Merry Christmas to all & all a goodnight!

Hark! the heral angles sing,
"Glory to the new-born King;
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled !"
Joyful, all ye nations, rise.
Join the triumph of the skies.
With th'angelic hosts proclaim
"Christ is born in Bethlehem!"
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the new-born King!
(painting by yours truly, Merry Christmas)

Jingle Bells & Wedding Bells

Congratulations B & B (their nickname not mine!) We're so happy for you! Brandon is one of the first friends I made in college. (Pieces of Glass fans may remember B and our many awkward moments) Notice the painting in the picture with champagne (he photoshoped it for her benefit) God bless you Brandon and the future Mrs. Carmichael!


Sorry ladies--Brandon Carmichael is offically off the market. For details check out:

Jingles Bells & Shameless Plugs

It's Christmas time and I've begun filling orders for autographed copies of Pieces of Glass.
(I warned you this was a shameless plug)
If you live in the Cedar Rapids area, simply drop me a note with the # of copies, names of recipients (also if you would like a special message please script it out for me) and I can make sure I get it to you ASAP (First come first serve--Now I really feel like Hallmark. . .)
Please drop me a note at:
Also please include your address and telephone #
Books are $10 each (no tax)
Unfortunately Visa & Mastercard are a little beyond my capabilities.

If you live outside the Cedar Rapids area, well I'm just thrilled your interested and we will get them to you too! Within reason, of course. . . Reuben (in Africa) You already got one! Wink!)

It runs in the family. . .

Dr. Abel Ndjerareou, has been called one of Chad's most prolific authors. Around here we call him Kaga (grandpa) or Baba (father.)

Google the man's name and you'll see an impressive list of sites, in multiple languages, that stand as a testament to his life's passion for God and the African church.

I'm incredibly lucky to share this man's legacy as a Ndjerareou, and as a daughter-in-law, marrying into a great family. But one of the most surprising parts of marrying Nate, was that he grew-up under the tutelage of two distinguished scholars and authors. As a direct result Nate is actually more prepared than I am for the long hours, and disciplined time away from family that my speaking and writing demand. By now, we shouldn't be so surprised by God's intimate weaving of our lives, but it never ceases to amaze me.

At the moment, I'm thrilled to brag about one of Baba's recent accomplishments, (we also currently share the same publisher.) Zondervan's hailing the new AFRICAN BIBLICAL COMMENTARY (in which my Baba's a contributor) as "A Monumental Work" -John Stott & "A Publishing Landmark" -Rick Warren.

Yesterday, I saw it on (link below) and found that one of Baba's segments had been chosen for the demo excerpt! Make sure all of you put it on your Christmas list! You never know when understanding the Pentateuch from an African perspective will come in handy!
