In keeping with the apparent theme of 2020, “Well, that was unexpected!” I have been on a new adventure these last few months. But, unlike a pandemic or murder hornets, this seems to be a good thing!! I’m making Children’s Activity Books! Yes, the quarantine led many of us to try new things. My husbandContinue reading “Well, that was unexpected!”

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.”
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.”
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”
5 Outsider Observations about the 2016 ACFW Conference
Here’s the deal. I write non-fiction. For those of you who slept through Language Arts, or are accountants, that means I write about things based on facts, real events, and real people. Fiction writers, on the other hand, write about things that are imagined, though they may be portrayed in such a way they feelContinue reading “5 Outsider Observations about the 2016 ACFW Conference”
Mullets and Web Widgets.
I got my hair cut on Friday but didn’t expect anyone to notice. It was one of those trims that was healthy for the removal of split ends and getting bangs out of my eyes, but was not meant to change my “look.” I would have been surprised if anyone did comment on the trim.Continue reading “Mullets and Web Widgets.”
