About Me

My photo
Anacortes, Washington, United States
This is my testimony - my testimony of faith and lack thereof; of the rising and falling of hopes and dreams; of beliefs and disbelief's; of tremendous heartache and human folly; of reaching out and stepping out when all I want at times is to is pull back and step away. At the age of 30 I was diagnosed with a very rare neurological condition called Post-traumatic Syringomyelia (PTS). Please visit my post on PTS. One of my goals is to increase awareness of this terminal condition. Broken to Grace is not yet released. Follow this blog to receive an email when the final release date is announced. God bless, Ronda

Calling out for cheer and prayers to push me along!

Call out! I need my friends to assist me in staying on focus, on track, on the path - of finishing this BIG edit. I need 10-12 full work days to finish. That's harder than it sounds. I had to break away for awhile after I sent off the 53 pages to the publisher, and now it is time to kick it all out and finish it in full. I need some cheerleaders, and I need to hide out for awhile. (And I need a maid!) Send your cheers and prayers in creative ways while I'm in reclusion ♥
Thanksgiving in reclusion should be interesting.
But Jessica and Luke will both be home and we'll still get our much desired family time.
My kids are behind me 100%

Publishers are awaiting this full edited version. And even it they weren't ~ it is simply time.
The End


  1. Focus when and where you can. It'll all be fine. Know that.
    I want to share a quote from Neale Donald Walsch, the lovely gent who wrote, among other things, "Conversations with God."
    ‎"Feeling good" is your way of telling yourself that your last thought was truth, that your last word was wisdom, that your last action was love. To measure how highly you have evolved, simply look to see what makes you "feel good."
    So simple, isn't it? Truth, wisdom and love. Doh.
    Here's to feeling good!!!!

    You inspire me in ways I cannot express.

  2. Wonderful quote, Morine! I'm holding onto that one. Thank you so much.

    Inspiration is a circular event, and grows deeper roots with each volley.

  3. What a project, it's no wonder you feel overwhelmed! I'd offer words of encouragement, but if you've gotten that far I have no doubt you'll complete it...so keep it up!

  4. Thanks Kat!
    Not overwhelmed, but definitely feel it is time. New deadline...Week of December 6th.

  5. I seriously need a housekeeper during this phase. A live-in for two weeks - starting now. I've tried finding one - but no luck yet. I guess I will have to choose to let my house 'go', let my son fend for himself, and hide out in my library upstairs with my manuscript, a pen, and my laptop. Because trying to do both, regular life and edit the book, is never going to accomplish the task at hand.
    Praying for the strength to refocus and stay focused. I beleive I am making it harder than it has to be. So, with that knowledge - I step out in faith that God will supply what I need as I need it. And remember that Him giving isn't enough - I have to reach out and claim it.
