Jennifer Fromke on Living the Writing Dream

Jennifer Fromke won the 2010 ACFW Genesis Award for Women’s Fiction. That novel, A Familiar Shore, released in March 2012 from Write Integrity Press. When forced to separate from the laptop, Jennifer can be found with her nose in a book, one hand around a latte, and the other hand sometimes stirring something on the stove. […]

I’m taking the day off of “business as usual,” as I hope you all are, but you can still read my guest posts and listen to my podcast from the last few weeks. I made it easy for you to find. Wouldn’t want you to WORK too hard on this labor day! Enjoy family, friends, […]

Story Ideas: While I am Sleeping

Filed under Blog, Craft, Encouragement

Many of my story ideas for my books come while I am sleeping. Dreaming is like watching a movie for me! I dream in plots and stories some time. Other ideas I believe God just pops into my head. Not to sound super spiritual, but it’s true. Some of the stuff I come up with […]

The Good Interruptions

Interruptions are not always bad. Sometimes they’re necessary. Sometimes they’re blessings in disguise. Last week my regularly scheduled post was interrupted by Spring Break. There was really no reason why I couldn’t have posted, I just got off schedule. And getting back on schedule this week left this column empty…again. But I have a good […]

Fighting Through Insecurities to Reach Your Dreams

Every since I can remember I’ve dreamed of being a dancer. I remember watching Flashdance, Footloose, Fame, and all the other fun dancing movies and thinking how much fun it would be to do that. But to achieve that goal would take hard work, discipline and talent. We didn’t have a lot of money growing […]

Resurrect Your Dream Passion for 2012

Our dreams can be like a familiar childhood friend. They’re often something we’ve grown up with and treasured in our hearts since we were little, but for one reason or another we’ve drifted away from. We all go through seasons where our dreams need to be grounded so we can focus on other things in […]

Don’t Let Anyone Steal the Music of Your Soul!

Last weekend I saw the musical Memphis, and I was blown away. The music, the dancing, the story… By the end I was in tears. Sure, the storyline took me on an emotional journey of two star-crossed lovers in Memphis, a segregated, racist city, in the 1950s, a time when blacks and whites didn’t mix. It […]

Dream Killers

Filed under Blog, Encouragement

What’s holding you back from pursuing your dreams? Fear of failure? Lack of direction? Passion without purpose? Defeat and envy? Unsupportive family? Disappointment in the process? Or the fact you don’t have the know-how to take the next leap towards your dreams? I’ve suffered from many of these dream killers at one time or another […]

Sacrificial Moments in a Homeshool Fishing Booth

Filed under Balance, Blog, Encouragement, Family, Homeschooling

Two of my homeschooling friends hosted a Fall Party this weekend. Perfect weather for it, too. We had outdoor games such as a “caramel apple walk”, treasure hunts, egg-and-spoon relays and a picnic-bonfire with a guitar-led sing-along time. At the outset, I found myself with another mom, slightly older than me and a complete stranger, […]
