Whoa, 2013. You rocked my world. This year: I wrote a book ("Girl at The End of the World" is available March 18, 2014!). Matt entered the Catholic Church. Jewel graduated from middle school and spent the summer dancing with American Ballet Theatre. Jude won two writing awards at school, James brought home straight A's. The twins finished Montessori preschool and began kindergarten.
This Christmas, I am filled with gratitude and a deep peace I haven't experienced in years. Writing a book about growing up in a cult was the most difficult and painful thing I've done--second only to birthing five children. But now that it's finished, I have an affirming sense that my book will encourage, help and inspire others. I am so grateful to all of you for loving me through this year. Many of you have read my blog for YEARS and I wish I could hug each of you and say thank you!
Instead, I send you this virtual Christmas card and all my love. Please "sign" my Christmas card by leaving your greeting in the comment box (my kids always love seeing the different hometowns and countries so please be sure to include your location!).
Merry Christmas from EE & Family Los Angeles, California USA
