Big News!

Here are the show notes for the most recent episode of the Christian Publishing Show.

You can listen to this episode here.


I have a couple of big announcements.

If you have been wondering why there hasn’t been a new episode in a few weeks I have a good reason. 

Announcement #1: New Baby!

We just had a baby! Jack Umstattd was on December 23rd weighing 9 pounds 10 ounces. Both he and my wife are tired from a long delivery but doing well overall. For those keeping score at home, we now have three children. Mercy who is 3, Tommy who is 2, and baby Jack. 

Announcement #2: Big Changes Coming for the Christian Publishing Show

Steve Laube and I will be making an important announcement about the future of the Christian Publishing Show at a live event next week

Immediately following the announcement, Steve and I will host one of our popular Q&A Webinars.

Announcement #3: Live Q&A Webinar With Steve Laube

After the announcement, we will answer your questions. If you have never come to one of these Q&A sessions, you really should. They are a lot of fun, especially for those who attend live as we have fun in the chat. 

Plus, Steve Laube is a wealth of knowledge and he only does events like this a handful of times a year. 

We do a live Q&A event a few times a year and they are generally a big hit. 

Webinar Info:

  • What: Webinar & Live Q&A
  • When: Wednesday, Jan 12, at 4 pm Central Time (Convert Timezone)
  • Cost: Free!
  • Registration: Registration Link
  • Replay? Yes! Everyone who registers will be sent a link to the replay. 

That is it for the announcements. Happy New Year!

      Welcome to the family,
      welcome to the world!
      Welcome to eternity,
      where Saviour’s flag’s unfurled!
      Welcome to the wonder
      of all that which is real,
      where serpent’s head’s crushed under
      Jesus’ mighty heel.
      Welcome to the church so bright,
      based upon a rock
      who in that Garden, in that night,
      did far more than talk,
      and though Christ’s reprimand was deep
      was still enjoined to feed His sheep.

    How wonderful, Thomas. Congratulations to both you and your wife on the birth of your third child. And don’t believe any negative press about Christmas babies. Our youngest was born on Christmas Eve and we made sure she enjoys her special birthday. She’s 21 now and we’ve had no complaints. Remember: presents should be wrapped in birthday paper, not Christmas wrapping paper.

    Congratulations to you and your wife, Thomas, on adding Jack to your beautiful family. My mother’s birthday was also December 23rd so it’s a special day for me!

    Hope your wife and Jack both rest up well. I look forward to the webinar on the 12th. Blessings!
