For awhile now, people have been telling me that I should "go public" with my blog. Right now the only way you can find it is through a link on other pages, or if I give you the address. You wouldn't have found me by clicking on "Next Blog".
I have had my reasons for keeping it that way. By nature I am a private person, and I began this blog mainly for people that KNOW me. But I think that maybe it's time.
One of my biggeset cheerleaders is my friend Mary. I met her several years ago at our staff conference (both of our families are missionaries with CAI). When I first met her, my heart recognized a kindred spirit and so we began developing a friendship over the distance. She has been a huge blessing to me.
Mary is a gifted writer, and she has recently published three books. Ordinary Mom, Extraordinary God is a great devotional book that reaches straight into the hearts of women where we feel inadequate in our motherin. Building the Christian Family You Never Had
is an honest and beautiful look at how to parent when your own childhood was less than ideal. And I am dying to read Mary's first novel Watching the Tree Limbs. (I just ordered it, Mary! you'll have to sign it later :) !)
All this to say, that Mary has encouraged me in my writing, which I had left by the fringes of my life for many years.
My hubby is my biggest fan and encourager. Thanks Troy, for believing in me and cheering me on in my writing.
Here goes nothing....or everything...or something.
