truth exitWhat I love most about writing:

I can do it in my pajamas… maybe some flip flops…with no makeup on… bed-head… and not scare anybody!  Writing is one of  my passions, rivaled only by God, motherhood and chocolate. Writing allows me to indulge in my favorite past time–good conversation with interesting people who likely are way smarter than I.

I have always been passionate about being informed about what’s going on in the world, and there are some incredibly important things going on not only in our country, but in the world. Many people are unaware of many of the implications. I will talk about everything from Christianity and politics, to education, the supernatural, and safety.  It’s difficult for the average person to spend the time researching, gathering all of the details, separating the truth from fiction.  I love doing all of these things, putting the pieces of the puzzle together and sharing what I learned. I feel compelled at this point in my life to move from casual conversations with my friends to serious writing to help others get it all in one place. I am very visible on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, so please check it out.  A converstion, however, is not one-sided–I need  you to break your silence and join me.

I make these promises to you:

  • I will present resources to back up what I share 
  • I will celebrate freedom of speech and respect the opinions of others
  • I will always encourage you to bring new resources and new information to the table

I ask the same from you.

So, please, my friend…grab a cup of something, pull up a chair, and let’s talk about what the heck is going on!

  1. You are so right, writing is a blessing! I can’t help but feel like writing in a journal is way different than writing in a blog online. How long have you been blogging? Any tips on how to become a better blogger? Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Amy,
      Thank you for visiting and chatting! :-)
      To answer your questions, I have been blogging since April of this year, for all the reasons on my about page. I love my gift of writing–God was good to me. Tips? I’ll give you my top three: 1. write about what you are passionate about. 2. keep it simple 3. proofread and edit. Let your blog be an extension of you. We all have our own personalities, visible in different ways. While it is helpful to look at other good blogs, be yourself on yours. I write the way I think and the way I would speak about the topic. You are the only you–let the world get to know you. Not all will like or agree, and that’s ok. The conversation is what is important :-)

  2. Thank you for the girl scout post… wow. I am a mother of boys – thank goodness I don’t know what I’d do if I had girls in the scouts. I am not loving the common core, and don’t like how gov’t is trying to make $ off my children. What to do? Not sure… but I am praying for our children’s future for sure.

    • Hi, KP. Thank you for your comment. I was dumbfounded when I ran across this information about the Girl Scouts–what happened to the wholesome group that so aptly personified America and her values? KP, praying is the most powerful thing you can do, and thank you. If you decide you want to do anything else, letters to our state government and sharing information with other parents is a great action item. Let me know if you want some ideas or direction. In the meantime, keep learning and keep fighting!

  3. Yes, that is exactly what I like about writing, too. Not to mention, there is no “competition” (until trying to publish, at least). It’s just the writer and the words, left alone by the rest of the world.

    Cheers to you,
    Courtney Hosny

  4. Well, this didn’t disappoint, either. I am retiring in one week, so I’ll be able to experience even more pajama writing — well, until my wife has me go out and gut the garage.

      • Hi Amy,being only 67 years “young” I always love to read and write,did come by a “mistake” to your blog,and I am total newbie to computer/internet stuff,just learning the basics,as I have retired I am thinking more and more of helping others to discover the seeds of greatness that God had planted in each one of us,just waiting for our discovery.It looks as you have discovered yours,wishing you all the very best.Ivan
