Making time. Wouldn’t it be great if we could actually make time? A lot of writers struggle to make time to write. At the very least, we struggle to make the time to write consistently.

My Words Matter
My words matter. It’s a great reminder, because sometimes even the best of us can feel like frauds. Imposter syndrome is real. This reminder, for me, is two-fold, because my goal is to publish Christian fiction. My words matter. But also… My words matter. The message I convey has to honor God and His Word.… Continue reading My Words Matter

One Word 365 (2020)
The purpose of One Word 365 is to put aside the usual New Year’s resolutions that we never seem to keep. Instead, you pick one word.
