Welcome Author, Camille Eide!

Camille Eide

I’m so excited to welcome one of my long-time writing friends today, Camille Eide. Camille and I have known each other since I moved to the Northwest…before either of us were published authors. We’ve cheered each other on through lots of rough drafts, writers conferences, and rejections. She’s an amazing lady, and I’m thrilled to … Read More

Welcome Author, Laura Frantz!

LOVE'S FORTUNE

Welcome to my sweet Revell buddy, Laura Frantz! She’s also a fellow Pacific Northwesterner, though she lives in the rainforest part of the state (our weather is balmy and sunny compared to her neck of the woods). Thanks for visiting, Laura! How do you know Mesu? I first met Mesu at an ACFW conference and … Read More

Welcome Author, Dan Walsh!

When Night Comes

This December, I wanted to do something a little different for my blog buddies. I wanted to pass on a special gift to you that the Lord has blessed me with over the past seven years. Authors–four of them–who I respect, admire, and appreciate their friendship, have graciously agreed to answer a few interview questions and tell you about a recent … Read More

Know Thyself—Eeeek!

know thyself

I don’t know about you, but the older I get the harder it is to recognize the woman in the mirror. I still feel sixteen on the inside, but as soon as my feet hit the floor in the morning…my body says I’m fifty and climbing. That first look in the mirror each day is … Read More

Stillness in the Chaos

chaos

Have you ever been involved in a car accident? What about a tornado or earthquake? There’s a breathless moment immediately after the destruction when all falls silent…nothing moves. Then the mind begins to spin, and the emotions kick in. If other people are involved, interactions unfold—good or bad. I want to talk about that split … Read More

A soft breath of wind

I’m so excited to introduce my sweet friend, Roseanna White. This special gal endorsed my second book for me, and we’ve been long-distance friends for years. I love her passion for the Lord and her AMAZING writing skill. I have no idea how she juggles a hubby, kids, homeschooling, writing, marketing, and a hundred other things, … Read More

Unpredictable—the Worst Label

unpredictable

Probably most you know we recently adopted a dog, Theo, from our local humane shelter. Theo was our second rescue dog, a 3-year-old American bulldog mix, and he was a love. He was brought into the shelter as a stray with no history, but during his two months of observation at the shelter, he showed … Read More

The Reasons We Celebrate

celebrate

m4s0n501 Today is Halloween, but I’m not going to celebrate it or curse it. Most Christians have an opinion on this controversial subject, and I’ve lived on both sides. When I was in second grade, my family made the decision not to celebrate Halloween. Now, this was back in the days before “harvest parties” were … Read More

Embracing Eventually

boy & peas

When you must eat something you don’t like, do you eat it first or save it ‘til last? I’m an eat-it-first kind of gal. If I see a hard thing on the horizon, I get through it as quickly as possible. A chilly swimming pool? I dive in! Unavoidable mud puddle? I slog through! Why … Read More

Writing Lesson from My Grand-Daughter

I visited my Atlanta grandkids back in June. Two of those darling grand-daughters (Emilie and Audrey) I usually see only once a year, and I swear they grow a foot each time I see them! I love their creativity and watching them grow from baby dolls to tea parties to playing school. This year, while Audie … Read More
