Fear

Fear

Fear is an insidious thing. Sometimes it can be subtle, creeping up on us unawares. Or it can be an ‘in-your-face’ experience, something frightening we’ve faced and somehow never seem to be able to forget. Or, it can be completely senseless, based on nothing more than our fanciful minds.  “For God has not given us […]

The B-I-B-L-E

The B-I-B-L-E “The B-I-B-L-E, yes that’s the Book for me, I stand alone on the Word of God, the B-I-B-L-E!” How many of you remember singing that little chorus in Sunday school? You stood, or sat, singing for all you’re worth with bright, happy faces. The Bible. The Word of God. I’ve had many Bibles […]

My Words Sound Better …

My Words Sound Better …

… because I’m the world’s worst conversationalist. True, unfortunately. As a teen in the 1950’s — remember the TV show Happy Days (1974-1984)? You know, Fonzie and the gang? Well, they really nailed those day’s. Cashmere sweaters, saddle-shoes, duck-tail haircuts, leather jackets, rolled-up sleeves and rolled-down socks, poodle skirts and crinolines  … Only that wasn’t my scene. […]

Setting the Mood

Setting the Mood

Setting the Mood  ambiance: n. The special atmosphere or mood created by a particular environment. When writing fiction, every scene, every interaction between characters, every descriptive paragraph needs to portray a certain ambiance. In order to write these things effectively, we have to be able to “feel” the mood, don’t you think? So, let’s explore […]

Road Trips

Road Trips

Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. When I was a child, road trips with my dad were always … interesting. As long as he let Mom navigate from the passenger side with a map, things were just fine. But there were times when he ignored her directions. […]

How Does Your [Writers] Garden Grow?

Are you, like me, dealing with a bad case of spring fever? Although spring ‘officially’ arrived over a month ago, we here in NW Wisconsin … well … we have roughly six months of winter, and  everything else crammed into the next six months. Anyway, this is the time of year when many folks are […]

Worry is a Verb

Worry is a Verb

“Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” [Matthew 6:27] Jesus spoke these words during His Sermon on the Mount in Matthew, chapters 5,6, and 7. This is where He tells us not to worry about our lives; what to eat, what to drink, or what we will wear. He points […]

Prayer and Praying

NOTE: The below is an adaptation of a document I wrote for my late husband back in 1996—a baby Christian at the time—when he was seeking to know more about my faith and beliefs. For some reason, I felt led to share it here today. ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ “Oh, God,” you hear someone say. […]
