Favored with an agent!

By on July 6, 2018

Before I went to the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference this year (my second), I prayed for favor with all the people with whom I would connect. Ephesians 3:20-21 (NKJV) says, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works […]

Widowhood – D is for depression

By on June 12, 2018

DEPRESSION. Do you mind if I say it this way? It sucks. It’s a calamity we were not created to endure (yeah, I called it a calamity). Instead, the Fall (Genesis 3) brought everything that is counter to a life full of health and joy. Sin entered, and so did the big D word—death. We can […]

The Immanuel Effect

By on May 2, 2018

Ever been sick? We all have or will be. Even the healthiest of us gets a sniffle now and then. And the sweetest, best person you know can get cancer. Shoot; that stinks. But you know what’s worse? Getting sick without knowing Immanuel (Jesus). Immanuel means, “God with us.” Think about that. It’s amazing. John […]

Agent! O, agent!

By on April 26, 2018

Bob Hostetler, he did it. He up and rejected my book proposal. Marshall offered to “go Youngstown” on him, but we opted to let him live. 😹 When I saw his email, which arrived less than two weeks after I submitted the book proposal for Someplace to Be Somebody, Marshall Brandon’s memoir, I was excited. “Wow, […]

Book Review: Write His Answer

By on April 17, 2018

 One of the many things writers do besides, well, write, is read books, many books. I’ve read a lot of them on the art and craft of writing as recommended by my favorite authors. It was my non-writing friend, Nan, though, who gave me a copy of Marlene Bagnull’s book, Write His Answer. She gifted […]

Wandering through Widowhood – Weeping

By on

And so we start our journey with the first letter, W, which I have switched to weeping. Best to get past that, right? A hideous wail, one of two. “Lord, I can’t look at myself right now. I don’t want to look at myself ever again.” But I took a quick glance. The mirror revealed features […]

Widowhood

By on November 1, 2017

Widowhood, an unfortunate word that would not have been created had the Fall not taken place (Genesis 3). I’m talking death here. I know, it’s not a happy subject. But let me share with you how the good Lord is bringing me through this devastating loneliness. My prayer is that it helps you scale that mountain […]

The Book Proposal

By on October 18, 2017

I love my brother in the Lord, Marshall Brandon. In addition to his godly walk and numerous examples of continual reliance on the Lord, he makes me laugh. Even in the midst of the place that held him in physical bondage (where we were headed when we snapped this pic), we found reasons to rejoice and, […]
