Happy Fall. Jo,

Get ready for cooler weather

From my home to yours.

Pumpkin and Cream Cheese Muffins.

Enjoy the recipe.

I've tweaked this recipe over the years.  

If you bake this, be sure to take a photo and send it to me.

Along the journey.

I had fallen in 2019, which resulted in the sixth surgery on my left arm and hand a few weeks ago. Yes, I’m left-handed.

I was rejoicing today as the twenty-three stitches were taken out, and yes, it was painful.

My heart’s desire has been to journey on the path that God has ordained for me. Since 2019, this journey has been one of healing my body and building upon the foundation of my life as a child of God.

I never planned on becoming a writer or author, but God had a plan. When I started on this journey, I traveled to my first writer’s conference in 2017. People at the SpeakUp conference, hosted by Carol Kent, offered kindness, support, and love. I realized over the years, not to covet the success of others, but to follow the path that God had me on. This is not a simple lesson to master.

Delays since 2019 on a project that God showed me. Depression and unworthiness accompanied me, and I wondered if this would ever happen. I believe with all my heart that this book will be out in God’s timing and not mine.

On that note, I’m delighted to share in the upcoming newsletters, my first in a series of children’s historical fiction books.

Please pray to strengthen my arm and hand and my walk with God. 

Let me know how I can pray for you.

Blessings to each of you. Jo

Debuting in spring of 2023.

My two main characters will meet someone from the past. I will be providing some hints over the next few months. Let me know if you figure out who it


  1. An asteroid was named after this person.
  2.  This person was an inventor as a teen. This invention was created in the 1800s and is still used today.

Pumpkin time.
