I Can’t Get It Right

  “I told you! Clean this room. I’m going to have an aneurism for heaven’s sake!” God, they never listen. I don’t mean to yell all the time, but they won’t change. No matter the reward system—no matter the work of instilling pride in them for what they own and how to take care of […]

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? Like you, I’m busy as a bee most days, but the internet and social media have afforded new ways for me to […]

Inspirational Words Are A Honeycomb

  I’m an inspirational writer. My words are meant to kindle—rouse. But what does that mean? Sweet and wholesome words may not always change lives, but power-filled, life-generating words have potential for transformation. This morning I pondered the verse, “Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.” (Proverbs 16:24 […]

I’m an Expert

Bet that title made you want to read on. Don’t I sound arrogant? Well, I can assure you, I never wanted to become an expert at so many things. My mini-van wove in and out between semi-trucks, like playing checkers. I’d zoom ahead and a truck would pull into my lane and block me. I’d […]

My giant today wanted to rob me of creativity. How about you? Are you a melancholy, artistic type, and your productivity seems often hinged on a […]

I’m Hiding

Been looking for me? Just like Gideon, I’ve been hiding out. My enemies are enormous and devouring. Those who hear the whispers of God know that when we follow the Lord’s directives, we often have a target pasted on our foreheads. This morning God whispers to me; “Cease your struggle, Ann.” You see, I’ve been […]

Author Ron Smith MD, A Mere Christian

What a pleasure to have an old and dear friend with me today. Ron and I grew up in the same community and attended the same high school. His wife, Stacy Morris, was in my graduating class. When our children were very small, we lived in another small Arkansas town with Ron and Stacy. Both of […]

Interview with Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas Author Rose Johnson, God Me and Sweet Ice Tea

My guest today is devotional writer, Rose Chandler Johnson. I was introduced to God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea before I actually met Rose on Facebook. Her thoughts inspired me then, but they especially do now that I’ve spent time with her. Would you like a chance to win a copy of God Me and […]
