Thanks to Tyson Wynn, Ronie Kendig, and Allison Wilson, I was able to watch a livestream and a live update blog of the awards gala… sitting here in my pajamas on my bed 🙂  Authors Beth Vogt and Serena Miller assured me that was okay as they were also joining the livestream in their pjs!  I clapped and cheered as though I really had been in attendance even while feverishly typing my own updates on Twitter.  I even had 3 categories in which I was hoping all 3 nominees would win.  Alas, this was not to be… but without further ado, here are the 2015 ACFW Carol Award winners.  (FTC Disclosure)
