Mother’s Day was certainly unique this year due of the COVID-19 pandemic. For me, the week leading up to Mother’s Day was interesting as it was full of video interviews and preparations for various opportunities to share my story. I recorded an interview with a local pastor (and friend of mind) for his Mother’s DayContinue reading “My Week of Interviews – And Sharing One with You!”

What the Bible Taught Me About Writing
I’ve written two books. I blog. Occasionally, I summarize my thoughts into 280 characters and tweet them to everybody and nobody. I post updates on Facebook and “The Gram” (as I heard a cool twenty-something call it). I’ve even written a children’s Bible curriculum. No, this isn’t my resume. The point I’m trying to make is,Continue reading “What the Bible Taught Me About Writing”
3 Things I Expected and 3 Things That Surprised Me About Releasing A Book.
My latte not only tasted delightful, but it looked good too. How accomplished it must have felt to bring joy to my senses of sight, smell, taste, and touch all wrapped in one warm ceramic mug. That is, if a caffeinated beverage can feel accomplished. My remaining sense, my sense of hearing, was also beingContinue reading “3 Things I Expected and 3 Things That Surprised Me About Releasing A Book.”
When I was 10 years old, my dad took the position of pastor at Emmanuel Community Church. Six weeks later, my mom died suddenly in our kitchen while sitting at the table. She had been reading a book, and drinking a cup of coffee when she began to collapse. Needless to say, it was aContinue reading “Home Base.”
Conversation Cafe Podcast
I will doing some traveling and speaking in the coming months (starting tomorrow!) and will be sharing about the messages in my new book, Brownie Crumbs and Other Life Morsels. But, before the “live” speaking started, I was able to record three podcast interviews- two of which have already been posted. I really enjoyed thisContinue reading “Conversation Cafe Podcast”
So, I released my first book this week.
I’ve carried three babies to term and have given birth to each. And as of Tuesday, I feel as if another pregnancy has resulted in the birth of a 14.7 ounce 6 x 9 inch baby book. Mother and baby are doing well, although the three year gestation of this one was a doozy. But she’sContinue reading “So, I released my first book this week.”
Podcast Interview Link
It’s been quite the day around here with the launch of my first book, Brownie Crumbs. I’ll fill you in on more details later, but for now, I wanted to share this link with you. This is a podcast interview I did with Nancy Carmichael of Logospost.com. I share about several messages from the bookContinue reading “Podcast Interview Link”
It’s My Book’s Birthday!
Today, after three years of labor, my book has been born! (Phew!) I’m so excited to announce that my first book, Brownie Crumbs and Other Life Morsels, is now available on Amazon in paperback, and for the Kindle. You can find it here: Also, I had a book trailer made to give everyone aContinue reading “It’s My Book’s Birthday!”
All the feels.
There’s this phrase that young and cool people say now-a-days. When someone is feeling really emotional, good or bad, they say they have “all the feels.” Because I am not a cool person (and my young-ness is debatable, at a week shy of 39), I don’t often (ever) use this phrase. I tend to be pretty traditional.Continue reading “All the feels.”
My Top 5 Blog Posts from 2016
I’ve spent a little time with Numbers today. We are not close, but we are on friendly terms. We just don’t click the way that Words and I do. But, Numbers proved to be loyal and hardworking once again. He also brought his buddy Statistics to the meeting. He was a little boring for my taste, butContinue reading “My Top 5 Blog Posts from 2016”
