As several of you have noticed, I haven’t been writing on my blog lately. I just didn’t have peace about writing about the COVID-19 crisis and how it didn’t change my life drastically like it has others, until today. But before I write about that, I want to thank the people in my life who … Continue reading An Unexpected Blessing From A Complete Stranger
Recently, my parents and I found a presentation my third grade teacher, Mrs Nancy Simpson gave in 2002 at a teachers workshop. We found it very interesting because you see, she wrote about the year I was in her awesome third grade class. Mrs Nancy Simpson is a teacher I’ll never forget. She was like … Continue reading From My Third Grade Teacher’s Perspective
It’s funny (odd, not ha-ha funny) how things change yet stay the same. Here’s a lighthearted example. I was recently looking through the old scrapbooks I made when I was a kid. I found a picture of me doing the “this is me” pose with a big grin on my face. That picture was taken … Continue reading Struggling With The “I Can’t” Syndrome?

I just wanted to thank everyone for your encouragement and support in me writing a book. I haven’t told very many people about the new book idea I’ve been praying about, but I’ve decided to share this conversation with my writing friend, Anne Watson, so you can pray with me for the right direction to … Continue reading Another Way To Look At It…
On Tuesday, I was on Facebook mindlessly scrolling when, all of a sudden, three Memories from five years ago appeared on my News Feed. For you readers who aren’t on Facebook, I will explain. Facebook shows all the items you post on that day, and then every year on that date Facebook reminds you of … Continue reading How Much Do I Need A Savior?
These last few days I’ve been attending a Christian writing conference called the Declare conference. This year the theme was Get Your Hopes Up. Where do I even begin? I am undone. Overwhelmed. Inspired. But most of all I am hopeful about the future of the writing journey the Lord has me on. Honestly, I … Continue reading Get Your Hopes Up
Have you ever tried to prevent something from happening that you knew eventually would happen? I never plan on falling but I know eventually I will trip and fall–it’s just going to happen. I’ll never forget falling out of the car in the church parking lot when I was a kid and having to get … Continue reading When Life Trips You Up, Get Up and Keep On Going!
