I’m late in posting today. I remembered last night at about 11:00 p.m. Drew and I are on vacation this week, so my mind is blissfully not really here. I decided to write the post in the morning. Normally, my inclination is to get up, make my coffee, than immediately turn on my laptop and … Read more
I’m honored to be guest posting at a new friend’s blog. Nathanael and I have connected through Facebook and have had some good conversations about musical worship. He asked me to share a bit of my story on his blog, and here it is. If you’re here from Nathanael’s blog thanks for stopping by.

The crisp diction of Latin words … Read more

I’m a little behind on sharing this, due to a nasty cough/cold/allergies/”the crud” that I’ve been recovering from. A couple weeks ago, the writing group that I’m a part of released a poetry ebook. FOR FREE. I had the privilege of having a poem published in it. If you’d like to check out the ebook … Read more
