"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

Whether it Feels Like it or Not

According to the calendar, spring began on Thursday. But, in some places (Michigan, for example :P), the calendar forgot to tell the weather. But do you know what? That doesn't mean it isn't true.


 I'm over at Jewels of Encouragement today, sharing the spiritual application of this very fact. Come and learn why the season - and believers - are new - believe it or not.

His Most Precious Creation

Michigan is a beautiful state (even when covered in too many feet of snow) - in fact, the entire world is full of beauty - especially the natural stuff - that made by the Creator.

But sunsets and mountains and butterflies aren't the only beautiful, and precious, things He created. I'm over at Internet Cafe Devotions today, talking about another one - His most precious creation. Hope you'll come by :)

Staying in the Light

Light is most definitely a good thing - and God's light is even better. And we are instructed, several times in His Word, to stay in it. But how do we do that? And why is it so important?

I'm over at the devotional blog Jewels of Encouragement today, talking about how to stay in the light - and how to stay OUT of the darkness. Hope you'll stop by and see :)

Shhhh

This has been a tough winter for me. But there are signs it might (emphasis on MIGHT) be getting brighter.

The Barn Door

I'm over at the Midwest group blog The Barn Door today, talking about the possibility of something besides snow on the ground some time. Hope you'll stop by - but don't scare it (or it might go away again!)

God and my Writing Journey

I love to write - it's most definitely a passion of mine. My current focus, as you may or may not know, is children's books. But it isn't my only one :)

How could I NOT love this shirt?

Today, I am over at Kristena Tunstall's blog, sharing my answer to a question she asks a different writer every Friday: How have you seen God work in your writing journey? I hope you will find my response inspiring, informative - and even a little fun. Hope you will stop by!

How have you seen God work in your writing (or other)journey?
