Nick on Video
Last week we talked about the meaning of Easter. At our Easter chapel service this year, we heard about Bethany Hamilton and the strength she has found through Jesus. Take a look at this video of Nick Vujicic (click on the words, “Nick on Video” above) , who was a special guest speaker here in Honolulu during our Easter weekend. What comments do you have?

Wow! What a blessing it was for us to attend Friday’s chapel service with Sarah Hill as guest speaker. She reminded us about Peter’s experience walking on water with Jesus in Matthew 14. Sarah also talked about her friendship with Bethany Hamilton and the time she spent with Bethany in the hospital after Bethany was attacked by a shark and lost her arm. Sarah even shared her own experiences with injury and disappointment. What important messages did you receive that morning? What connections did you make?

On Friday, 3/18 we were very fortunate to participate in a writing workshop with Margaret Peterson Haddix, the author of Dexter The Tough, The Girl with 500 Middle Names, the Missing series and many other books. She talked about how to develop characters in your stories. What did you learn from her that you think is important to remember? How do you think she applied her ideas for character development when she wrote Dexter The Tough? How can you use what you learned from her in your next story?
