Rumor Has It

I was delighted to meet Author Marc Brown
Rumor has it— paperback and hardback books are old hat, passé, no longer read. I don’t think so. Over the weekend, my husband and I ventured out to Books by the Banks, an annual book and author event. People of all ages milled around tables filled with books, yes— real paper books. Authors and illustrators visited with their fans, autographed books, and smiled for photographs.

Just being in the same room as so many authors inspired me to continue working on my WIP. I love the written word, whether on paper or an e-reader. I use both and believe both formats will be around for a long, long time.

Growing Spiritually

I love when a sermon speaks loud and clear to me. Yesterday our minister shared five measures of spiritual maturity. Have you ever wondered what a person devoted to a relationship with Jesus looks like? I have, especially when I look in the mirror. That's why I want to share these great goals for a more spiritual life.

Spiritual Maturity Markers

  • Stay positive under pressure, James 1:2
  • Be sensitive to the needs of others, 1 John 3:17
  • Live as a peacemaker, Matthew 5:9, 1 Thessalonians 4:11
  • Be patient Psalm 27:14
  • Be prayerful, 1 Thessalonians 5:1

How about it? What do you see as a goal for spiritual maturity?
