That infamous group of people everyone raves about, elusive always to myself because let's face it, I am a homebody and I like it. I found myself bringing up this self-diagnosed lack to everyone as the MOVE grew closer. My "people" … Continue reading Christian Friends

For the past few months I've been pondering what eighty-year-old-Kate will be like. I have sat back in amused imagination as I realize she's going to be a bit eccentric and full of stories and comical anecdotes.

My daughter is turning one and I’m wondering … Continue reading 365 Days of Motherhood

I have been writing since I was a child. My tales of woe and joy ranged from hilarious adventures of secret worlds starring my cousins, fantasy stories that would shame Tolkien (I KID!), faery worlds, apocalyptic futures, fan-fiction, non-fiction, science-fiction, the list goes on. I just love to write. HOWEVER, I never called myself a … Continue reading I, the writer.
I was reading the Beattitudes, but was struck by the chapter just after (Matthew 6). Three times those red letters say "then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you".
