My Week of Interviews – And Sharing One with You!

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!”

Is It Worth It?

Sometimes I can’t remember if I just put a new coffee pod into my coffee maker, or if the one I’m staring at in puzzlement is the used one from yesterday. Even though I would have had to put the coffee pod there mere moments before, I seem to forget if I actually did it,Continue reading “Is It Worth It?”

Our Marriage Needs a Prefix.

Last night I told my husband that I miss him. He nodded in agreement as he sat beside me. We are together a lot, but our moments of non-distracted, non-exhausted, non-sick, non-stressed, non-necessary, non-rushed, non-interrupted communication are slim. We’d like to add those little nons into our relationship, but they’re elusive little prefixes. We striveContinue reading “Our Marriage Needs a Prefix.”

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!”

In Plenty And In Want.

It was a few tissues and an empty Starbucks cup that tipped me over the edge. They were strewn on the floor around the empty trash can instead of being out by the curb with the rest of the trash that my husband had collected. Didn’t he see he’d dropped it and he really hadn’tContinue reading “In Plenty And In Want.”

Did You See That?

Here I am again trying another Five Minute Friday. This is where I link up at this site with other bloggers and we all write about the same topic for 5 minutes (or so…this one was closer to 10 minutes for me) and then we link up with each other for fun. We are allContinue reading “Did You See That?”

A Pain Around the Neck

Almost every Spring for the majority of our marriage my husband has hosted a fundraising banquet for his local ministry, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. And, being the good wife that I am, I buy him a new tie every year for the event. I know, I’m pretty sweet. What’s more, I don’t just buy any tie,Continue reading “A Pain Around the Neck”

GPS is bad for your marriage.

I am not exaggerating to say that my husband and I have a harmonious relationship. We rarely get to the point of raising our voices with one another or driving each other insane. We are pretty laid back and get along great. However, there is a formula that we’ve discovered in our thirteen years of marriageContinue reading “GPS is bad for your marriage.”

The Dash

April, 2016 This month I will receive my first paycheck in almost 12 years. I started working part-time as a grant writer for a non-profit (FCA.) I’m excited to be able to use writing to help raise money for a ministry that I care about, all while working mostly from home.   The decision forContinue reading “The Dash”
