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
This started out as a Facebook post, but I changed my mind in the end. Did I take the coward’s way out? Maybe (although I did link this to my home page). FB is such a volatile place these days, I don’t want to add to it. But does that mean I stay completely silent?… Continue reading What Do We Expect?
Welcome to 2018! Have you jumped aboard the bandwagon and chosen your word for this year yet? Last year, I chose the word purposeful, because I knew I had to be just that in how I used my time to get things accomplished between all the writing-related deadlines I had on my plate. Well, I… Continue reading Joy in Discipline?
I recently celebrated my 41st birthday, and as I reflect over a year that began with me stumbling into a writer’s desert, it looks like I might finish it out emerging onto fertile grasses. All glory to God, who never left my side through the dry and barren wasteland. Here are some of the things… Continue reading From Deserts to Green Pastures

Hi, everybody! Tinsel Kuchler here, to celebrate the release of Laurie’s book, Tinsel in a Tangle. Today, Laurie’s being highlighted on Kelsey Gillespy’s blog, but she asked me to read something for all of you, so here goes… [Picks up sheet of paper and clears throat] “Starting today, everyone who has access to Kindles and Nooks… Continue reading It’s Book Release Day!
I’ve been on an emotional roller coaster these last few weeks and months. I must be rising toward the peak today, because I feel excited and jubilant, though I couldn’t tell you why. Nothing has physically changed in my life. My circumstances haven’t changed. But my view of some things is slowly changing. Maybe that’s… Continue reading Getting Off This Roller Coaster
