One of the first things I learned from the Amish was focus. Now that may sound a little strange, I mean how focused can you be in a house with upwards of 10 children? But when I have visited Amish homes, I am immediately struck by how Continue reading
Happy New Year!
First of all, if you already received this blog–my apologies. I preset it for 2018 instead of 2019. That won’t be the first time I’ll get the year wrong this month … so here goes for take 2. 🙂
Happy new year! I’m one of “those” people who love the thought of a brand new year. I can’t wait to put up my new wall calendar. I start a new journal. I set goals and list projects and make Continue reading
Just a short blog today. I wanted to wish you a very merry Christmas. Also I wanted to thank you for allowing me into your mailbox this year. You are more of a encouragement to me than you can possibly imagine. Writing is an awesome gig, but it’s also a solitary pursuit, and you each help to make that journey more Continue reading
Today is my book birthday! I’m so excited that Amish Christmas Memories is now available in stores. (The ebook will release on 12-1, so hang on dear e-readers.)
I can’t say that in 2010 I imagined releasing 30 books in 8 years. At the time, I was thrilled that someone wanted to publish A Simple Amish Christmas. I think it’s fitting and right that my 30th Continue reading

This past Sunday, My church had a “The Church has left the building” event. It was, in a word, Continue reading
Some of you may have seen my announcement on Facebook that I’ve signed a contract with Harlequin/Love Inspired for 6 additional books in my Indiana Amish Brides series. I’m beyond excited and grateful. So today, I thought I’d share with you a peek into what’s Coming Soon … Continue reading
Have you ever felt like you needed a little bit of a rest? I imagine we all feel that way from time to time. Last week I turned book #31 into my editor…that’s 31 books since 2010. Whew! My brain felt a little frazzled. So I’ve decided to Continue reading
It’s here! The dog days of summer … or is it “dog daze.” Regardless, it feels like we’re melting in the south. So I thought I’d do a blog on how the Amish survive summer because as Continue reading
