Love Always Wins

0

Love Always Wins As human beings We often let Our emotions Get the best of us We bicker And fight Get jealous And envious Are disappointed And filled with regret How easily we forget That the Supreme Being Has created us in His image Infused with His qualities His spirit and His grace And that in the end No matter […]

The Power of Three

0

Any children’s author worth their weight knows that three is the magic number. With children, it’s all about the repetition. With adults, it’s more often about being able to sum something up succinctly while still getting your point across. It may also have something to do with memory and attention span – ever tried to remember more than three things […]

The Upside Of Being A Writer

0

Last fall, I was smart enough to attend the SCBWI Eastern Pa Fall Fest, a two-day event focusing solely on writing for children. Day one was filled with keynote speakers (Bryan Collier’s words completely changed my outlook on why I write, but that’s another article for another time) and workshops to help advance us all in the craft of writing for […]

Countdown to 2015

0

  The past few months have brought with them some positive changes in both my personal and professional life, so rather than make a new set of resolutions (which would most likely be a repeat of the past few years anyway), I have decided to continue with  my forward momentum into 2015 instead. I will not allow my fear of […]

Failure of Courage

0

  Yesterday I was able to sit with my morning cup of tea and watch Super Soul Sunday as it aired (a rare treat). The guest was Sue Monk Kidd, author of The Secret Life of Bees, so I was particularly interested in hearing what a fellow writer had to say about following her calling. It wasn’t very far into […]

Farewell To Summer

0

It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is the 1st of September, but I guess I can’t really complain. This summer we took two vacations (one with three generations of the Neill clan), spent a few days here and there at the beach with good friends, used our lovely back patio a handful of times (pesky mosquitoes) , and of course, […]

Family Vacation Redefined

0

Vacationing as a single mom with a solo child is like night and day from the old days with six of us in tow. I am now my daughter’s only companion when we hit the highway. We share a mix cd (yes, my car is that old and thankfully her taste in music has evolved), we share a bed, and […]

Zip Me Up Please

0

This past weekend, my daughter and I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of an old childhood friend. For my daughter, this meant a trip to the mall for a new dress (she doesn’t wear dresses, so I don’t buy them unless absolutely necessary). For me, this meant a trip through the back of my closet (I love getting […]

Clean Breaks

0

Clean break – I’ve heard the phrase several times over the past few weeks. Once in my own head and twice from the mouths of two very respected colleagues, which got me to thinking – is there really such a thing? It is truly possible to make a clean break? After some thought, I’m beginning to believe that the answer […]
