About Me

A little about me and this blog!

About Me…

*Mama to boy/girl twins (21) and a 20-year old daughter-all away at different universities. They are my favorite people. They are cool and fun and sooo much smarter than I was at their age.

*I’m a deep thinker. I need to purposely rest my ever-running mind.

*I am a Bible-believing Christian.

*Adjunct Professor.

*Non-fiction reader.

*The blog content contains diverse topics and various ponderings about life:Β Family-Life. Faith-Life. Mid-Life. Sharing-Life!

*Libraries, snail mail, cursive writing, hand-written notes, the American flag…all special.

*I love QVC! (I love to watch but can rarely buy!)

*Grateful to be an American – grateful to the service men and women who defend and protect my family’s freedom. Thank you to our active and retired veterans and their families.

*Thank you for reading this last line and for visiting my blog! I appreciate it very much! πŸ™‚

  1. After having read your article, I can only say, “wow!” You really know how to express yourself to others. It is like if you were writing your article on a plain white sheet of paper, using a “real ink pen,” with the ink still not dry on your final draft; that is the clarity and openness of your thoughts that goes into the things that you write. Please keep up your good work

  2. Hi, I commented on your recent post, and was led to a post you wrote from 2014 titled, ‘I didn’t want to leave church.’ I’m writing a post this week titled, A Full House, about how nice it was to have to search for a seat in the sanctuary on Sunday because God’s house was full. I’d like to use a quote from your 2014 post and leave a link after the quote to your post. It is really an excellent post and I agree with it. Church is restorative. Your quote I’d like to use:
    “Church is not a social gathering for me. Sure, it provides fellowship, but more intimate relationships are experienced in small groups. Church service is restorative. After six days in the world, I need a reprieve from the depravity, the images, the diseases, disappointments, and this Babylonian culture.” Thanks so much for considering my request. Kathy

  9. So glad I came across your blog. I love the refreshing and positive feeling you give! I too am a non-fiction junkie, love to read and enjoy the simple things in life. I love seeing God shine through people and am very excited to follow your blog.


    • Your story and precious Lydia touched my heart when I discovered your blog. Thank you for coming over to mine and writing me a message. I always say if I’m doing “fiction” that means that I’m sitting in front of the TV! πŸ™‚ Thank you for following.


  10. Thanks for stopping by Sweeter Than Honey! I saw the notification earlier today and wasn’t in a place where I could peruse your own lovely blog. But I’ve been waiting all day to do so. What a treat! We have several things in common! I have 15 Β½ year-old boy/girl twins and a 14 year old daughter. πŸ™‚ Life with teens is fast-paced … and tons of fun … albeit exhausting! I’m looking forward to learning more about you and your relationship with our precious Savior!


  11. Hello and thank you again for nominating me for those awards. I actually nominated you, too. Of course you don’t have to do anything at all because you’ve been nominated already. I just love your blog and wanted to let you know! : ))


  12. Hi there. I am also a mom to three amazing kids…all boys, ages 10, 14, 16. Like you, I love the Lord, enjoy reading, and spending time with my family. (They are my favorite.) My husband is a part of the U.S. Army, and we are a proud military family, that also loves the privileges that come with being an American. I think you have a great blog. I can’t wait to see more.


    • First, my family and I sincerely thank your husband for his service to our country. We are grateful! I smiled when you wrote that spending time with your family is your “favorite”. I feel the same. Thanks for connecting :).


  13. Thanks for stopping by my blog “That Senior Year” and for the follow. I will return the favor as you appear to have a lot to say that would be good for me! I hope you stop by my place often and comment when you can. I appreciate it! Blessings on your endeavors.


  14. Thank you so much, Mama Duck, for visiting my blog and for the follow! It as always a pleasure to meet a fellow feathered friend who shares similar wholesome values. Your blog looks great, and I am looking forward to reliving the “raising teenager” years through your eyes. Mine are now grown and married… How I miss the glorious chaos!


  15. I like handwritten notes too πŸ™‚ I also like computer written notes on my blog…thank you so much for stopping by my blog and deciding to join me on my journey. It’s an honor to have you follow along. Your life sounds like an adventure, keep looking for the good things!
    Thanks again,


  16. Hello newest Spikey! I know, a bit corny, eh, but that’s the term that has come to stick for those folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike πŸ™‚

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my β€˜point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it, thrown in for good measure.

    My promise to you is not to be overbearing, just a couple of posts a day, maybe 3 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…



  17. I am so happy to discover that you are following my blog! I so enjoy making my followers my friends, so you’ve gained another follower too. (I can tell by your brilliant smile that you are as beautiful on the inside as you are on the out.)

    I am also pleased to discover that you enjoy non-fiction because I just heard that my new book, targeted toward women’s bible studies and motivating women toward true health, is “Life’s Too Short to Eat Bad Cheese . . .” (nutritional and life lessons God teaches us) should be published around July. I should be making an initial announcement in a month or so. Please pray it is well received for God’s glory and not my own. Blessings,


  18. Thank you for following my blog. As a mother of three grown children and a grandmother to seven grandchildren I am still learning how to be better at both! It’s an ongoing process just as our life in Jesus is. Looking forward to reading more about you and your family. ~ Blessings ~


  19. Hello, Moma Duck! Thanks for liking my new blog and becoming a follower. Even though it’s a little late in my day, I am really enjoying reading your blog entries. I’ll be trying out some of those quick “yummy” recipes. I am a post-it junkie too, and I’m addicted to highlighting all my non-fiction spiritual formation books. Keep smiling….there are still a few good-doers out there. Glad I ran across one! I totally can relate to the lengthy online application process. Good luck in the job hunt. Blessings!


  20. Thank your for your visit and the follow. I enjoyed getting to know you via your About. Snail mail rules especially when it delivers a hand-written note on a little piece of stationary from a Grandmother especially when it contains a recipe ;). The beach is the place for me. Just wrote a poem about how the Sea Beckons to me. Perhaps you’d enjoy. Looking forward to browsing your site. -Cheers


    • Thank you for your comment! Always nice to hear from a fellow beach-lover! Yes, a nice piece of stationary with a recipe written on it would be lovely. Your poem is wonderful and the photos are gorgeous! I look forward to your future posts. πŸ™‚
