Heart on the Altar

  I don't often venture into the realm of poetry. But sometimes, especially when I'm working through things, I sort of go back to the familiar; back to what started my love of writing and words in the first place. For some readers, you'll know what's happening here. For others, I have a lot to... Continue Reading →

When Longing Becomes a Distraction

In case you've missed it the other 586 times I've mentioned it in the past two years...I miss Asheville, NC something fierce. Leaving our home in PA...the only place we'd ever lived...and heading to NC was terrifying. I fought it like nothing else. But, we felt called and every single door I hoped would slam...
