C.H. tagged me. This is actually a really good meme because everyone should be able to give their testimony in 100 words or less.

When I was growing up, I depended wholly on my own resources in my friendships, my family life, and in my school life. I wasn’t very sociable and fell into a suicidal depression. But God sent the right person with the right words to make me realize I could have a new life, a “do-over,” if I gave my life to Jesus. God saved me from that depression. He continues to show me that I don’t need to depend on myself, I only need to depend on Him. I’m never alone.

How about you? What’s your testimony?

Good girl blogging:

I want to give a shout out to my fellow Christian chick lit author friends, Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt. They have a blog called Good Girl Lit that you reeeeeeeally need to check out!


  1. Hey, thanks for the shout-out!

    Your cover looks awesome, but the way. I can't wait to read the book!

  2. I grew up doing all the right stuff. Going to church, trying to be good, even took a mail correspondence course of the Bible while in High School. Got married a week after graduating. Got divorced five years later, and went totally wild! It wasn't until my second marriage that I realized life didn't work very well the way I was living it. I turned back to God who'd been waiting patiently for me to come to my senses.

    I want to win the chocolate beach book.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

Ghetto Gongfu @mastersteas #mastersteas

Last year, I really got into brewing oolong teas, black teas, and Chinese green teas gongfu style. It’s a method where you use a little more tea leaves but steep for a very short time (usually only 15-25 seconds), and then each steeping after that is a few seconds longer. When doing such a short steep, the tea is not bitter at all. I like how each steeping of tea tastes just a little different, because the tea leaves will release certain compounds first and other compounds later. Also, you can usually steep it anywhere from 5 to 9 times, depending on the tea. You can use a tiny gaiwan teacup to brew tea just for yourself, or you can use a teapot. There are some teapots made specifically for gongfu brewing, although they tend to be very small, ranging from 200 mL to 300 mL (although there are some that are larger and smaller, of course). There are a few teas at that I really love, but which are very expensive since they’re very high quality. However, some of them

Regency titles in Lady Wynwood's Spies

I happened to read a review of Lady Wynwood’s Spies, volume 1: Archer , and the reader mentioned being confused because characters switched between using first names and last names. I didn’t comment on the review (it’s my policy never to do so), but I thought it might be useful for my readers for me to mention why I have some characters referring to certain others by their first names or last names or titles. When I was researching British titles, many published historical authors recommended this article , which is one of a series of very informative articles on how the British refer to those with titles. The article writer mentions that especially in the Georgian/Regency/Victorian time period in England, people did not refer to each other by their first names unless they were childhood friends or close family, and even close family would often refer to a peer by his title name (or a nickname of his title name) rather than his first name (i.e., “Hart” for Lord Hartley).
