Why I write

I'm putting fingers to keyboard today along with lots of other writers at lisa jo baker's blog for five minute friday where we write for five minutes straight. No worries about perfection, this is about writing for the joy of it. 

Come on over and check it out and if you decide to join in, watch out! You're going to be encouraged! Today's prompt is "write". 


My view of the FMF community

What do you do, when you feel you have multiple books inside of you, but you're not sure how to get them out?

Show up, Be seen. Live what I keep reminding myself on this little blog.

Yes, it takes lots of bravery for me, and now I'm realizing lots of us, to put pen to page, or hands to keyboard and let the passions, words, thoughts, emotions, dreams and desires flow out to let the world see them.

It's a love/hate, brave/scared proposition, this writing business! I so want to write with purpose, to encourage others in their journeys, in their faith walks.

I want to tell my story, and in the telling hopefully you'll see something and say, "Ahh, me, too!" And, you'll realize anew that you are not a drop in the big sea of life.

But, that you belong to a vast ocean of others who are on this journey called life.

You're not alone, but you belong!

That's my heart's desire.
So, I'm going to keep writing.


  1. I agree. Writing is such scary work! We need to overcome the fear and just write.

  3. Thank you for this encouragement! And I love the birdie photos. I've been an amateur birder since watching "The Big Year" and I love all the different ones!

  4. Thanks, Pattie! I liked The Big Year, too! I've never considered myself an amateur birder, but now that you mention it, I think I am. I just love birds! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Ahhh, me too! I can relate to so many things that you are brave enough to share through your writing. Thankful for your story :)

  6. Thanks, Tris, for your kind words!
