Here is one of those questions and my short answer. More to come in the coming weeks! How do you find time to write? How do you find time to write?

Writers: How to NOT give up on the book of your heart

Do you have a book that you’ve been wanting to write? Do you think it’s a great idea, but it’s hard convincing a publisher the same? In 1999 I had an idea for a book for young people called Prayers that Changed History. As a homeschooling mom I kept coming upon these GREAT stories of prayer such as: Governor William Bradford praying for rain for the failing crops in the New World, and nine hours later clouds rolling in after {Read More}

The Brave Writer

I’ve never considered myself a brave person. I’m not one to bungee jump, and the best I’ve done on the ski slopes is the beginner’s run. (And with much trepidation at that!) Stepping out and deciding to pursuing writing was one of my bravest steps. Writing about the deep pain and struggles in my life—in my fiction and non-fiction—has been the bravest. Yet I’ve done other things that are brave. Here are a few: Adopting kids. John and I have {Read More}

The Forgotten War

This year World War II is going to get a lot of attention. May 8, 1945 was be the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe. But thinking about World War II also makes remember the often forgotten war. The Spanish Civil War  … ever heard of it? Yeah, I hadn’t really either. Beyond hearing about a For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway, I didn’t understand the time period or the events of this {Read More}

Hope in the Darkness | Stories from WWII {Plus Link-Up!}

With every one of the 12 hours it took me to get to Kalamazoo, Michigan, my doubts grew. I was a young mom of three, an aspiring romance novelist who’d yet to commit more than a few chapters of a book to paper—let alone get a publisher interested. What business did I have attending a reunion of World War II vets, interviewing them about one of the most troubling times in human history? Now here I was, at the hotel, {Read More}

Day in the Life of a Best-Selling Author

How do you picture the day of a best-selling author? Sitting in a beautiful setting, sipping tea, reading classic literature, and penning prose? Or perhaps having time to sit and ponder major plot complexities. Or maybe … just breathing life to words on this page this way. In real life this was my day: 7:45 a.m. woke up and realized I slept in and my three little kids (ages 7, 5, and 4) were already awake. (Which means no shower.) {Read More}

The Spiritual Life of a Reader

I remember the first Christian novel I ever read. It was Love Comes Softly by Jeanette Oke. I was in high school, and my spiritual life was a mess. Around this time I was also reading things like The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough and Pet Cemetery by Steven King—books that truly vexed my soul. Reading Love Comes Softly was like finding a cool spring of fresh water in a blazing hot desert. I went on to read more of the {Read More}
