Here I share any news about my own writing and also any encouraging ideas and articles for aspiring writers. In 2002, Chris gave me an enrollment into a four year comprehensive writing course for my birthday present. It was my best presie ever! I loved the course, and writing quickly became a passion. It took perseverance and lots of discouraging moments before I finally had my first story accepted for publication in Guide Magazine. After that initial acceptance it seemed to became easier and easier.

One of the passions I have had for many years is to encourage parents in the wonderful and challenging task of raising their children. So, in 2006 I began writing a series called The Gift of Values. Volume One was published in 2007 and in 2008 The Gift of Values ~ Volume Two was published. I am in the process of writing Volume Three.

After a year of living in our barn, the story of our life here just had to be told! Where Lions Roar at Night just about wrote itself. I have always kept a very detailed diary and the book was very easy to write as I chuckled my way through the entries, remembering those special moments.

Writing is a gift, but also a discipline and a craft. We need to develop it and improve it. This takes time and effort, but is well worth it! May God use our writing to His glory.

I’ve just got back from HEART (Home Educators Annual Retreat) where we were shown a great movie clip made by a homeschooling family (Team Gordon) who have relocated to Uganda. I have always had a heart for missions, and used to dream of taking the whole family somewhere.
