As an author, a perk of my job is reading. I know. Tough gig. But the good news is that I feel it’s my duty to share the book love with you, my friends.

WHY EASTER IS PERSONAL

Easter is almost upon us, friends! This most precious time of year in the Christian calendar when we gather to remember the death and resurrection of our Jesus… perhaps as part of a huge congregation or maybe more privately in our own way.

But before I forget the writerly morning sickness completely, allow me to encourage your heart and inspire your dreams as I share the story of how The Glass Bottom Boat was finally launched…

HOW TO CHOOSE TO LOVE YOUR SPOUSE DAILY

Are you a fan of Valentine’s Day? I’m all for celebrating love any time of the year with romantic trips (hello PARIS!), special dinners, and sentimental gifts… but what about love on a regular Tuesday morning? How are we doing in real life rather than on the social media highlight reel? How do we love our spouse well on the daily? Friend, grab something warm to drink on this chilly winter’s day and let’s chat about what happens after the Valentine’s candy is devoured and the sweet card is in the recycling bin…

WHY PARIS IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA!

“This was such a good idea!” I smile and nod to my husband. Yes, yes I have to admit—Paris was one of my better suggestions. As recent empty nesters heading to the UK in January for a long-overdue visit with both our families, I casually tossed around the notion of...

MY “ONE WORD” FOR 2019

So, I’m starting to believe what they say—that the older you get, the faster time flies. 2018 just evaporated into a vapor of celebrations, challenges, and changes galore. And now it’s time to look ahead, to claim my #oneword365, that one word to cling to, ponder, and...

THE GRATITUDE CHRISTMAS LIST
