Celebration Events



Last night all ten of us met at House of James where we were warmly welcomed by Lando Klassen and staff


Seeing two books displayed so beautifully cannot help but deepen the impact for us
 on what God has done!



There was a lot of laughter and excitement as we lined up at the table
and chatted with old and new friends!


together is a good feeling ....


Amy Gingerich, our editorial director came from Ohio


Russ Eanes, director of Menno Media, from Virginia and Ben Penner, marketing manager, from Kansas.


We were treated to live piano music, freshly baked treats from the new book,
coffees, lates, smoothies . . .


It was a party! Even the Mennonite Boys found a table to get aquainted a bit more.


Our book signing today is in Chilliwack ~ at the beautiful gift store Winks ~ Saturday 1-3


To celebrate we will be giving another chance to win a book.
One winner will be chosen here to win a Celebrations book and one winner will be chosen on our Facebook page.

  2. Hi, Tracey here from Winnipeg. So wonderful to see that your second book is already looking so successful. I purchased two copies of the new book already and will be giving them away as bridal shower gifts, so I guess I will need to order another one for myself unless I am fortunate enough to win a copy. I will be posting this to facebook to share with my friends and family. Have a great weekend ladies!

  3. Sharing......what a strong word. I love your website and use many of your wonderful foods to share with friends in need. It may be an illness, death or just someone who needs a kindness. I have found in my life that sharing a casserole, dessert or whatever I might whip up can be the difference between "sanity and insanity". Receiving or giving, it works both ways. I would love a cookbook so I can share some of the yummy foods from the book. Mary Hostetler

  26. Thank you for your recipes (and books). As a person who has had to eat gluten free for over 30 years, I was grateful to find your website several years ago. My husband can now enjoy foods that he grew up with, since many of the family recipes have been adapted by you all. I do share your website with many friends who need GF recipes and they are most grateful and I will continue sharing your website! ekh
