Find the past and current contests on the Writing Contests page >>
This was so hard, so I asked my faithful author, friend, and judge to give me a hand with choosing the winners. Thank you, Colleen Reece >> After seeing the winners, scroll down for a gift for all of you!
And the winners are . . .
- First Place (book and socks) – Fallyn Christie. I think that the most meaningful gift that Andi could receive would be a lost letter from her father. A letter from her father would be meaningful because she would have something that he wrote just to her. (Note from Mrs. M. After Fallyn discovered she had won, she sent me this letter Father wrote to Andi. Thanks, Fallyn. It’s very sweet!)
- Second Place (book) – Susannah Shutt. The best gift I could give Mother is obedience. She asked me to stay with Aunt Rebecca over Christmas since she couldn’t come to Fresno. I didn’t want to, but I decided that my gift to her and Auntie would be to obey happily. I think Jesus is happy too.
- Tie for Second Place – Arabella Waugh.
If I could have her back,
Just one more time,
One more day,
If I could hear her tender, delicate neigh,
If I could stroke her flowing, silvery mane,
If I could once more hug her,
Embrace her golden neck,
This gift would surpass any other . . . Oh Taffy, my horse.
A Christmas Surprise for the Rest of You
