A Feast of Words and a Free book

How do you feed your soul? I just returned from a Christian writers conference in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. It was an exhausting, yet exhilarating five days. This conference was a time for making new friends and catching up with old ones. But, it also fed me. This conference fed me spiritually,… Continue reading A Feast of Words and a Free book

God disciplines us for our good

Michael is my youngest and most strong-willed son. Of course, he got that from his father. 🙂 Disciplining him was not easy since I didn’t always understand the ways of this child.
