By now, if you’re a member of my newsletter family, you’ve received your latest issue of my monthly newsletter. Squeeee!
Haven’t opened it yet?
Well, hurry up!
As always, there’s a TON of great content with a special goodie (just for subscribers) this month. If you’ve read my newsletter, please let me know what you think, what you loved about it, and what you’d like to see more/less of. My newsletters are for my gift to YOU. (And if you haven’t joined my newsletter family yet… This is your personal invitation! There’s a cyber hug waiting for you.)
As always, I appreciate your kind words and e-mails. You have no idea how your thoughts and encouragement and shares and likes bless me!
I pray I bless you, too.
Here’s the thing.
The writing life is hard. Writing, itself, is often a solitary effort.
Because writers are a unique, creative lot, we tend to work odd hours, without benefit of company (unless you count the voices in our head).
We enjoy knowing our labor’s not in vain—that someone, somewhere likes what we write and is encouraged by our efforts.

No-No Nellys are a dime a dozen.
Bad news abounds.
You won’t find that in my monthly newsletters. There’s enough of that elsewhere.
What will you find?
I’m so glad you asked!
What you won’t find—
Pretentiousness. You might as well know. I’m not a fancy gal. I don’t eat jello with a toothpick, but I don’t put on airs either.
Holier-than-thou. I’m flawed. Broken. Hungry. A grace-seeker. A heart-mender. I fail. Maybe, you do, too.
Judgement and condemnation. Really? Not my job. I will always share tactfully, truthfully, and lovingly, but my opinion’s mine. You may choose to respectfully disagree. That’s okay!
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s move on.
I have readers from all walks of life.
My newsletter family includes wives, mamas, daddies, college kids, writers, retirees, and veterans.
My newsletter family includes those who are happy and those who are hurting.
My newsletter family includes those who are single, married, gay, and straight.
My newsletter family includes those who need a safe place. A light. A dose of joy in the midst of darkness.
I want you to know…
I love each of you.
I cheer for you.
I cry with you.
I pray for you.
Ahh, my friend.
Life’s too short—too fragile—to belabor infractions and mistakes.
“For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” (Matthew 6:14-15 NIV)
Let me share my heart with you.
