It All Started 3 Years Ago
Three years ago today I published my very first blog post. I had no idea what I was doing. I dipped my little toe in the blogging world on April 24, 2018. I did not know where to start. I did not know what to write. But I knew I had to do it. After praying about it for several days an idea came to mind. I wrote about how unqualified I am to write.
The reason I started this blog was because of my children’s book, Joey Flynn’s Extraordinary Tale. I never wanted to be a writer. I had zero writing dreams or desires. Writing was nowhere on my radar, but God had a different plan.
Why Did I Write A Children’s Book?
I am terrible about promoting my book. There is a link on my home page and that’s about it for self promotion. I’ve just never been comfortable with pushing my book. If you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber you can get my book for free. Several times a year I give away the Kindle version.
Three years goes by fast. A lot has happened in these brief years. I have learned a lot about my faith, and about myself. The first year of my little blog, I hardly wrote. Maybe once or twice a month. I bumped it up the second year. Now, I try to write a weekly post. It doesn’t always happen and sometimes I just don’t want to write.
To stay motivated to keep writing, I try and think of just one person. That maybe, just maybe, one person will read my post and be encouraged. My goal is the same today as it was in the beginning. Encouragement for the Believer, and plant seeds of faith for the Non-Believer.
I want to be as honest as possible about my own struggles, weaknesses, and triumphs. When I share parts of my life I pray that someone sees they are not alone. Christians are real people, with real issues, with real hope because of Jesus.
I just want to say “Thank you!” to each of you. Thank you for reading, following, and supporting my little blog. It’s my tiny corner of the world, so thanks for hanging out with me. Each of you are a blessing to me.
I’m always happy to pray for you. Please don’t hesitate to share your prayer requests with me. It’s a privilege to pray. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I love you guys.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. Ephesians 2:20, NASB

I hope and pray you are doing well. Just wanted to pass along my recent author interview. My friend and fellow author, Sharon K. Connell, included me in her monthly newsletter. Sharon’s newsletter, Novel Thoughts, is filled with all sorts of good information like poetry, art, writing tips, funny stories and recipes. One of my recipes is also included in July’s newsletter. So, I’m very blessed to have such an opportunity.
Sharon is an accomplished author with quite a few books to her name. Her genre is Christian Romance Suspense. The links to her books are included in Novel Thoughts.
Please go to the link and read all the great content Sharon has in her newsletter. Also, you can read my interview and find out about my writing process, and a few other fun facts about me.

Black Friday Giveaway
I’m giving away a copy of my book Joey Flynn’s Extraordinary Tale and I want that winner to be you! It’s my debut Middle Grade Novel. Perfect for ages 8 and up. Both kids and adults have loved my little book. It’s a fun, adventurous story that happens to have a deeper message. To trust God.
But that’s not all. I’m giving away a T-shirt too! As you can see from the picture, the T-shirt has the theme of the book. It’s an adult size medium, and is unisex. It would easily fit an older child or small adult. My husband’s friend Adrien made these T-shirts for me last year, and my friend Nick designed them. The blue is actually much more vibrant than the picture is showing.
