The Wait is Over

So...it's been a while since I've posted. From my experience as a mom of 15+ years, we mothers seem to go from one busy season to the next busier season as our children grow, and my blog has taken a backseat to other priorities.

Light in the Dark

And it reminded me of Jesus's words in Matthew 5:14-16, when He says, “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under… Continue reading Light in the Dark

A Little Knit of This and a Little Knit of That

But first, an update! I can now share two more contest results with you: I didn’t win. 😛 After I have a chance to read over my entry for the Guideposts' short story contest and retweak some things (cuz that’s what writers love to do—tweak, tweak, and more tweak), I’ll share it here.

Do I Trust God at His Word?

I mentioned in a previous post that I’ve entered my book in several contests over the last few months. Tinsel in a Tangle was the runner-up in the Selah Awards Debut Novel category (yay!), but I’m still waiting for the calendar months to flip a couple more times to find out the results of the… Continue reading Do I Trust God at His Word?
