Wow! Praise the Lord that I'm advancing at last!
I'm happy not because my writing is so great, but because advancing means that God is sharpening the gifts that He's given me, which means I'll be able to use them more effectively for His Kingdom. I'm humbled to be among so many great "champions."
I would have been fine with third place, but second is okay with me!
Congrats to Kristi Peifer for first place in Beginner's! Your story was amazing and totally deserved it!
Thanks everyone for your comments and shout outs. And BIG
congratulations to everyone advancing to a new level! I really enjoy reading all your outstanding entries.
