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

A Long Lost Friend ~ #Article #Magazine #Writing ~

Such a wonderful, beautiful and full-of-talent community I live in - and now we have our own magazine. Thanks to the vision of Chris Terrell, owner of How It Works and the Heart of Anacortes, and the design work of Ken Davenport - we have created the inaugural edition of Anacortes Magazine. 

Being a part of this is a blessing, and writing my feature article was a great experience. To see it in print, with the photographs of the children I wrote about, was an inspirational moment in my life. 

Please open the link to read "A Long Lost Friend" by Ronda Rae Franklin. (pages 19, 20 & 21)


  1. Ronda i am blown awawy by this article, your choice of photograph and the sentiment. I work with young children and often feel that life and eduction whitewashes over what gifts we have and who we are when we are born. Very impressed by your magazine and wish you good luck

    1. I'm just seeing this for some reason. Thank you very much for your kind words! What I do, I do from the heart. Isn't that how everything should be?!
