How’s your fall calendar shaping up?
If it’s anything like mine, it’s already full and a little intimidating. We’re going to ignore the impending doom you might feel as the days get shorter and busier, and I’m going to ask you to pencil in just a few more things.
*AHEM* That means grab your pencil. Don’t just sit there.
Thank you. Now we can begin.

It’s our monthly book club meeting! Since we closed the office, we moved our meeting to the local library. It’s at 6:30 at the New Palestine branch of the Hancock County Public Library. You can RSVP (it’s free!) or ask questions here. This month we’re reading Breaking Free: How I Escaped Polygamy, the FLDS Cult, and My Father, Warren Jeff by Rachel Jeffs. Jeffs’ story of growing up at the religious compound and then leaving her family behind is so good. Grab a copy and join us for the discussion.

I’m hosting another writer’s workshop. If you’re near Indy, I’d love for you to join us! You can visit the link here for event details.
If you’re not near Indy or it doesn’t fit your schedule, there is an online course option also! On October 5th, I’ll send you the workshop (teaching, handouts, notes, resources, etc.) to your inbox where you can do it at your leisure. There are only 25 spots open for this so don’t wait too long. (Eventually, I will create an evergreen writing course you can buy anytime, but I’m limiting this as a small trial run.)

I’m joining the Flourish Gathering for a panel discussion at their conference this year. My friend Shannan Martin (author of Falling Free: Rescued from the Life I Always Wanted and The Ministry of Ordinary Places: Waking Up to God’s Goodness Around You) is the keynote speaker, and it’s going to be a full day of being encouraged, challenged, and loved. The Flourish Gathering “exists to inspire women to live freely and love who God created them to be.” I’d love to see you there. Grab your ticket before they sell out!
And finally (you don’t have to write this on your calendar unless you really want to), the Not Terrible podcast is back on Monday, September 23rd. My friend Jess and I host a podcast about mental health, personal growth, and whatever else we feel like talking about. We laugh a lot and cry a little. We tell stories and share learning–if you enjoy my writing, I think you’ll like the podcast. If you can’t wait until the 23rd, there are 49 episodes you can listen to in the mean time.
It’s going to be a busy fall. I can’t wait.
