Other Bodies – Book Review

I don't read many YA dystopian books, but the concept of Other Bodies piqued my interest, so I took advantage of the opportunity to review it. Other Bodies is set in futuristic Philadelphia, in a world where virtual reality is blurred with reality. Author Joel Ohman invites us on a journey with sixteen-year-old Hattie Martins…

The Rape of Recy – Movie Review

When my daughter was in school she participated in National History Day and competed at the regional, state, and national level for five years. She also competed each year in a local history-based film festival for high school students. As a result of attending the many events, we witnessed hundreds of performances, exhibits, websites, and…

Marnie Swedberg

I first discovered Marnie Swedberg when I watched one of her teleconferences. From there, I learned about Christian Women Speakers and was excited to sign on as speaker. The longer I know Marnie, the more I'm amazed at all that she does. She's the author of thirteen books. She travels around the globe speaking on…

When Life Doesn’t Match Your Dreams – Book Review

Let me begin by saying that the subtitle for When Life Doesn't Match Your Dreams is "Hope for Today from 12 Women of the Bible". Honestly, for me, the subtitle better expresses the book than the title. I love reading about women of the Bible, and this is a good one. So don't be misled…

Gospel of Matthew – Book Review

Alabaster company

I honestly wasn't sure what to expect when I signed on to review Gospel of Matthew, and when it arrived in the mail, I've got to admit, I sat and stared at it for awhile, trying to figure out exactly what it was. You see, it's nothing like any other book I've seen. The text…

Marketing for Authors – With Meghan Weyerbacher

I met Meghan Weyerbacher in a writing-related group and was instantly impressed with her energy and enthusiasm for others. She interviewed me on her blog and wrote an endorsement for the movie.

Common Man, Extraordinary Call – Book Review

When I was growing up, my mother worked at a special education school, and when I was in college, I substitute taught at the school. I also have a number of friends with special needs children, so I'm somewhat familiar with the unique demands placed on the parents. However, I've only seen things from my…
