On Wednesday we announced Rosalind Shirley as the winner of our cruise retreat--be sure to read her inspiring story. Now, we've added yet another name to the guest list: new Abingdon Women author Melissa Spoelstra! In August we'll publish Melissa's Bible study Jeremiah: Daring to Hope in an Unstable World. And in February, she'll share her gift for ministry on our Abingdon Women - "Your Life, Your Faith" Cruise, February 2nd - 7th, 2015.
Last month we introduced you to Melissa with Part One of a series of personal interviews. In two weeks we'll post Part Two, in which Melissa shares the joys and challenges of writing. Stay tuned!
Meanwhile, if you haven't already, make plans to join us for what is going to be an amazing spiritual retreat at sea. We've planned 5 nights of fellowship, study, and faith renewal, as we cruise roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale aboard the Celebrity Constellation (starting at $399).
Melissa will join fellow Abingdon Women authors Babbie Mason and Jessica LaGrone to present you and Christian women from around the country with an unforgettable experience. In addition to the on-board activities and times of fellowship, you'll enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches of Cozumel, Mexico and Key West, Florida.
