Imagine a front porch floored with century-old wood in shades of gray, cool to the feet.  One end of the porch is canopied in morning glory vines and a trellis overflowing with ivy, which shelters the veranda from summer’s glistening daybreak and evening’s splash of sunset.  There is a white, suspended wooden swing, jam-packed with cushions of every size and shape, fluffy ones to be hugged. Stack a tall glass with ice cubes, and pour yourself a splash of sweetened blackberry tea from an antique pitcher. Slip your feet from your shoes and curl up in this swing, leaving your cares behind you.

Welcome to this place of solitude where it is my wish you will find comfort and relaxation, where each is free to imagine him or herself in the pages of a story. As you sip the wine-colored liquid and read reflections of love and hope, I freely open the treasures of my heart to you, my friend.

Poor Writer Reject

Announcement: Quitting

Am I a writer? Am I a speaker? Is this my purpose? Is this really what You told me to do? Because where are the results? Where are my readers? Where are my listeners? Should I quit? Why can’t I quit? WHY, Lord, can’t I just quit? I’ve worked hard to rear and homeschool six […]

Honeycomb and the Secrets of Connection

Though I may write in my home office, a solitary space, I need connections with real people, especially other believers and other writers. Have you noticed it’s difficult to find time for both?

Inspirational Words Are A Honeycomb

  I’m an inspirational writer. My words are meant to kindle—rouse. But what does that mean?
