new blog!

Hello friends,

First, thanks so much for reading and sharing this journey with me. What started out as mere accountability for myself to write more has become something very important to me, and it's all because of the surprising warmth of community I've stumbled into, out here in the blogosphere. So, thanks again for the support.

I'm super excited to share with you my new blog, one that's been under construction for some time now. It's simply: 

If you're subscribed to this blog, your subscription will not transfer. You'll have to re-enter your email address and click on the confirmation link that feedburner sends you to set it up again.

Thanks for the love and support!

I remember everybody laughing so hard, letting their kid-selves out.

Then suddenly at church they started showing videos about the dangers of secular music, and people were talking often about Devil worshipers. A visiting preacher may have done the final trick, but one day Mama and Daddy sat us all down and broke the news. No more Trick or Treating.
