Happy Spring, Friends!
Those of you who know me know that I love learning about and writing about strong women! MRS. NOAH may not have done all the things I give her credit for in my book, but I like to imagine her coming alongside Noah, rolling up her sleeves, and getting the job done! Women who are strong, capable, fearless, faithful, wise and smart inspire me to try and be those things to the young women in my life.
That’s why a few years ago I started working on a picture book about Queen Elizabeth II and her life before she ascended to the throne of England. I’ve always admired her, but when I started researching her, I learned so much about her that I didn’t know that she instantly became one of my personal heroes. Underneath the quiet grace the world gets to see is a woman of incredible strength, wisdom, faith, and commitment to the job she’s been given. If you have a few minutes to read any of the wonderful books or articles about her that are available right now to celebrate her jubilee year, I promise you’ll be inspired.
Today, in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s 96th birthday, I’m giving away three signed copies of MRS. NOAH! To enter, simply stop by my blog before midnight tonight (April 21, 2022) and leave a comment about the Queen or about another strong woman in your life. Your name will be entered in a drawing, and I’ll announce the winners on Monday, April 25th on the blog!
Thanks for being with me on this journey!
Sensibility-“I cannot lead you into battle, I do not give you laws or administer justice but I can do something else, I can give you my heart and my devotion to these old islands and to all the peoples of our brotherhood of nations.” Queen Elizabeth II
Sense- “It’s worth remembering that it is often the small steps, not the giant leaps, that bring about the most lasting change.” Queen Elizabeth II

I too have admired the Queen (my neighbors are from England) as she always presents herself as dignified and it’s easy to see how much she loves her family and country. I am amazed at all of the world changes she has personally witnessed. Long live the Queen!
Thank you so much, Danielle! I agree, it’s amazing to think of all the things she’s been part of or witnessed down through the years. AND of all of the Prime Ministers she’s been through in her long reign! So glad you enjoyed the post, and since you’re the only one to comment so far, I’ll be sending you a signed copy of MRS. NOAH! Please send me your address (I may have it, but just in case) to http://firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll get your book in the mail! Thanks again for stopping by!
