Exact Change

Hey there! I’m finally back from my cross country trip. What an adventure. We saw some pretty interesting things along the way. And, we are now more familiar with our own country. I am incredibly grateful for that. But what I’m most grateful for is the strengthening of our family ties that resulted. My hope and prayer is that it …

Family

Smiling shyly, I type in the words of my next blog. Yes, it’s been over a week. But you know how vacations can be. I’m not on the road at the moment. Actually I’m in Florida visiting family. That’s what this trip was all about—family. Families are amazing entities. The bonds that hold them together are an enigma to me …

Forgotten Dreams

Hello! Nice to be back. I’ve been waiting two days to tell you some pretty cool things that have happened on our cross-country trip. So, I’m going to put the European stories on hold, for just a bit.

Tests & Trials Along with a Few Surprises (part 2)

Hey there and welcome back. I’m sitting in a hotel in Williams, Arizona as I type this. My family and I are on our cross country vacation.

What was God thinking? (part 8)

Hello all! Sorry for the delay. It’s been a really productive week. Got a lot of writing done. Woohoo! What an awesome Saturday. Went to a book signing (no, not mine…but hopefully soon!) and met Brandilyn Collins. What a fun lady! I so enjoyed meeting her, laughing with her, and getting my copies of Stain of Guilt and Dead of …

What was God thinking? (part 7)

My buddy Heather is away, so I don’t have someone reminding me to make a new entry! LOL! Hope she’s having a great time. I know we left on a bit of a down note. Brave soul that she is, Mom got on that plane Monday morning and off we went. I was still clueless as to how to help …

What was God thinking? (part 6)

Hello there! Sorry I delayed again. I’ve got a new writing project that’s keeping me so busy, my head is spinning! Well, needless to say I was pretty confused at this point, but I had a sense of peace about it. I think I was starting to realize I needed to let God take control and back off. That’s a …

What was God thinking? (part 5)

Hi there! Welcome back. Please know that if you are coming back to read my blog, I am so very thankful. My hope is that God will use this to inspire you with His greatness.

What was God thinking? (part 4)

Thank you so much for the comments. They are encouraging and wonderful, like water for a wayworn desert traveler. Oh, before I start, dear hubby clarified that it wasn’t a hurricane, but Tropical Storm Francis. Sorry about that. So, onward we go. Let me tell you, this was one of the most frightening experiences I have ever had. As we …
