Future Posts

As of August 14, 2015, this blog will no longer have this domain address.  I’m not exactly sure what will happen to the blog at that time; if it will revert to the wordpress address or go completely dark.  I’m taking a bit of a different journey for a while and will not be posting here.

The entire reading plan for reading through the bible can be found at http://www.readthebibleforlife.com/.  I encourage those that are reading through the bible this year with me to bookmark that page for future weekly readings after August 14th.  The plan can also be found on my Facebook page (link in the sidebar).  I have scheduled the next few weeks to have posts for that week’s reading to continue to post here.

If you still want to “follow” me, I will still be on Facebook, but I am limiting my time there.  I found that it just pulls me into drama I don’t need or distracts me from what I should be doing.  I will be spending most of my time on Facebook in Creative Bible Study group, encouraging members to add a creative twist to bible study,

My mother and I started talking about my future and my dreams about 5 years ago this month.  I had just given her a story I was writing and asked her to read through it and edit and critique it for me.

Then she got sick.

She still finished reading it and sincerely seemed to enjoy it.  One of our last conversations was about that story.  She asked me what I was going to do with it.  I told her I didn’t know.  She told me to finish it and send it to a publisher.  Instead, I put it away.

I’m pulling it out again and for at least the next year I’m going to begin the process again of writing and trying to get something published.

It’s a big step for me.  It’s not something anyone else in my family has ever done (except my nephew…he does have a little ebook on Amazon).  When people introduce me, they usually explain that I have this great quilting and sewing talent…but that was my mom, my grandmother….or that I am really creative….but that is my daughter.  I love doing those things, but honestly my all time favorite thing to do is read and write stories.

I’ve kind of been expected to carry on the traditions of my ancestors, but I think it’s time in this second half of my life, to make my own.  I’m decluttering my life, literally.  I’m making room for my dreams and I’m filling my world with encouragement and inspiration.  I’m being honest with myself and anyone who cares to listen.  I’m taking the stories in my head and putting them to paper.  I’m going to step out on faith and fear that the stories God has given me are meant to be shared.

I’m not sure how often I will post something, but when I do, I will be using my Scrib account.  You can read some of my early writings and some other things I’ve shared there now.

I look forward to coming back one day and sharing that I’ve been published!
