What God Thinks of Frienemies.

What God Thinks of Frienemies.

“After Job had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has. So now take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and sacrifice a […]

Camaraderie of sorrows, fellowship of sadness.

Camaraderie of sorrows, fellowship of sadness.

“How I long for the months gone by, for the days when God watched over me, when His lamp shone upon my head and by His light I walked through darkness! Oh for the days when I was in my prime, when God’s intimate friendship blessed my house.” Job: 29: 2-4 I hit the replay […]

The Only Voice – 9/11 Anniversary 2014

What can you say about the cruelest tragedy ever to overtake this great country?

Sitting Still- The Greatest Movement of All

Carol here: As writers we often put too much pressure on big stuff like our pending novel and forget to pay attention to the smaller things in life- like a sweet little dog. I met Joseph at Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writer’s Conference and he has agreed to share his story. Seven months ago we […]

Am I a Good Enough Mom?

Being a mother is hard. I’ve been at this mothering thing for many years and I’m still no child expert. Even with four grown children I’m still learning. But I believe in being real, and real wins over being a super-achiever in my book. Call off the bragging rights (well, we can brag some).Cancel the […]
