After more than three years of working on it, I’m thrilled beyond words to announce the Just 18 Summers® brand of family and parenting products and resources.
The idea for this project came about because of something that happened at church one Sunday morning. My pastor, Rev. Ralph Sexton, had dedicated a baby to the Lord. As the parents turned to walk from the platform, Rev. Sexton said, “Don’t forget you have just 18 summers. Take time to make some memories.”
Whew, the poignancy of that slammed into me. I knew immediately that God wanted me to do something with that thought, but I didn’t have a clue as to how big the project was going to become. What I thought was going to be a simple book has turned into a complete brand with plans for a movie, music, a line of books, and other products.
The time with our children goes by way too fast. Blink and it’s gone! Moms and dads, how many summers do YOU have left . . . and what are you going to do with them? At Just 18 Summers® we want to help you make the most of those years with your child and to help you squeeze the sweetness from every season. I hope you’ll join me on December 26 for an announcement about the release of the first piece of the Just 18 Summers brand®!
