Lessons from the Physical Applied to Prayer

This week my marketing manager called from Winepress. We were able to discuss some future marketing ideas, endorsement possibilities, and my interview questionnaire. After our chat on the phone, I wondered if a start up package for publicity from Winepress was enough marketing service to get the book off the ground and out to the public. Briefly, I …

Don’t Judge a Book By It’s Cover ?

We have all heard the saying, “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover,” but I am seeing in my case as a writer, you have too!!! My publisher emailed an initial idea to view for my cover. I was awestruck by what they had designed. It was exactly what I requested, giving me a sense of God’s invitation to “Come to the Throne …

Re-entry into the Real World

Yesterday morning was filled with great anticipation, as all three of my children were returning home from camp. I left early to go pick up the girls.

What else would I be doing since God provided a week with no kids at home during the summer? …

At a young age, I remember my mom dragging my three brothers and me to church every Sunday while my dad went to play golf. When I became a teenager, my dad went through a radical change. He had given …

Simply Trusting

As I have shared before in my blog, making decisions takes me awhile and it is not my greatest strength. As I delve further into the writing process, I am faced with decisions constantly. God sure has a funny sense of humor and has placed me in just the right position where I must be stretched to grow and rely on Him for my every decision! This week …
