I get by with a little help from my friends <3


Why do people like me go to “writer’s conferences”?

Because of people like these.

It takes a certain wiring to be driven to sit down and pen or type out your thoughts and then set them out into the atmosphere both hoping someone will read it and get it…and fearing they will read it and won’t.

The ladies in the picture above are women who understand the drive, the angst, the heart and effort that go into what feels like a calling to show up in a space I rent on the internet and hopefully speak some encouragement into someone’s day.

At best, I aim to make a reader understand they are not alone…and if nothing else they can thank the good Lord they are not me and go on with their bad selves with the rest of their day.

So today I am so very thankful to Shelly D. Templin for sharing my blog on her website.

You can read her kind words here: https://www.shellydtemplin.com/encouragement/a-few-of-my-favorite-things-and-i-think-theyll-become-yours-too-3-journey-onward/
