Dance in Faith. Stand on Holy Ground. Run on Mission for God.

I mentioned previously how I took a big (for me) leap this summer by signing up to be on two different launch teams (I reviewed the first of those books, Holly Gerth's Fierce Hearted, here in case you missed it). The second of those books (actually the first one I signed up for) came out yesterday.… Continue reading Dance in Faith. Stand on Holy Ground. Run on Mission for God.

I’m a Fierce Hearted Woman (and So Are You)

I did a rash thing back a couple of months ago, and that thing was applying to not just one but TWO book launch teams for books coming out in October. Signing up to that first one already felt a little wild and crazy for me, but taking on a second one? Whoa Nelly. Y'all… Continue reading I’m a Fierce Hearted Woman (and So Are You)

The Essentials of Essentialism

Recently, I joined the launch teams for two upcoming books--one by Jess Connely and one by Holley Gerth. I will talk about each of those books in future posts--two different posts, because it wouldn't be fair to make them share--but today I want to talk about the fact that guys, I signed up to two… Continue reading The Essentials of Essentialism

What I’m Reading: June 3, 2016

  I've always been a voracious reader. But there for a while, I fell out of a regular reading habit. Life seemed too busy, and I became convinced that I couldn't make time for reading and writing, and chose to focus on writing. Of course, my writing suffered for that decision, because you can't constantly pour… Continue reading What I’m Reading: June 3, 2016

What I Learned In March

This week I'm doing my first link-up with Emily P. Freeman in which we look back on what we learned in the previous month. This is kind of a doozy because March was a big month for me as far as spiritual healing and growth, which means we're going to get a little vulnerable here.… Continue reading What I Learned In March

The Power of Cliches: Life Lessons from Little House

Not long ago, as the weather turned cold and we started looking forward to the holiday season, my husband and I both started reading the Little House book series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I had found an almost complete set at the used book store, and it seemed like just the sort of thing to… Continue reading The Power of Cliches: Life Lessons from Little House

Book Review: When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes

I originally posted this review in March of 2012. We've recently pulled this book out and started going through it again, mainly because it has a lot of good advice for staying warm in the event that all of these winter storms knock out our power. I stand by my original review -- the info… Continue reading Book Review: When All Hell Breaks Loose: Stuff You Need To Survive When Disaster Strikes

The Dresden Files: Ghost Story

I FINALLY read this book (seriously, y’all, sometimes I almost want to quit writing just so I’ll have more time in my life for reading, which is not easy to come by as it is). It was an enjoyable read, as always, with lots of tugging at the heart strings and wanting to give Harry… Continue reading The Dresden Files: Ghost Story

How George R. R. Martin Killed My Novel (except not really)

This is my least favorite time of year. Strike that -- it's my second least favorite, behind those long dreary (and occasionally icy) weeks of winter when the holidays are done and you just want it to be spring already. Now the summer holidays are done and I just want it to be fall already,… Continue reading How George R. R. Martin Killed My Novel (except not really)
