Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
The other night Chase and I were out playing fetch with Zeke. Chase was chasing Zeke around while Zeke was fetching the ball. It's a fun game that the boys like to play. Sorta like tag, but Zeke is always it! Chase and I were chattering away, when he looked up and noticed that the stars were starting to come out. "Look Mommy," he said, "there's a star!" I asked him if he made a… Continue

As the old saying goes, I was sitting in front of my computer last night, typing, minding my own business when I received the exciting news that my debut novel, Silenced Cry, received honorable mention at the 2008 New York Book Festival.
I heard about the contest late last year and although I was excited about submitting my novel, as the deadline drew near, I began to hesitate. After all, what were the odds of getting noticed among how many other entries, right? Anyway, my entry had… Continue

I’ve lived my entire life in conservative, Republican, tiny-town Midwest USA surrounded by corn-, wheat-, and soybean fields. It’s a strange place indeed for a Liberal Independent to have sprouted. Like Emily Dickenson I’ve never seen a moor and never seen the sea. But I’ve seen plenty of silos, Amish buggies, whitetails, and amber waves of… Continue

I do…sometimes I feel instead of me managing time, time manages me, leaving me more ragged than Raggedy Ann.
But then other people are so the opposite. Let me tell you about my friend, Kimberly. This past week she got her house spic ‘n span for a ministry meeting, stopped by the grocery store for ingredients to prepare goodies for us guests, drove 20 minutes to pick me up, ran upstairs to grab one of the throw pillows from my guest room (which she’s helping me re-decorate—another one… Continue

Lifetime TV’s episode 3 of season 2 of ARMY WIVES appears to have fallen off the back of a truck. It seemed to me as if I were watching a recycled TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL, or at the very least a recycled IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE.
There were no scenes with all four army wives, Joan was missing in action, and her army husband only had scenes of “shooting hoops.” There didn’t seem to be a center for the episode – only a series of vignettes. And, boy, suddenly Roxy’s hair is looking really… Continue

Hello my fellow Book Marketers!
I am sure that you can all relate to the flashy lifestyle of my hometown Detroit, MI and other major cities like it. Well, I wrote a book about it and as I am sure you can imagine it is filled with all of the drama, scandal and action that accompanies a lifestyle based on acquiring material possessions!
The book is in the final stages of publication, but in the meantime it is available for review and pre-order. Check out my website,… Continue

In my book Polka-dot Star Flowers: Real Help for Real People I share my personal life experiences. I go into detail about how I got into some real life messes, and how I got past those experiences. I help people see that joy can be found in our lives no matter what is going on around us- because joy does not come from the outside in, but from the inside out!
Over and over I have people ask how I got brave enough to tell so much about myself- some of it pretty… Continue
