A FROG-GY IMAGE

Each day I commit to doing something courageous. Today, as a shout out to my technological weaknesses, I strengthen my resolve. I’m inserting a visual aid for the first time to the FROG Blog. Thank you to Ylanite Koppens for providing this incredible photo!

Update from A Frozen FROG

Last month, I got to meet with part of the team who join me on our next adventure in the FROG Blog series. FROG Blog: Living on a Frozen Lily Pad is preparing to leap into publication early 2020. The FROG Blog: Learning on a Lily Pad (book #1) is available in print or download…

DELIVERY CHARGE

This comes from my double-dare project to publish, “Life’s Too Short for Dull Razors, Cheap Pens, and Worn Out Underwear” (April 1, 2019 on Amazon and Kindle). It’s from a section where I include behind-the-scenes stories from previous jobs.  Another classic story is delivered from my time working at Pizza Hut. This was during the…

FOUR WORD TRUTH

I sat by a retired Air Force pilot on a return flight from my grandma’s funeral. (I wasn’t his co-pilot. We were both passengers on someone else’s plane). After our initial small talk to determine interaction and space boundaries, the former pilot asked the purpose of my trip. When I said it was related to…

LUMP OR LAMP?

This is an excerpt from the first book in the FROG Blog series (available on Kindle and Amazon). I am working with a team of 12 authors for the second book in the series, “The FROG Blog from a Frozen Lily Pad.”  I learned about inspecting feelings when they need “tempering” (aka attitude adjustment). The…

Frogs and Tadpoles

Readers, I’m testing a future book in the FROG Blog series on you. The original FROG Blog, Learning on a Lily Pad was published in May and I’m currently working on the second book in that series. As 12 authors and I wrap up that adventurous project, I’m considering a third FROG book. I’ve been…

As an author, I identify with God’s creation story. In the beginning of each writing project, I sometimes see blank paper as a…

This short collection includes me joining twenty-three authors who uniquely but briefly describe our delicate slice-of-life experiences. Thank you to all those who have supported me in fulfilling a dare to write what I think about when I run….

EASTER SEASON FRIENDS

Good Friday! I sent a few Easter cards this week and just finished one to a forty (plus) year friend. Allisa and I met in grade school and have swum life’s lazy river lily pads and whitewater rafting currents. During Easter fasting, praying, and preparation, I realize she is a three-day Easter friend. Allisa and…

JUST THE FACTS MA’AM

“Then she ran…and said to them, “They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him” (John 20:2). In this gospel from John, Mary Magdalene was visiting Jesus’ grave early one morning when she saw the stone covering His tomb had been rolled away. It…
