Completely Off Gardening- Does anyone know of a good christian book publisher?

Hey guys, I was just wondering if any of you know a good christian book publisher? I am writing a book about a woman who adopts three children and raises them with christian principles. I am only about a third way through with only 22,300 words so far, but wanted to be prepared for the process ahead. This would be my first book ever written, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! Thoughts anyone?
Thanks so much.

Bid4Prizes- You Have Got To Check This Out!

Have you guys heard of It is the coolest sight ever! You have to check it out. The prizes offered are awesome too. The have some really cool prizes including a BMW! I would love to have all of the prized on the website but out where I live the BMW offered would get pelted to death by sand and rocks, I don't need a Plasma TV, there are six kids in my house and that thing would be broken in no time. So my top choice of prizes offered would be the Baja 110 ATV. I live on five acres of land which is attached to my mom and dad's five acres, not to mention the two mile block we live on out here. The roads are dirt, the streets are long and I can just feel that wind in my hair on a hot summer evening as I fly around the neighborhood. I NEED me a Baja 110!

These are my experimental plants that I put on the heating pad. They are exactly 7 days in the ground. I planted them last Tuesday, watered them, put he heating pad up to 70 degrees and 7 days later this is the result. I put a Pepsi can next to the tallest plant so you could see how tall they are on a scale that we are all familiar with. Crazy huh? I swear the germination for these seeds was 48 hours!

The pepper plant and tomato plant I put on the heating pad almost immediately started to wilt. I think the pad is only good for starting seeds. Any other time or even if it is left on for too long into the seed's growth it seems to have a negetive effect on them. I am getting my garden ready by putting up rabbit fence and tilling the ground once more. In a week or so I will be transplanting all my plants outdoors. It is starting to look like a forest in here with all these different plants every where.

It's been a while but just thought I would let you all know that I had purchased some pepper and tomato plants from Lowes today and decided to place only two plants on the heating pads. I'll let you know their progress compared to the others that are just on my planting shelf. I had to put all the plants in bigger containers because their roots were showing out the bottom of theirs. One tomato plant had flowering buds on it that I had to cut off because the plant is no where near strong enough to support tomatoes. Everything else I just put in more milk jugs and stuck on my shelf.
