A journey into me

By now, if you have been a reader of mine for any length of time, you know that I wrote my first book last year and published it on Amazon (under my real name-sorry) on January 2nd of this year.  The point of writing that book was to see if I actually had the guts … Continue reading A journey into me

Who God wants me to be

Lately I have been doing a lot of reflecting on my life.  There has been no significant event to bring on that reflection.  Sometimes you are just able to step back and see things for what they are. I am a 37-year-old wife and mother.  I am an aunt and friend.  I am a dedicated … Continue reading Who God wants me to be

Breaking the writer’s rules

I consider myself a writer.  It's what I love to do.  It's what I am good at.  I have been known to be sitting in a bar, doctor's office, or in my car at a stoplight and have to break out the pad of paper because an idea just struck.  I've even been known to … Continue reading Breaking the writer’s rules

A bad review

I know I am not the world's most amazing writer.  I have no delusions of taking the best-seller lists by storm or putting Stephen King out of a job.  I do take pride in my writing though.  Writing is my way to purge myself of pain and heartbreak.  It is my way to praise and … Continue reading A bad review

It’s glorious and oh-so-amazing to take a moment, look back and see all the little ways God has worked in your life. Whether it is something small or something to turned out to be huge God is always there working on you and working for you.

Blessings

Sometimes it’s difficult to see the way God acts in our own lives. Between the rush to get to work in the morning, the boss who can be a total jerk, long lines at the grocery store, getting housework done and dinner on the table, and helping the kids with their homework it’s very easy … Continue reading Blessings
