A Beautiful Discovery . . .

One morning, I woke up early, around 5:15, and I didn’t want to fall back asleep for fear I would oversleep. So, after lying there for a while, debating what would keep me awake for the next forty-five minutes, I got up and started writing. And I have done the same every morning since then.Continue reading “A Beautiful Discovery . . .”

Should Christians Continue to Use Social Media?

I’m taking a short break from the Promised Land posts before our release date to share something that has been weighing heavily on my heart lately.

So . . . yeah. Big changes coming to the blogging world. Or at least, my blogging world. 😉 Mainly because I started a new blog (“you wwhhaatt?” That’s what I said. Ask my evil clone.) and this one is going to take a lot of time/research/attention to get off the ground. A NEED TO BREATHE I’d likeContinue reading “Blogging Updates, Changes, and a Party”

It’s Not Enough to Just Survive (a writing update)

Hey, everyone. I’m dropping in to share something I wouldn’t have shared if it hadn’t been getting such a good response from the blogging and social media world. In short, I wrote a guest post recently (which, if you follow my dog training blog, you already know) about dealing with severe food allergies as aContinue reading “It’s Not Enough to Just Survive (a writing update)”
