Let’s Submit!

Lately, I have been working on a new story.  Many of you know that when I start to make plans to self-publish a visualized children’s story, I first tell it myself.  Then after I “test drive” the continued story in some camp or vacation Bible school, it might end up...

He Has the Grace

He Has the Grace

Guest Post:  Abigail Hamilton It probably was a week or two before my junior or senior year. My wisdom teeth had just gotten removed, and I was lying in the recliner, feeling very groggy. School was about to start. I lay there in the dark living room crying out to God...

Respect

Respect

I have lived behind my church for twenty-three years.  I remember one summer, years ago, driving past my church. There were the police…and there were my pastor and his wife also!  I immediately stopped to find out what was going on.  They explained to me that the...

Wading in Drum Creek

Wading in Drum Creek

Years ago, I went on a Touching Lives for Christ trip.  They taught us not to complain.  Sometimes, one of the young people would catch themselves.  “My!  It’s hot today,” someone said before they hurriedly added, “but I really like it that way!”  Even though I don’t...

The Appointment

The Appointment

My husband Todd has taken blood pressure medicine for many years.  This year as school as been winding down, he has felt like he is going in multiple directions.  In the middle of all his busyness, he realized that he ran out of his blood pressure medicine.   He...

What I Know

What I Know

I’m not fabulous at making up stories, but I did my best when my children were young. I would lie next to them and make up cowboy stories, detective stories, and more. Of course, my children were the stars in these stories. There was a character who always captured...

Lee’s Phone Is Lost

Lee’s Phone Is Lost

Last week I got a chance to go to the annual Interchurch Holiness Convention in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Many times, this has been a highlight in my year and a priority in my life. This year, most of my family could not go with me. It was just my daughter Abigail and me...

100 Ways

100 Ways

Years ago, Dathan Wade, one of the young boys in my church, had a problem. His class was going to walk up town and watch a movie, supposedly with a religious theme. Short of calling the school and telling them he couldn’t go and thereby making a spectacle out of him,...
