Life is tough, isn’t it? Everyone has times of darkness and loneliness. Sometimes, the Lord seems very far away. Just when you’re on rock bottom, though, the Lord sends a blessing. A kind note from a friend, an unexpected check for $10 (or more!), a box of clothing from your Mother-in-law (Thanks, Kathy!), or an email saying the article you submitted nine months prior is appearing in The Old Schoolhouse magazine! It was an exciting day last fall, when my article was accepted and I received my first contract in the mail. The editor was so kind and helpful. It was a wonderful experience. It was, to me, a dream come true! 🙂

If you are just coming here from reading in TOS, I’d like to thank you for dropping by. I hope you’ll stay a while and say hello!

    That's a very good article! I'm surprised that the magazine will let me read it for free.
    God has given you a great gift for writing. I'm very thankful that you get to exercise it and get paid at the same time.
