“Live Like You Are Living” is one of Glynis M Belec’s blog posts on her website and this one is about living life to the fullest and dying with a different perspective. In it, Glynis recounts a conversation with a dear friend who has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

“It’s silly, but I was a little nervous to make the phone call. I mean, what do you say to someone whose husband died four months ago? To someone whose father died two months ago? To someone who was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer? Pancreatic cancer? “They can’t do anything for me” kind of cancer?” … continue reading

“I love writing short stories and devotions. One of my biggest joys is encouraging and making people smile when they read my work. I especially love to make children grin and am constantly inspired by their antics and curiosity.

‘Reflections on 2018’ by Chris Forster

Chris Forster writes about her reflections on 2018 in her blog post. As you reflect on the past year, did it meet your expectations, did you find that some things you thought would happen just didn’t? Are you hopeful for this new year? Chris looks back on 2018 and reflects on all these questions with interesting results.

“This has been a most interesting year. I joined several quilt-a-longs to hopefully, move forward some ufos. Did not happen. There was really only one quilt start and it was the one thing I worked on every month. Oh. There was another impulse. The lazer cut pre fused Huguenot Friendship Quilt. It was boring. Really. I did bring Bright Jane out to play for a few months. That was fun. Then impulsively I wrote up 26 blog posts about ufos never before mentioned here. It was quite a journey. But not a stitch to move any of them forward…” continue reading Chris’ blog post

Anna Sklar on Life and Work in 2018

What better way to start the new year than with a devotional to study through The Lord’s Prayer?
A look back at 2018 for a very busy author, Anna Sklar, who writes Bible Studies, Devotionals, and nonfiction.

“I’ve been busy.

Not just when it comes to creating or updating or compiling books.

I got myself a part-time job and started a Master’s program too!

The job and the schooling are done from home, which is the only way it works for me.

And I’m grateful, SO GRATEFUL, for all that fills my days.

But I’m still finding the balance.”… read more of Anna’s blog
