This calls for war!

Have you seen the movie War Room yet? It released this past week and is doing quite well in the box office, ranking number 2 this weekend and bringing in an estimated $10.7M.

Heat Required!

Do you have a favorite Christmas treat that you make every year? I can't make it through a Christmas season without making sugared nuts. My family devours them.Our neighbors wait for them. I've even had a friend call and remind me this year that he is supposed to be on the list to receive them. I've made pecans in the past, but they've gotten so expensive that I tried a new recipe for sugared peanuts and they seem to disappear as quickly as the pecans. You start with raw nuts. Then you coat them in a sugar mixture and place [...]

As a writer, having endorsements from famous people or other well known writers opens doors. It gains the attention of agents and publishers. I remember pitching my very first book idea to an acquisition's editor at a writer's conference. I was scared to death. Fortunately, I had gotten to know the editor throughout the week socially, so some of the anxiety about our meeting had subsided. At the very least, him was [...]

I want to be like……

Who do look up to?  Who do you say "I want to be like ___" in life, whether it's an athlete, a singer, a writer, or a business mogul?  We all have people we admire for their accomplishments and place in life. Back in the 90s, there was a Gatorade commercial with Michael Jordan in it and the song playing in the background was Like Mike. The lyrics are, Sometimes I dream that he is me You’ve got to see that’s how I dream to be I dream I move, I dream I grove Like Mike If I could be [...]
