Wife, mother, homeschooler, and aspiring writer of inspirational romance. I try to do it all in a way that glorifies my Lord Jesus. Why Fingerprints? God is at work in my life. I am a lump of clay and his fingerprints are on me as he shapes me into the woman he wants me to be. But I also want to leave fingerprints in others lives. So many mentors, teachers, and friends have left fingerprints in

How should i pray?
Lately, I have been wrestling with prayer. I want to be a great prayer warrior. I want my prayers to change the world. But how? In my devotional today in Stream of the Desert by L. B. Cowman, which I highly recommend for a daily reading, there was a quote that seemed to be the […]...
Another year… another birthday
Yesterday I turned 39. One year until I am 40. I have officially become the age where half of the people I meet will think – Wow, you’re old. While the other half think – You are still so young. And the reality is, they are both right. Thirty nine years. Even if I live […]...
Sunday was the first day of Advent. Did you celebrate? Advent is traditionally celebrated on the four Sundays before Christmas with five candles. One candle is lit the first Sunday, two the second, and so on until finally Christmas Eve all candles are lit. I love this tradition for several reasons...
Turkey day is upon us: food, parades, football, family, shopping and for some Christmas decorating. But with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season it is easy to offer a quick thanks before the meal and forget how thankful we are and to whom we are to thankful. So here are a few verses...
A morning prayer
Do you struggle with the right words to pray sometimes? I know I do and this Psalm out of The Message is one great way that I have found to focus my heart and mind to start the day. Write it on an index card and read it every morning! Psalm 119:169-176 Let my cry […]...
People often talk about perfect matches like macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, or salty and sweet. But what about terrible combinations – like for me today a crayon and the clothes dryer. As I WD40ed my clothes trying to salvage some of my husband’s work shirts, I thought about...
Obedience seems so simple when I am asking it of my children. I instruct – they listen. Right? However, it seems a lot trickier when I am the child and God is doing the asking. A few months ago I was really struggling with obedience to God with a particular issue. I clearly knew what […]...
Living with pollyanna
We can learn a lot from our kids. My daughter has a strong case of Pollyanna-ism. Not all the time – believe me when I say she can have her grumpy moments but she never ceases to amaze me with her sweet disposition and positive outlook when I think she has every right to be […]...
Coffee – it’s my happy place
I have like the smell of coffee for as long as I can remember but it took some time for the taste to grow on me. But for years I still only drank it on occasion during parties and such. I never understood how or why people NEEDED it. I made it through college, grad […]...
Biggest revelation for me to date…
So what was my great discovery? Before I get to that – let’s talk reading. When did I fall in love with reading? About eight years ago. I was nearly thirty and on bed rest with my first child and before wifi I had limited options. So, I decided to read. Before this time, I […]...
Why am i blogging?
As I start my third week of blogging, I am reminded why I decided to join this part of social media. The world is changing. I can choose to change with it or not. But ignoring it is no longer an option. When I joined Facebook five years ago, a friend told me it was […]...
Writing blog tour
Today’s post is a part of the “Writing Blog Tour”. I was invited by good friend and one of my very first writer friends Dawn Crandall. She has her first three books coming out over the next year and I couldn’t be more excited for her. You can find about her at...
I am a mess
I am not a failure. I am a mess, a beautiful mess. I am God’s master piece. (Rough Quote from the movie) I am not sure when I have enjoyed a movie more than I did Mom’s Night Out. The script: excellent (laughed so hard I cried). Acting: top notch (I mean Samwise Gamgee is in […]...
10 loads of laundry – really?
I have a confession. I just folded ten loads of laundry. How did I get so far behind? I could blame sickness, I could blame balancing the new school schedule, I could blame that life is just too busy. All that is true but what is the real reason. Procrastination. One of those funny signs […]...
Do you hear with both ears?
This past week I got an ear infection and even though I am on medication my ear remains plugged on the one side, leaving it pretty useless. I assume it will return to normal in time but in the mean time it has given me a lot to think about – specifically Matthew 13:13. In […]...
Save me super cake girl
My boys were playing super heroes the other day, and my daughter not wanting to be left out (but still as girly as they come) stood up and said, “I want to be a cake super hero.” She said she would drive around and make cakes for everyone who didn’t have one. She cracks me […]...
Building a heroine – literally
So I have heard a lot of lessons on how to build a character for you story. You need to consider motivations, back-story, fears, goals, and so much more. For a great instruction of building a character for a story, check out From the Inside…Out by Susan May Warren. But this blog isn’t about...
My one sheet
You may have picked up by now, I am a writer . I don’t have anything published as of yet, but I do have a book I am pursuing to get published. I will be attending the ACFW conference next week to meet and connect with other writers as well as agents and editors. For […]...
Where were you?
There are certain events in history that will often beg the question: Where were you? Where were you when Pearl Harbor was hit? Where were you when Kennedy was shot? Where were you when the Challenger blew up? Where were you when the two towers were hit? I love these questions and it is not...
Social media sweet spot
One aspect of a writer’s life is social media. An online presence, if you will. This has been a struggle with me. Inconsistent blogs (if you haven’t noticed), an occasional tweet, but I have struggled to really find my grove. This week I started my author page on Facebook. I must say that I think...
