Please drop me a note!

I am so excited to finally be able to offer this compilation to you! This 40-page issue offers a unique, "inside" look at Hidden Wisdom's humble beginning. I've added notes to many of the articles to help you understand why I wrote each story. In this compilation, I have tried to reproduce the appearance of the original issues to a large degree so all the graphics and fonts (with the exception of the cover, editorial, and 2-page section about HW) are those originally used.

I have several goals for putting this compilation together: no, it's not to "show off" my writings -- on the contrary, I don't think these are examples of fine writing at all. :-) (1) I want to share part of HW's history with those of you who have had such a part in its making and (2) I want to inspire you young would-be editors and editresses, and show that there's nothing wrong with starting small. Just do the best you can with the talents and equipment the Lord has given you: He will bless your efforts as you follow His leading!

I pray these humble little articles will be a blessing and inspiration to each of you who get a copy. To God alone be all glory and praise -- great things He hath done!!
