Congratulations to Virgil Youngblood, a longtime member of FaithWriters, for being our first contender for the 2019 Best of the Best.

I wonder who else will join him over the next 12 months. It may be you ... enter the Challenge for the opportunity to be considered one of the Best of the Best.

Love, Deb

It doesn't happen very often that a Level 1 entrant places first in the Editors' Choice. Congratulations to Rachel Jamerson on her win.

Congratulations to OLD timer Sally Hanan, for her fabulous return to the challenge (and the TOP of the challenge.

That's it for the third quarter. Just ONE more quarter of opportunities to qualify for this year's Best of the Best. Eight more entries to list here.

Enjoy the break - and we'll see you April 4!
