From the Desert

I always look forward to the new year. Everything is fresh and clean, and I usually feel the fullness of hope at a chance to start again. To get right all the things I got wrong last year, to accomplish more, to make a bigger difference in the world around me. And of course, to [...]

Sleeper Posts: My All Time Favorites You Might Have Missed

January 14, 2013 by  
Filed under Blog, Craft, Encouragement, Faith, Interruptions

These posts are what I call sleepers. Not for the fact that they received unexpected recognition like the definition says, but rather they are posts I feel speak to my writing brand “Always Real, Sometimes Raw, Definitely Redemptive,”  yet for some reason, they didn’t get a lot of attention, comments, or discussion. I think the [...]

Change Your Mind

Filed under Blog, God First

As I started to write this post, the words I typed felt strangely familiar under my fingertips. I checked, and sure enough, I wrote them before in this space last year, which just goes to show that it takes more than a new year to change a person’s mind! The most important change I could [...]

The opening line of Anne Lamott’s writing memoir Bird by Bird states, “The very first thing I tell my new students on the first day of a workshop is that good writing is about telling the truth.” As a Christian writer, I often wonder at how truth in fiction is achieved. After studying the parable [...]

When God Stops by

September 9, 2012 by  
Filed under Blog, Faith, Family, God First

I confess: I don’t always go to church. Like today, the morning after a jam-packed Lindy Hop weekend with lots of fun, friends, and busyness. Not only is my body tired and achy, but my soul wants quiet…peace. And sometimes that is found at home…alone. So when I awoke this morning, I tended to my [...]
