Look what’s available for pre-order from Amazon and Barnes & Noble! This thing I wrote last year is going to be available in a few months.

I’ve barely even told you this…. -1 I’m traveling to Uganda with Compassion International. Once again, this non plane-riding mom got a bunch of shots and was offered the Go Girl (best tagline in the history of taglines: Don’t take life sitting down, apparently I’m still into taking life sitting down, I’ve never really been a Go-Getter (get it?!)) I’ll get on way too many planes, poo in another country, and spend time with children and families who are living in poverty. And I’ll be documenting all of it here on this blog. (Remember last time I did this?) This time my sister will be on the same trip along with two creative bloggers: Joy the Baker and Jeff Goins and of course Shaun Groves will be there along with the precious Brianne McKoy and SURPRISE! Wess Stafford, the President Emeritus of Compassion will be leading the team. We’ll meet way too many adorable children and tell you about the work the local churches are doing through Compassion International and sponsors like you.  Our goal? To find sponsors for 400 children in Uganda.
