A Fun Read for Middle School and Beyond!

I am an author of non-fiction with a secret love of dragons and all I can say is “Wow”! C. Lee McKenzie’s Sign of the Green Dragon kept me guessing every inch of the way. McKenzie’s imagery had me searching the cold walls of the cave in the dark, while feeling the breeze of the dragons’ wings […]

The Argument for the Oxford Comma

I’m in the middle of a freelance editing job and the argument for/against the Oxford comma rears its ugly head once again. The Oxford comma was first seen in England in 1905 and agreed to by Strunk’s edition of The Elements of Style in 1918. The Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) still recommends its use. Some grammarians, […]

Great Read on Life in Haines, Alaska

My daughter just returned home after a 6-week surgery rotation at the Anchorage Native Medical Center. Because she knows her mom (me) has Trip to Inner Alaska as #1 on my Bucket List and she knows I write and read memoirs, she brought me Heather Lende’s If You Lived Here, I’d Know Your Name. Heather […]

Words of Wisdom from a Very Special Friend

I met Jean Tate Howard just as she turned a very young 84 years. She was one of my first Legacy writing students. She wrote and spoke much wisdom into my life and into the lives of the other students in my class. The ladies from that first class would not stop writing and after […]

Memories Triggered

The busyness of life has taken me away from my writing for a while. However, my ponderings never stop. The simple things of life bring so many opportunities to marvel at God’s creations and goodness. As I helped my 94-year old mom back into bed this morning, the workings of the human mind made me […]

A Must Read: The Promises of Ophelia Bennett

I have read many of Cec Murphey‘s books and loved them all. However, in my estimation, his best yet is one of his newest fictions The Promises of Ophelia Bennett. The quiet Mrs. Bennett brings so much more to her students than the ability to read and write. In her promises, her “poorest of poor” […]

Your Golden Years can Really be Golden

Have you considered what you want your golden years to look like? Will you move from your home of thirty or forty years to another state to enjoy grandchildren? Will you move in with your son or daughter’s family or will they move in with you to share expenses or for you to help with […]

New Year’s Resolutions–NOT ME

New Year’s resolutions are for the birds. No, birds don’t even make New Year’s resolutions. I guess they know how temporary this world is, or maybe they just live for the day. My only resolution I might make if I had one of those lists would be to teach more by teaching less. I have […]

December 30 Worth the Wait

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us… Isaiah 9:6 (NAS) In 1987, our first child was due at Thanksgiving. But November quietly turned into December, and our son still hadn’t made his appearance. As I anxiously awaited Kevin’s birth, I couldn’t help but compare my time of […]
