You may be wondering where I have been. I didn’t realize how long it’s been since I posted here, but in addition to being a writer, I am a homeschool mom of three and that keeps me quite busy. As part of our homeschooling, we are involved in a homeschool co-op which runs twenty weeks of the year, and in order to be a member, I am require to teach a class and be a teacher’s helper in a class. This year I am teaching Starting Points by David Quine, a World View study. It is a wonderful study, but it is very in-depth and has no teacher’s book or answer key. The teacher is required to read and study the same as the students and to teach the students from what he or she gleans from the study. Therefore, I have been incredibly busy reading and studying wonderful books about my faith and why I believe and what I believe, as well as some wonderful works of fiction and watching two classic movies. I am currently working my way through C.S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity and will be wrapping that up a week from today. However, I then have one more book to read and study to complete the Bible and Literature sections of the curriculum. There is also a history section, which I will not be doing until the new school year begins in September.
I highly recommend that anyone who wishes to grow stronger in their faith or wants to write stories with a strong Christian message, characters or lesson complete this study. You will not regret it.
That being said, I plan to begin posting on here more regularly in a couple of weeks. I hope you will bear with me.
Now, something on writing: this Saturday I will be attending my first Writers’ Conference. I will be attending the Lancaster Christian Writers 2014 Super Saturday! You can find out more about it here: http://www.lancasterchristianwriterstoday.blogspot.com/.
I look forward to learning more about the writing craft and publishing. I plan to post about the conference next week, so stay tuned.

Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve gotten notified of a post at your blog. I’ve deleted some blogs on my list over the weeks because of other things I’m working on. Yet, when I do this, I see your name and pass by it hoping you’ll return to the blogsphere, and so you have. I can just imagine the hectic schedule you have with home schooling. I don’t think I’d want to try it.
Thank you for your loyalty, Glynis. That means a lot to me and encourages me. I will do my best not to let you down.
