Everyday Heroes: Ally Bowen, This Girl Hates to Run, Seriously She Does

img_0243Do you like to run?

You know what I mean—you put on some comfortable, breathable clothing. Maybe use a little Glide to prevent chafing and lace-up a pair of good, supportive kicks. Then step out onto the roadway, path, or track. Sometimes the birds are singing, enticing the sun to peek over the horizon. Other times it’s dark. Silent. You’re the only one stirring, playing catch-me-if-you-can with the dawn. Continue reading “Everyday Heroes: Ally Bowen, This Girl Hates to Run, Seriously She Does”

My 15 Minutes: Matthew 7:24-27: Sunshine and Thunderheads

rainWe had some of the strangest weather yesterday.

It started out with a constant misty-drizzle, everything was drippy and dreary. Then a few hours later, the sun came out displaying one of my favorite things: sunshine glittering off raindrops still clinging to the grass and trees. Everything looked bright and exciting, fresh and clean, holding the promise of a beautiful day.

Then the thunderheads started to bully their way across the sky.

IT’S TIME!! Would you commit to praying for and with me this week?

NCWC 2018

Hello, hello, hello!!

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th!

I had the privilege of being on vacation with family for the week. And I confess: I didn’t write anything new! However, I was busily editing my book proposal for this weekend’s Christian writer’s conference.

I feel like I’m back in school, and I have a term paper due!

However, I’m not ready to turn it in yet and my time is evaporating faster than raindrops on hot pavement. Don’t worry, I’ll have it done. And then, I’ll be back at it as soon as this weekend is over.

I have a stack of outlines for blog posts, pictures, and–squirrel…sorry. I was getting excited. Focus, Cheyenne.

This weekend.

The Writer’s Conference.
