HAPPY NEW YEAR, Y’ALL! 🎉 Did you know that not only is this year 2020—the start of a whole new decade of possibilities—but it’s also *leap* year?? How cool is that? I can’t fully explain *why* but, that just lights a fire in me! And now, one of my goals for this new, fantastic year, is to finish the first draft of my second novel, … Continue reading HAPPY NEW YEAR! A Mighty Welcome to Year 2020!
There she is. My sent-to-production brain baby. I remember when I finished the very first draft… I never imagined it’d get this far. I really didn’t. I had hope, but that was literally all I had. A hope! A wish! Never underestimate hope. When that hope is lit up with the fire of *work* and a refusal to give up, *anything* is possible. And the … Continue reading I Love My Sent-To-Production Brain Baby
***WARNING*** The following is a rather lengthy, rambling speech-thing written by a lunatic about something that really never gets easier to talk about (seriously, I thought I’d be fine… but I’m freaking out) and will probably make people uncomfortable. Proceed of your own free will and choice. So, I’d *thought* I was done with my book, but I wasn’t… and so I finished my 13th … Continue reading A Very Merry Unbirthday to Me!

The following very-true-story was originally written on my UnBirthday last December, as I reflected on one of my most favorite years of my life: It’s December 13th, my 8th unbirthday!!! WOOO! So, let me tell you a story. *ahem* Once upon a … Continue reading Once Upon a Run
Yesterday, I reached day 1,111 consecutive days of at least 1/2 hour of scripture study each day. I am not a perfect person—one unscheduled visit to my home will show you that; you should ask to see my bedroom, where I hide all the laundry that I haven’t put away… on second thought, don’t do that. That’d just be uncomfortable for both of us. But … Continue reading 1,111 Days
Today, I get to talk to you guys about one my all-time favorite parables—The Parable of the Good Samaritan. And when I say it is one of my all-time favorite parables, I mean, it is one of my ALL-TIME favorite parables. To me, this and The Prodigal Son are in a tie for first place, perhaps because I can relate to them both so very completely. … Continue reading Who Is The Good Samaritan?
