Free to Paraphrase Himself

Have I mentioned that my husband is brilliant? I respect and admire him in so many ways. His latest thought I have to share, although I daresay entire dissertations could be written about this thesis and its consequences: The Holy Spirit is free to paraphrase Himself as He sees fit.

Rick Riordan

Shelley Shephard Gray

Looking for more Lutheran authors? Me, too, as always! 🙂 So today I’ll point to Shelley Shephard Gray, who writes about “regular, likeable people in extraordinary situations who just happen to be Amish.”

She is a prolific author so be ready to feed your Amish appetite if you’ve got one!

Amish lit certainly has a big following! Woo hoo for another living Lutheran author!

When Someone Dies (for children)

Julie Stiegemeyer is, by all accounts, someone I should have met. Maybe I have. She even looks familiar! Do you ever feel that way? I think we even lived in the same city for a spell!

But I’ve decided to cut it short. (Too many drafts too close to the deadline! ;)) Maybe I can write about it again, more generally, later. Continue reading
