It’s been a whole month since I saw my people face-to-face. This conference--the only Christian Speculative Fiction Writers Conference of its kind--is definitely the highlight of my year. Last year I flew to Reno, this year it was St. Louis. I think it's safe to say, this thing could be held in Tokyo and I'd… Continue reading Realm Makers 2018: Finding my Tribe
Hey there. It's me. Yes, the really real me. I am here. Which is different because I haven't been here much lately, I will admit. There are so many different reasons, that I haven't been (and still am totally not) sure where to begin. So I'll just ramble for a minute and maybe some of you… Continue reading not all those who wander are lost…
It's been a while since I've given an update on our journey across America. In fact, it's been a full ten months since I wrote the last blog post. (You can find that here.) I know many of you have been wondering, "What about Hawaii?", "When will they get to Hawaii?" And to be honest? We were… Continue reading Our Journey through the Desert and Back Again
This post will be a change from the ordinary, as it doesn't have anything to do with writing or reading. But it does have to do with books, which is the next best thing, amiright? So, recently I won a prize basket through our local library which included the most unique gift I'd received in… Continue reading The Art of Books
Just be brave. These three little words seem to have become my mantra, of late. For those that have been following our Big Fat Adventure to Hawaii, we have finally made it through the first leg of our journey there. We've landed in a suburb of Phoenix, AZ and will be here for an unknown… Continue reading Just be brave.
Three weeks. That is how long we have left to live in our little town of Lititz. If you've been following my previous posts about this bigger than big plan that God has laid on our hearts (which you can find here, here and here) you will know that in less than a month, my… Continue reading Doors.
Today is April 2. That means May is less than a month away. Our departure date to move across the country is supposed to be sometime in May. And we still don't have a job, or a place to live, or even a destination. Talk about scary. Let's go back to the beginning... Five years… Continue reading the same faith
re-lent-less: adj. oppressively constant; incessant. I did not want to go to the gym and exercise this morning. The past seven days have been less than stellar, I have a mound of work to do and a sick child at home. Things have been so busy, that I missed getting there yesterday and the day… Continue reading Be relentless.
It's no secret that I love to read. As a child, I would beg to accompany my mom when she went to the mall - not to visit the toy store or a clothing store - but because my favorite place on earth was the bookstore! I distinctly remember jumping for joy whenever a new… Continue reading When you have… reader’s block?
A while ago (a very, very long while ago) I posted about a bigger than big decision our family had come to: our move to Hawaii! Since that time, many of you have asked how plans are going, and more importantly, WHEN it will happen?! Here's an update on the process and what God is doing… Continue reading What about Hawaii?
