What If…God’s not a Hater?

Posted on

In junior high I took part in a peaceful protest walk against abortion. As we walked quietly through the streets of downtown Phoenix, we prayed, strangers gathered with similar passion.

What If…God said, “Bang!”?

Posted on

We’ve read the account of Creation to our kids many times.  Our oldest is in 6th grade and has gone to private, public, and home school during this time and has also learned about evolution.  And this does not freak me out one bit.  Because we talk about things at home, in the car, at […]

Posted on

It’s ironic, and not, that the prompt for Lisa Jo Baker’s “Five Minute Friday” is “write.” Just write, but be intentional about it… GO: Because today at lunch with a writer friend, who is writing a book with her husband, I asked, “How do you actually write a book on marriage?  Do you guys, like, […]

An Exercise in Writing

Posted on

I’ve been a bratty “writer.”  And by that, I mean, I love writing, I do it when I’m inspired, sometimes I’m inspired when I don’t have access to a computer or even paper, so I “write” in my head, but then it gets lost in my mental cosmos.  But as far as “practicing” I’ve operated […]
