What I Do:
- I aim to inspire through fiction, my blog, knitting patterns, recipes, and freelance articles. (And my music, too.)
- I'm a work-from-home mom to four amazing boys. Three grew in my womb, one grew in my heart, but was taken home to heaven in June, 2015.
- I cook from scratch, grow as much of my own food as I can, and eat traditional, whole-food style. I believe that giving the body whole-food support can prevent many illnesses.
- In my "spare time", I love getting into my garden, taking care of my chickens, cats, and dog, and exploring other hobbies (photography, sewing and scrapbooking are favourites.)
Why I Do It:
- I believe God put you and me and every other person on this earth for a reason.
- I believe that spreading love and kindness is one of the most important things we can do.
- I believe that this world can be an amazing, magical place, but we all need to be a part of making the magic happen.
- I believe in mermaids and faeries. I really want to be a mermaid when I grow up.
- I believe that you can make a difference in your world today.
My goal is to inspire you to reach higher, try harder, and be better. I want you to realize your full potential, and always know how fabulous you are. May you be uplifted by visiting me today. Please drop me a note to let me know you were here--I'd love to hear from you!
This iconic building of our flag inspired some insight into being our best selves. The choice is up to us.
Mary DeMuth's biography on Facebook begins, “If you met Mary today, her joy would confuse you.” I love that. After all that Mary has been through, the fact that she is known by her joy (not surprising if you read even one article she has written) is a testimony to the healing power of Christ. His love shines through her like light through a stained glass window.
What do kittens, rules, and the principles of love have in common?
Okay, so I know that summer is already almost half over. (What? I know, right?) But there are still six more weeks for summer reading--you've got plenty of time! (Six of the seven are indie authors or were published by small presses, and several are by Canadian authors. Can you guess which ones?)
Lately, I've been getting that too-familiar "overwhelmed" feeling. Looking back over the first six months of this year, I am coming to a difficult conclusion: I still can't do it all. So it's time to reset some priorities.
In Eleora, Melissa Keaster brings to life a world as enduring as Narnia or Middle Earth and characters that will live in your heart next to Lucy Pevensie and Bilbo Baggins. It is a world where spirits walk, crime rings hold immense power, and the King, though seemingly absent, still guides the land through the magical Eleora stone--a gem of immense power.
