I started blogging at the release of my second book, STUCK. My tag line has been “reclaim your life” because that has been what I want to help people accomplish. I enjoyed bringing up important topics and interacting with people for the past 18 months. It was a good run, but it’s become a burden to have to write one more piece of material 1-3 times a week.
My first calling, after my family, is my ministry at Cedarbrook Church. They get my best. Lately I’ve felt very run down. I’m not sure why. I feel like I lead a very balanced life. I don’t feel stressed. But I’m beginning to wonder if I carry more stress than I realize. Something’s got to go. The first thing to go is the last thing added: my blogging.
Thanks to those of you who have followed me and especially those that took time to comment. If you want to stay in touch with me you can follow my Facebook page. I will occasionally post there but nothing extensive.
Let me close by encouraging you to reclaim your life as well. What are you doing that’s not necessary and actually causing a drain on you? How can you redirect your precious time to the important people in your life, the things that give you life, and the purposes that God created you to do? Good questions to close with.

I know I’m breaking all the rules of self-promotion and creating a platform for my books. I’ll lose my reader base and Google ranking. That’s fine. I have never been in it to make a name for myself. I just wanted to help people. I trust I will continue to do that through my church ministry and my books as they sell quietly on their own without my help.
I hope I find the time and energy to write again in the future. Peace to you.
