I am so thankful for everyone who has given to our Sheltering Nepal rebuilding fund! #HopeinHumanity
$1,000 has been raised which equals about 20 shelters built! Each shelter can hold up to 5 families, that means at least 100 people have been helped through this giving!
I know many families are still suffering without shelter or food, but I am HOPEFUL that international neighbors and friends of Nepal are sharing their burden and doing more good than I will never know. Because we have seen such generosity, all the thousands of other people who are working hard to help Nepal, they must be making strides to.
Even though the rebuilding process will take time, the little moves we make forward together are life changing for those individuals involved.
I wish I had testimonies and stories to share, names and places of families being helped, but I don’t. And you know why? Because our friends are hard at work traveling and visiting those in need in villages. They are tired, they are suffering through the heat of the monsoon and they honestly don’t have time to sit and communicate long stories to me…but I trust that lives are being changed! And when the time is right, I will hear those stories and pass it along!
Thanks for being a part of Nepal! You can give or share our Sheltering Nepal fundraiser by checking it out on YouCaring.com. Click here to see the Sheltering Nepal fundraiser!
Please remember anytime you buy a My Color Friends paperback book, $5 will also go to this fundraiser for Nepali families!

Today we met with our Nepali friends and had a birthday party. Such a great way to start our last week in the place we have called home. As we are about to embark on our adventure to New Zealand, I am also celebrating the 2 year anniversary of publishing my first kindle kids book, White Went Around the World! So I get two fun and wonderful celebrations!
Packing up our lifetime of memories in Nepal is a big task. I remember sitting in our guest room late into the night learning about Kindle Direct Publishing and CreateSpace. Those hours of searching the web and uploading my ebook again and again (with slow internet mind you) were worth it!
I have grown into this role as author. And I look forward to the future that lies ahead in NZ–new possibilities, new colors, faster internet : ). I am also very encouraged because in March 2015, I have officially made the same amount of sales as ALL of 2014! Considering it’s only March, I feel I have a good thing going this year.
I have learned as a self-published author, momentum takes time. It also takes effort (and fast internet), so maybe with little more time on my hands once we land in NZ, My Color Friends books can really take off!
Just in case you are wondering: our children’s paperback books best sellers are:
Celebrating Elephants and memories of our home in Nepal!
Our memorable Safari in Namibia!
Real books, real places, real photos and a really fun adventure make for great learning in the hands of children!
It’s been a blast traveling and taking photos around the world and I am blessed that those photos have made great kids books. The colors of the world to be celebrated in our house forever, and I hope they are celebrated in your house too!
Thanks for reading friends!
When you have a shop and some one comes in to browse and walks away with one of your books it is ‘more natural’ (if I may)…but the world wide web has blew apart the walls of that shop and anyone, anywhere–and I mean people who speak French and live in Africa–can buy my little book with one click.
It amazes me.
So thank you dear citizens of the world
for buying Graceful Grey, Asian Elephants at Work and Play.
I wish I could meet you in person, shake your hand, say thank you, smile and wave as you leave my leave my little bookstore.
I checked my book sales today and did a little playing on the web and discovered that Graceful Grey is actually on Amazon.com’s Best Seller’s List for large print! #36 to be in fact. I will take that as another sign to keep moving forward with the My Color Friend Book Series!
Oh the internet! Now…what to do next?
Seriously. Although I will only stick to my 1 Free Tab, but what a beautiful Tab it is!
I’m not sure if I have done it exactly “right” or if anyone will actually look at it, but it does add that needed splash of color to my Facebook page.
