12 Great Questions for Author Sarah Cunningham

By | Writing | 4 Comments

I would like to post an unbiased review of Sarah Cunningham’s book Picking Dandelions, I really would. But when she mentioned having cubicle walls at her christian school desk (like I did) and made me laugh out loud about her role in “church business meetings,” I liked her too much to be objective. And when I read about her passion for the church and her internal struggles to embrace change…

Agent Chip MacGregor on Success

Do you want to live a significant life? Do you want to make a difference? I think most of us do. We chase plans, looking for meaning, and get frustrated when we don’t see where our lives are headed. Like Lindsey said yesterday, we take an inkling of what God has planned and run with it, without checking back to see if we are headed the right direction. For me,…

Happy Monday! I’m pumped to start a conversation about mothering this week! I’ve got some fun guest posts and Caryn Rivadeneira’s going to start us off. Caryn has become very special to me.

I’m a sucker for trends. On any given Sunday you’ll see me in the pre-worship church hubbub, checking out the cute frocks of the teens and twenties crowd. I watch as trends emerge (egyptian sandals), submerge (neon, go away) or float for a while (leggings). The ones that stick around I deem safe for my early-thirties demographic, and I hit up Forever 21 or a similarly loud-music, skinny-jean wearing establishment…

It’s funny to give the whole writing thing a go. I know I’m reluctant to call myself anything beyond someone who “likes to write.” Using the word Author feels like the equivalent of calling 1st grade math “pre-algebra”.
