A couple weeks ago when the weather was warm and beautiful, I took a long walk through the woods, made longer by getting myself thoroughly lost. While I wandered, God reminded me of a call He has been continually placing on my heart.
"Take my yoke, for it is easy and my burden is light." I never want to believe that, being a nose to the grindstone kind of girl with worrywart tendencies. Yet, He keeps calling me to joy. What He asks of me is prayer, praise, writing, and pursuing…Continue

Just over a year ago, I was at a writers' retreat, trying to figure out what to do next. I had big aspirations to write fiction, and had started five or six manuscripts, but never felt good about them.
