Look for Vicki's fourth story in the Chicken Soup for the Soul anthology Random Acts of Kindness coming in February 2017. Additonally, plans are to release a book in March 2017 of current member's memoirs for the 150th Anniversary of Trinity Lutheran Church in Lawrence, KS. The book, A Congregation Remembers It's History, will also include a few memoirs from past congregations as well as some very favorite recipes. Vicki comments, "This is an exciting endevor with colleague Micki Carroll to bring a lasting momento of celebration to present and future generations. 2017 is also the 500th anniversary of the Reformation - something Lutherans in particular celebrate."
Also look for Vicki's story in Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Joy of Christmas that was released October 2016. This makes the second year in a row for inclusion in the anthology's Christmas edition, and her 3rd entry into the Chicken Soup collection of books. "This was another opportunity for me to introduce my late husband Steve to new audiences. It's a story focused on how a whimsical Noah's Ark, made out of gingerbread, helped my family deal with our loss," explains Vicki.
Speaking of other activities, Vicki declares, "I've just finished editing one of the best memoirs I've ever read! (Find it now on Amazon.com). It was such a pleasure to edit A Journey Worth Taking: God, M.S. and Me by Mark Abraham because it was thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining to read." Written initially as a way to share his past with his young adult children, it became clear that others would enjoy his adventures as well. Even his friends didn't realize he had worked for Billy Graham, served as one of the first regional directors for Habitat for Humanity, smuggled Bibles behind the Iron Curtain and founded Minnesota Dads at Home. If you've ever wondered about sleeping in a bat cave, building houses on an Indian reservation, or coping with a debilitating disease, this is the book to read. Look for it to be available on Amazon.com very soon.
Vicki's first published children's book entitled, An Afternoon with the Christmas Angel, is wrapping up with the final illustrations from artist Warren Lane. A release date in 2017 is planned. Vicki notes: "Many parents struggle with how to teach children the difference between Santa Claus and the true meaning of the season. This book incorporates both the secular and non-secular for a fun, interesting, and gentle lesson about what Christians believe." This is just the book for parents and grandparents to read to younger children as well as the perfect read for older children.
