  • Yay, God!

    It’s funny, I’m a writer, and yet I don’t know exactly how to write what I’m going to attempt to write. So, I ask the Lord to help me brag on Him just a moment. In 2007, I met a woman at a small writer’s conference here in Topeka who confessed to me that her […]

  • Happy New Year

    Forty minutes before our midnight hour as I write this. Hubs is sound asleep, the children are all at their friends, the black-eyed peas are waiting to be cooked and I’m taking a break from writing for just a short moment. I wanted to share with you that I have my word for 2014 FOCUS, […]

  • Taking it Down

    I hope y’all enjoyed the 24 Days of Christmas. I had so much fun reading all of the special memories from some of my favorite authors.And the pictures, I loved seeing pieces of their Christmas too. I can’t wait to do it again next year, Lord willing. I used to get depressed during the holidays. […]

  • Taking Every Thought Captive

    I am typically a very shy, very introverted person. Most writers are. We like our caves. We like characters so we can manipulate their lives the way we wish without having to deal with a bunch of drama. So, I guess it’s no surprise that my people skills are thoroughly lacking. Okay, well let’s just […]

  • Too busy? How do you think they feel?

    A few years ago I was a membership chair for a large writer’s group. One of the questions on the membership renewal form was are you interested in volunteering? If so, how? Once I received an answer that gave me pause, and then I became offended, then down right angry. I realize know that the […]

  • January 2nd

    On Writing A few of my writer friends decided they wanted to do a NaNoWriMo sort of thing in January. We could work on something we already started on or start something new. I’m opting for revising what I started for Nano and then finishing up the word count I need to finish the book. […]

  • Prayer Walk Ramblings

    Last Sunday, after a beautiful praise and worship service our church, Imago Dei, dispersed. We set out on a prayer walk, some of us went out in pairs, others sat on the corner and played music, while others went off on their own. Hubs and I went off by ourselves. We began with a very […]

  • Finding Contenment in Trials II

    There is something I’m just not getting. I haven’t quite figured it out yet, but the fact I know I’m not getting something seems to be forward progress. My daughter is reading a story about Hudson Taylor, a missionary to China during the mid to late 1800s. According to the story, one of Taylor’s preparations […]

  • Delight Yourself in the Lord

    For the last year I’ve been struggling with my writing. Between life getting in the way and the loss of  my awesome critique partners due to their lives getting in the way of their writing, I’ve been floundering. Finding a new critique group has taken a few adjustments and getting used to. Their styles vary […]

  • God and Social Media

    Don’t tell me God can’t use platforms like Facebook. Twice this week I’ve joked around about my prayers not only not being answered but having received the exact opposite of those prayers.  Did it stop me from approaching the throne of God? No. But that didn’t mean my faith wasn’t shaken just a little. I kept […]
