I haven’t been blogging lately. Just doing life stuff. So…I thought I’d give you an update of what’s been going on this year. First, about writing.
Part of my story is in a chapter of my writing coaches CJ Hitz and Shelley Hitz’s book, Kingdom Writers. I helped to promote it. You can find the book here, available on Amazon. It is a great book!
I’m one of the featured alumni panelist speakers for Shelley’s upcoming Kingdom Writers conference on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, at 11 a.m. eastern time, so stay tuned for more news about that!
Each alumni speaker will only speak for a few minutes, but this is such an honor that Shelley asked me to do this! This edition of the conference is dedicated to helping authors build their platform and sell more books through collaborations
If you need a speaker for your women’s conference, retreat, online event, or podcast, or know an event planner who does, please contact me here. I love encouraging women and giving them the hope of Jesus Christ!
I’ve also been writing a Vella fiction short story called She Won. It’s about a recent widow and mom of 4 grown children, Norah Wellington, who goes to the convenience store every day to buy a coffee, a chocolate doughnut with colored sprinkles, and a lottery ticket. One day she wins the jackpot.
She winds up moving to Destin beach, Florida, the place of her dreams. She has heard that winning the lottery can be a curse instead of a blessing. It also changes people–for the worst! What will Norah do with the money?

It’s been a stressful couple of months lately with lots of techie issues with our internet service, my laptop, my podcast, and my iPhone. You can listen in here at my new podcast on what’s been happening lately and to hear about the miracle God did with thousands of my phone pics and videos!
I give Jesus Christ all the glory for this and am so happy that God saved them for me! He is a good Father!

Our phones were messing up, so Ray and I upgraded both our phones to the newest ones and we even got a better plan that was a little less expensive. Ray also bought more iCloud memory for my phone, so I won’t run out of space to store my pics and videos.
While my family thinks I take a ridiculous amount of pictures, two of the [young] tech staff at the phone company told me they had just as many, and more! Do you take lots of pics and videos on your phone? Basically, our phones have become our digital photo albums and scrapbooks.

Do you need a miracle or two? I know I do! Don’t we all?
A miracle is defined as:
- a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency;
- a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences;
- an amazing product or achievement, or an outstanding example of something;
- a wonder; a marvel;
an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause;
such an effect or event manifesting or considered as a work of God.
At the end of each year, I reflect on that year and pray about the coming new year.
For the last several years, instead of making new year’s resolutions, I ask God for a “one word” and an accompanying Scripture for the year.
