Those who know Kit and Drew well also know we are both strong introverts. Only one activity brings out an extrovertish quality–meeting diverse people. The Coonses are like a dog with its head out a car window while meeting people very different than ourselves.
Christmas markets–where we sell our books–give us that opportunity. You can learn something from any person. Surprisingly many ask questions and are open to advice. We offer our meaningful novels and biblical Life-Skills books and often encourage people to look at their own life experiences to see what God can teach them. Getting outside our comfort zone to meet and talk to diverse people has enriched our lives.
The Arkansas Democrat Gazette newspaper interviewed us as authors and printed a few comments within the article about Small Business Saturday in Section B of today’s paper.
