Patience Needed

No comment

Time is moving slowly as I work on a new website. There have been a few bumps along the way. It also means that I haven’t been working much on this site. I’m sorry for the delay. I have been writing, however, and keeping busy.

Currently, I just finished a mystery interactive theater script that will be used this Christmas. It was not only fun to write, but exciting to see it come together on the stage. I will keep you informed on how the performance is received.

Pray about the new website. I would love to have it up and running before the end of the years. As always, may God bless each of you.

Hugs,

Happy July

No comment

I’ve been a bit behind in my writing. It’s been a busy spring and summer. It won’t be long until I begin work on my new website. Most of my last few months have been spent developing another website for another Christian organization. Trust me, I had a huge learning curve during the process. Working on this website should be a little easier. Right??? I can hope.

Vacation Bible School begins soon. The excited is building with the children and workers alike. It’s one of my favorite ministries. I’m also working on a Christmas dessert theater. This is a great project…one I haven’t tried before. This is different than writing a traditional drama. Another work in progress. It’s also like having Christmas in July. I will keep you posted.

Some have asked if I plan to write any more books in the Bay Island series. I would love to…but I think there has been too much time since the last book was written to interest my publisher. There are, however, two other manuscripts that I’m currently working on that are a lot of fun.

Hope everyone is having a great summer. Keep in touch.

Hugs,

Changes and More Changes

No comment

Welcome to spring. Spring means change…ones that I like. Time for warm weather, sunshine, softball, gardening, and camping. It also finds me in the midst of change. I’m helping to make changes in an organization I work with. One change: new website. Developing a website from the bottom up has been informative and interesting. When that website is complete, I’ll be doing the same for this website.

Exciting, huh? Yes, it is. It’s cutting into my writing time, but this is where God has put me. I’ll keep everyone posted.

Until then, keep look towards the Son. 🙂

Winter Grand Ball

No comment

Dressing the part of a Civil War era lady in a ball gown is like a dream come true…especially for this writer. It’s like being sent back in time. Although I write contemporary novels, I do love history, and dressing the part makes it seem almost real. Writing is like that. I have to “be” my character when I write so that I can understand what motivates the heroine or hero to do what they do. It can be exhausting when the character is going through hard times. The writer has to go through those hard times with their heroine.

I have been extremely busy with the Maternity Resource Center that operates close to my home. It’s been such a blessing to be part of this ministry that helps mothers and children in need. God is good! He has seen that needs have been met in several areas. Over 8 women came to know Christ last year through the MRC.

In other news, it’s been very wintery in Ohio. Quite normal for this time of year, but I’m suffering from “sticker shock” after last year’s warm weather. The snow has been beautiful…when I’m not driving in it. I’m hoping spring will be early since some of the robins have already come back. Maybe they are directionally challenged. I’m hoping they know something we don’t.

Hope everyone is staying warm and enjoying God’s bounty.

Hugs,
Beth
