Finds for Fridays: March 9

I'm over at the Barn Door today. Weather this week has been crazy (snow one day, 60+ degrees another), but I still know that winter is almost over. How? Check out my post to see. :)  
Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following close to 100 blogs and at least scan them as much as I can. Each week, I'll note and "set aside" some posts that especially speak to me for whatever reason. And each Friday that I am able, I'll share them with you. I hope you'll stop by and read the posts, and maybe even follow the blogs if you aren't already. A win-win, right?

And here they are!

Author Theology by Cynthia Ruchti at the ACFW Blog (about God's control over our writing life/gift/timing)

A Divine Obsession by Edie Melson at The Write Conversation (about the passion to write - beautiful)

Betrayed: But What About Me? By Wanda at The Watered Soul (about where our focus often is - and where is should be)

Three Simple Steps to a Successful Synopsis by Linnette Mullin at Seekerville (just what it says. FABULOUS post!)

Thoughtful About...Calming the Storm by Roseanna White at Writing Roseanna (about God's love of us, and desire for our lack of fear)

Hope you enjoy, and learn from, these posts. I know I did!
