Thankful memories and a gift to you. #thanksgiving
The above words came to me as I was praying last week about the mid-term elections. 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
After I created my snowman phone carrier a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but think about what I could make for the interim period between the warm, summer days that we've left behind here in MT and the Christmas season that--aside from me--no one wants to be reminded of quite yet. 😉 I browsed… Continue reading Some Halloween Fun…
I'm part of a small group of published and pre-published writers through ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers), and we recently started a group blog called Storytellersquad.com, where I will be contributing a post about once a month. Today is my first day over there—and it's also my book birthday! *throws confetti* To celebrate, I'm giving away… Continue reading Celebrate Good Times…With a Giveaway
Twenty years ago, I spent the summer before my senior year of college working with missionaries in Austria, after which I traveled to Heidelberg, Germany, where I studied for a semester at the university. God asked something of me during that time that has had a long-lasting impact on my life. It's His question--and the… Continue reading Too Much To Ask
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. A part… Continue reading A Little Knit of This and a Little Knit of That
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?
In early May, Hubby traveled back to New England to visit with his folks and work on a blueberry "fort" for his mom--dang those pesky birds! I don't typically look forward to him leaving, but this time I could hardly wait to drive him to the airport. I had plans to work on a project… Continue reading Mod Podge Makeover
Just had to share my exciting news. So, I've entered a few book contests this year, and while the outcomes of most are still a ways off (I won't find out how I did in one until next spring!), today my heart leaped in my chest when I found an email with the word "contest" in… Continue reading Tinsel’s a Finalist!
As I write this, my daughters and I are visiting relatives in MA during my girls’ Montana spring break. We’re nearing the final few days, and I’m trying not to blink. Whenever I go on a trip (heck, sometimes when Hubby just drives us to church), one of my must-haves is some kind of knitting… Continue reading A Little Bit of Knit
