I don't know what it means to be a Christian writer who doesn't write Christian novels. I don't know if it means anything.
I'm pretty busy. I have a teenaged son. I work full time and I'm also in a master's program. I became active in my church a few months ago and am helping to plan a women's conference. On top of that, today I decided it was a good time to finally learn to cook. Two… Continue reading The Believers Guide to Time Management
Today is Sunday - my favorite day of the week (until about 6pm, when it really sinks in that I have to report to work the next day). Don't get me wrong, I love Saturdays.

Even Jesus said, “Verily I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does… Continue reading The Fear of New Levels
