Life is too precious to spend all of it rushing around. Isn’t that why you pick up a good book, gaze out the window, or pause to enjoy the daisies? I’ve prayed for years to learn to write with beauty and offer a little sunshine in the lives of those who pick up my work. I hope my writing helps you take a deep breath and embrace the important things in life—the love of friends and family, the beauty of wildflowers, a moment of gratitude to the Creator.
I’m excited to tell you about my books and want to connect with you through my blog, but I also hope this website also becomes a place you return to for snippets of refreshing or reflection. For several years I poured my heart into short devotionals called Soul Scents. They are compiled here by theme in hopes you linger a while and breathe in the fragrance of God’s love and grace. God is also doing a new thing with me–helping me connect the outer and the inner person. I’d love for you to join me at A BENew Journey: Losing Weight Inside and Out.
Part of my story is that I’ve spent the last 21+ years raising four children. We writer/teacher types tend to write what we know—or at least what we’re learning! From this journey came articles on parenting and homeschooling.
Writers tend to be readers, so I share about great books every Fiction Friday on my blog.
But, of course a website is about relationship as much as anything. I hope you’ll browse the fun stuff under my about button, meet my family, and browse my faith journey. I also blog about once a week about real life. I look forward to interacting with you there.
