Dear Reader,

I am so appreciative of your support for this blog. What a joy it is to write and to write for the ultimate purpose of glorifying the Lord. Also, sometimes the words just build up so much that I will explode if there isn't a creative outlet . . . Just keepin' it real.

On a slightly different note, in the future, you may see posts that differ from my usual topics. Perhaps you have already noticed a post or two of that nature already. My partnership with a blogging community has allowed me to vary my topics on occasion, and earn a bit of money in the process. I am excited to expand my networking and introduce you to a different type of writing than what I normally create. It will not be difficult to spot these types of posts. Rest assured, the integrity of the ol' blog will remain intact.


I was disappointed to not be able to review the movie "Goodbye Christopher Robin" before it hit theaters, but there is good news! I have two journals and two canvas cinch sacks (from the movie) to giveaway. That's right, I said, "Two!" If you would like to win one of these two sets (one cinch sack and one journal being a set), please leave a comment below with your favorite Thanksgiving tradition. I will announce the winner on Nov 19, 2017. At that time, I will ask you to email me with your mailing address so I can get those out to you. Excited to read your favorite family traditions for Thanksgiving!


Also coming up is the Wordsowers Christian Writers Convention in late winter/early spring! Wahoo! If you are a writer or even if you just have thought about writing a book, a memoir, or a letter of your experiences to leave to your grandchildren (cough, cough) then you will want to consider attending this conference. It's a smaller organization, with all levels of writers, so there's no need to be intimidated. Some attendees have never written a word and have been to this conference more than once. It's open to all. But it will give you an idea of where to start, how to continue or what to do next no matter where you are in your writing journey.  It's well worth the price of admission, I can tell you. Which is saying quite a bit from this cheapo frugal gal.

My children's book, tentatively titled, "David's Little Donkey" is shaping up nicely and I hope to be able to pitch it to editors and publishers at this convention. Prayers are appreciated!



  1. You are such a blessing to those who know you and those who "read you" :)

    I'm a Winnie the Pooh nut and would love the opportunity to win such a prize! I'm so looking forward to seeing the new Christopher Robin movie :)

  2. Favorite Thanksgiving tradition is making the lefse for the Thanksgiving dinner. Gotta keep that Norwegian part of me going.
