News & Events

This will be our 30th annual seminar! October 20, 2018 9 am – 3 pm.

We are excited to have Michelle Medlock Adams join us. Here’s a bit about her:

Author of over 80 books with close to 4 million books sold, Michelle’s latest children’s book, I Love You the Mostest just won the prestigious Maxwell medal, and her book My First Day of School also took second place in that same children’s category. In addition, her book Happy Birthday to You! won the Selah Award for Best Children’s Book in 2017—her third Selah for Best Children’s Book since 2012. In fact, in 2014 Michelle’s board book God Knows You not only won the Selah for Best Children’s Book but also won the esteemed Book of the Year honor over all other Selah winners. And, her latest release for women, Love & Care For The One and Only You (Worthy) was a finalist for a Christian Retailing Best Award in the Devotional Category and earned “The Gold” for best devotional in the 2017 Illumination Awards. In addition, her book When Chocolate Isn’t Enough: An Inspirational Survival Guide for Moms (Worthy Inspired) earned “The Gold” for best devotional in the 2016 Illumination Awards.

Our seminar includes 4 sessions plus a Q&A session, homemade catered lunch, book tables and great networking opportunities! It is held at the Holland Free Methodist Church, conveniently located near both the turnpike and expressway.
