Violence and Victory

As I near the publishing birthday of my first FROG books in a series, I celebrate with this excerpt from The Frog Blog: Learning on a Lily Pad (available on Kindle and Amazon).  I dedicate it to my soul friend, Elizabeth who courageously practices to live this message every day! I’m reading Pastor Joel Osteen’s…

THINK ORCHESTRA, NOT SHOTGUN

This FROG Blog is from Tadpoles, an upcoming book in the FROG Blog series featuring food-for-thought in bite size pieces (300 words or less). Thank you Andreas Wohlfahrt for providing this photo! Peter and the other apostles replied, “we must obey God rather than human beings” (Acts 5:29). I was created to write. The world…

Aim high. Lay low.

Typically, my social media is limited to Friday on the FROG Blog and Facebook. I share my inspired writing this Monday after some “Knee-Deep Interaction” from this morning:  Today, I’m exposing my readers to infectious encouragement and a contagious smile. I hope my uplifting enthusiasm will go viral. I’m sending direct contact (electronically) with kindness…

Practicing Zowie

Perhaps the best (not easiest) way to follow through on my Zowie adventure is to immediately practice. I handwrite my Creator Chat letters in a journal. This one, for posting purposes, is copied word for word, potentially with errors, but as promised, it is in unedited print. This may (or may not) be part of…

Zowie, Part 3 of 3

This is the final piece from my Zowie turn of events on the FROG Blog: Lily Pad of Life Lessons. Part 1 posted March 3. Part 2 posted March 13.  …year journey of a newly published author. I planned to handwrite them and print a small book diary. I set off in that direction and…

Zowie, Part 2 of 3

The inside story of Zowie in 500 words. Zowie Part 1 is posted on the FROG Blog website and my author page on Facebook (Christina M. Eder-author): …run. Eight years later, sometimes one sentence at a time, I finished, “Life’s Too Short for Dull Razors, Cheap Pens and Worn-Out Underwear.” I hadn’t titled the book…

Zowie!

Zowie! Professionally speaking, zowie isn’t a preferred word to summarize this twist in the FROG Blog book series. However, zowie is the only word I muster to describe a jaw-dropping-I-didn’t-expect-this-“variation”-and-now-how-on-earth-am-I-going-to-modify-my-plans? How-I-can-I-take-this-sharp-fork-in-the-road-and-not-have-it-feel-like-a-knife-in-my-spleen? I pause long enough to come up for air and breathe, Zowie. To honor my 500-word limit of each FROG Blog, I’ll divide this…

Happy 9th Birthday!

This week’s FROG Blog is dedicated to Marley Mae, our oldest granddaughter who turns nine tomorrow. The world gained a kind, creative, generous spirit February 22nd when she was born. Happy 9th Birthday Marley Mae! (The following is an excerpt from my first FROG Blog book, Learning on a Lily Pad. Available on Amazon and…
