Kathleen Erickson is CMN Honoree

Book signing at Kathleen's home.
 Kathleen Erickson

Please welcome Kathleen Erickson to the Caveman Miracle Network.  She invited me to her home in Arizona one year ago to meet her friends for a book signing event and it was a highlight of my trip. Kathleen wanted to know more about future writing projects and I shared a little bit about my journey to better health during our visit.  I talked about the silent killer lurking inside my body that was increasing my risk for a heart attack or stroke and how it turned out to be food related.  I promised the audience they would be able to read all about it in the next book.  Thank you, Kathleen, for giving me the opportunity to meet your friends and share an evening with them.  You are now an official member of the Caveman Miracle Network.  Have a great day.

Karen Harbin-Januzik and Husband, Brian Join CMN

I would like to thank Karen and her husband, Brian, for a fun evening they shared with my wife and me across the street from SHS on our last visit to Phoenix.  Karen and I were high school classmates who pursued marketing careers after graduation.  The most important take-away for me during our time together was this idea Karen shared that praying circles around your biggest dreams can actually help unleash them.

There's a reason my caveman network contains the word miracle in the name – it's a miracle how God brings the right people into my life at the right time to get His work done.  I can't do this alone.  Karen and Brian gave me a shot in the arm to inspire me to finish this book on time against all odds.  Thank you both for spending time with us.  You're part of the circle.  I think it's really cool you were married on the day "Pi Day" – 3.14.15.  Welcome to CMN.  Have a great day.

Leland and Tracy Cox Rolling, Honorary CMN Members

Leland and Tracy were visiting Christchurch, New Zealand when a magnitude 6.3 earthquake ripped the town apart.  The family was in the epicenter and barely escaped the room they were staying in.  The family accompanying Leland while he represented the USA in an international tennis event.  Click here for the guest post Leland wrote about the experience.  Speaking of writing, Leland's wife, Tracy, is an award-winning writer with a knack for connecting with her readers.  She's also an avid tennis player.  These two people are always encouraging me to do my best and I'm happy to call them friends.  Please welcome them to CMN as honorary members.  Have a great day.

Nancy Jay, Honorary CMN Member

Please welcome longtime friend and former co-worker, Nancy Jay, to the Caveman Miracle Network.  I've known Nancy for approximately 30 years.  All three of her children were babysitters for our kids when they were young.  Her husband, Roger, once a team-mate at my day job in Arizona, is the other half of this extraordinary couple.  One day when I was in need of some prayers, a package showed up unexpectedly from Nancy with some camouflage-colored wrist bands inside.  "Prayer Warrior" was inscribed on the wrist bands.  I used mine so often that it broke.  Nancy sent me a replacement.  She and her daughter were the last people we broke bread with when we departed California.  She told us she would pray for a safe journey.  Her prayers were answered and we arrived safely.  Thank you, Nancy and family, for keeping us in your prayers.  You are now officially part of the Caveman Miracle Network.  Have a great day.

Elliott Fox and Wife, Patty, Honorary CMN Members

A sly fox on the tennis courts and a true gentleman off the courts, Elliott appears ageless at 90 – perhaps because his bride, Patty, brings out the gleam in his eyes.  Please welcome this couple to the Caveman Miracle Network.  I miss them both but feel their presence whenever I recall memories of living in Southern California for 22 years.  Elliott can lob like no other and he makes tennis fun.  I'm thankful he introduced me at my first book signing.  These are two of my favorite people.  They are a blessing.  Have a great day.

Please Welcome Angel in the Outfield #1, Joan Brouillette

Joan Brouillette is one special lady.  She wouldn't stop raising her hand when I auctioned off a set of books written by my friends from my Christian Writers Critique Group.  Included in the set was book #1 of "God's Black Sheep Squadron," the first fruit of my fledgling writing career.  Joan was the top bidder at over $300 for the collection.  I didn't want to let go of her when she came up to claim her prize in the photo above.  She's a winner and an inspiration.  When I reached out for one hundred volunteers to be my "angels in the outfield" in support of my first book, join was the first to respond.  I thank God for her presence in my life.  God bless you, Joan, and your family.  You are my hero.  Have a great day.
