Linger Longer in the Word!


  1. Thank you so much, Connie for your wonderful overview of the Michigan Visual Faith Retreat - it is so nice to see this. When I am wrapped up in the details, I realized later that I didn't linger long enough over any one thing, so it so nice to see these photos and those others have posted...glad we did FaceTime LIVE too. I wanted to be sure to add the name of Laureen Crocker for her wonderful journaled notebooks on the display table. She really has taken that aspect to a nice level!
    So appreciate everyone's support, contributions and participation - especially you, Connie, and Pat Maier!!

    1. added Laureen and it takes a team for all of it! thanks so much to Candice!

  2. We would love to have you in Central California! Is that any kind of possible or do you know someone out here who does the same kind of thing?

    1. Cathey- some things are possible- we do have a Visual Faith Coach in CA--- email me at and I can give you some other details- I am also a presenter at an educators confs in Nov 2018 in CA


Thanks for adding your thoughts and comments- they are greatly appreciated.
