The companion … Continue reading Book Review and GIVEAWAY: Lies Moms Believe (and Companion Bible Study) by Rebekah Hargraves
It's Friday! Time for a little shorty for you to read. To be completely honest, I haven't been doing much writing over the past few weeks as life has pretty much dog-piled on me. However, I'm getting out from under it, feeling more like my normal self, and am once again pumping out some words. … Continue reading Writing Prompt: The Light
I've written about anxiety and mental health in other places but not here. I suppose you could say I was anxious to share too much of myself here, because after all, I'm a writer, therefore I should be writing about writery things, right? (Yes, the ridiculousness of the last sentence is not lost on me, … Continue reading Let’s Talk Anxiety
What the book is about: Sometimes the Magic Works is a super practical book about writing by the eminent Terry Brooks. With 20 novels under his belt and a fairly successful career (okay, that maaaay be an understatement), I think he's qualified to give a few tips. He covers topics from choosing a book to … Continue reading What I’m Reading: Sometimes the Magic Works by Terry Brooks
Note from me: This was SUPPOSED to post yesterday, but apparently I don't know how to read numbers and I got the date wrong. So, instead, you're getting a special Thursday post instead of your regularly expected Wednesday post. If you've been around here for any length of time, you know that I've kept things … Continue reading Now It’s Personal

It's Friday, the day I share my own writing! I was reading the story of Disney's Sleeping Beauty to my kids last week and parts of the story bothered me, so I decided to rewrite it. I know that many before me have endeavored to do the same thing, so it's not terribly original, I'm … Continue reading Sleeping Beauty Rewrite
Hey! Exciting news! My stories are up on youtube now! I cut apart the videos from my facebook live last month and have posted the first of the three stories I read during that event. Now, instead of sitting through the entire facebook live, you can just head on over to my channel and listen … Continue reading Stories on Youtube!
What this book is about: This book follows Marianne as she discovers, at sixty, what life is really about. I know that sounds like a trite and boring description, but I thought and thought about it and it was the best way to concisely describe the plot that slowly sinks its talons in and doesn't … Continue reading Book Review: Little French Bistro
Easter. Probably the most significant holiday in the Christian tradition. I suppose we could certainly argue between Christmas and Easter, because with Christmas, there is no Easter. Without Jesus being born, he couldn't die. And if he didn't die, he couldn't live AGAIN. That's really the significance of this day in Christendom. Jesus didn't stay … Continue reading Easter!
