"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

Pride...and Humility

Things don't always work out the way we think - even if we are doing good things for the Lord. And sometimes, this can be frustrating and confusing. There are several reasons for this - but one that perhaps you haven't considered.


I'm over at the devotional blog Jewels of Encouragement today, talking a bit about it. Hope you'll stop by and see my theory about it - related to Pride and Humility.

Best! Vacation! Ever!




With just a few weeks left until school starts, it's fun to look back on the highlights of the season. For our family, our vacation "up north" was definitely one of them.

The Barn Door

I'm over at the Midwest blog The Barn Door today, sharing a few thoughts - and more than a few pictures - from our four-day vacation. Stop by and see my family as we enjoy things on, under, around, and near The Bridge
