  Teachers are my people. When I was a little girl, I played nonstop with a blackboard and chalk, and as an adult, I spent nine years teaching middle and high school English. I know teachers, and I love teachers. For that very reason, I have created something exclusively for anyone working in a school, and I am giving it away FOR FREE! Teachers need encouragement, so I have written a week's worth of devotions to inspire them and motivate them in the midst of their difficult jobs. To receive the devotions directly to your inbox, simply click on this link! Be sure to enter the email address where you wish to receive them. You'll get the first email Monday, September 19th, and they will continue throughout the week! Feel free to share this post with any teachers you know. Let's spread a positive message throughout our schools!  ...


  It's finally here! My very own website! After weeks of hard work behind the scenes, my amazingly selfless friend has created this beautiful website as a home for my writing, and I am blown away by what he did. Isn't it great to have technological friends? If it were up to me, I'd be handwriting letters to each of you and mailing them through the postal service. :) This website will still house my blog, and you can also find old posts from my original blog. It will also be the hub for all of my writing activity. You'll find the latest information on what I'm working on and exclusive material you won't find anywhere else! (If you look to the right at the top of this page, you'll find a spot where you can subscribe via email and get a free gift, too!) I'm so excited to have this new virtual home, and I'm praying it will be a source of encouragement to you as you enjoy your journey!...


The obligatory answer to the question "How are you?" is understood to be "Fine."

Maybe a "Good, how are you?" or sometimes an "I'm OK, thanks."

Nobody really expects (or desires) for you to say, "Well, truthfully, everything stinks right now. My kids are driving me nuts, my husband and I can't seem to get on the same page intimately, and I kind of want to punch my coworker in the face."

If we said such things, we'd get a whole lot more than we bargained for, and truthfully, we don't need to share that much with acquaintances who innocently ask how we are...


I wanted so badly to do it right. Whatever the Christian life looked like, I wanted to represent it well.

A people-pleaser by nature with perfectionist tendencies, I knew that if I could just find the hidden list of do’s and don’ts, I’d be set. I’d memorize it, practice it, and ace the Christian test.

I would make Jesus, and those around me watching, proud...
