A Little Extra Something From Me
I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve said that CFRR (Christian Fiction Readers Retreat) changed my life back in 2019. Since then I’ve attended several other reading retreats, but I will never be able to forget my first. Although CFRR is retired now, the JustRead Rendezvous is being put on by the same ladies and it is SURE to be an AMAZING time. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for this and the sweet reunions I’ve been waiting far too long for. When you hear people talk about our bookish “CF family” online–we really do mean it. And the beauty of it is that more are always welcome. There are no strangers after the first 10 minutes. If you’ve never attended a reading event before I can’t recommend it enough. It’s the best experience ever and can’t be explained… it has to be experienced!
