Mirth and Music Monday – Aug 15th

  Though it’s Mirth and Music Monday, you will probably listen to this next song and wonder WHY would I choose this one. I am choosing to play this song because, for me, this song is extremely encouraging. Life is hard, and this song doesn’t deny that. It encourages us to give our worries to GodContinue reading “Mirth and Music Monday – Aug 15th”

Positive happenings #6: Bible verses, politics, music

  The last week of June and the first week of July were rather terrible. Ugh. Sick children, and other immediate family stuff.

WIPpet Wednesday – March 30

If you’re unfamiliar with WIPpet Wednesday, it’s a great weekly meme hosted by Emily Witt where authors can share excerpts from Works in Progress.

Christian fiction Friday

I know it’s Saturday. Posting my excerpt a bit late this week. 🙂 This scene is from chapter 10 in my first MS Second Chances. This time, no context.

He kissedContinue reading “Christian fiction Friday”

Mirth and Music Monday

I’ll tell you a secret. My favorite poems and songs are those that tell a story. Sure, I appreciate plenty of poems and stories that are more symbolic or figurative, but I have always been drawn to poems and songs that actually have a plot, if that makes any sense.
