Buy Djubi!

My brother-in-law is one of the masterminds behind a cool new game that’s a twist on the traditional game of catch. A Nickelodeon publication recently rated Djubi #2 on a list of cool outdoor games for kids. Check it out! You’ll enjoy playing it, and, if nothing else, you can brag, “I know a lady who’s the brother-in-law of the guy who helped create this game…” 🙂

Hot Off the Press!

Yesterday my friend Molly at Soundforth emailed me to tell me she had a copy of my newest children’s Christmas program in her hands and that it was literally still hot from the press. 🙂 Now a copy is in my hands, and I’m delighted to see the finished product.

If you’re looking for a musical children’s Christmas program to use this year, I’d like to present “The Gift of Christmas” to you for your consideration. The program involves a simple play with few characters, lots of Scripture narration which allows the program to be useful for either small or large groups, and beautiful songs arranged by my husband, composer Dan Forrest. The emphasis of this program is on God’s gift of grace and His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

I have another children’s Christmas program available from Soundforth, but this one is my favorite. I love the gospel focus in this one. (Can you tell I’m excited?) I hope you’ll check out this program if you’re looking for something like this to use in your ministry this year.

Merry Christmas! 🙂

Change of Address

We left Kansas on Sunday morning, and I was more sad about it than I had expected to be. For months I’ve been so excited about moving back to SC and living in our own home, so I didn’t anticipate the sad feeling in my stomach as we said goodbye to KU, our beloved camp, and our dear friends from church. Our years in Kansas were wonderful. I’ll never forget the beautiful farmlands, the unpretentious dear people who call Kansas their home, the simple country life we enjoyed, the friends who became family at Amazing Grace Baptist Camp, Dan’s wonderful experiences with the students and faculty at KU, or the culture and incredible food along Massachusettes Street.

But here we are, back in SC, renewing friendships with our dear friends we hated saying goodbye to three years ago. Their kids are strangers to me now, but we’ll catch up. Things are going great. We love our new home and all the closet space we have (Wow!). We love having the summer free from camp responsibilities to do do “summery things”–gardening, swimming, sleeping in, playing in the water hose, visiting the ocean… We love having family one mile away. Overall, it’s wonderful to be back home. But still, there’s a part of me that will always call Kansas “home” too.

Congratulations, Dr. Forrest!

My husband successfully defended his dissertation yesterday and officially earned the title DR. Dan Forrest. I’m very proud of him for the work he’s done over the past 3 years, for the testimony he’s had for the Lord, and for how he’s given God the glory for every good gift we have received (and there have been many.)

By the way, his dissertation piece is just fabulous. I can’t wait for the world to hear it, and especially the Christian community, because it’s very moving and worshipful. The head of Dan’s dissertation committee asked Dan to sign his copy, because he’s confident it will be a piece that will live on and become famous. We’ll see. 🙂
