Today is a big release day for my friend, Lutheran author Vanessa Rasanen! She’s a great friend, blogger, and sometime journalist. Plus, you know, there’s her family and job and being married into the Army. Her debut novel, releasing today, is Soldier On (Hearts on Guide Book 1)
Ladies and gentlemen, I feel like it’s been AGES since I last blogged. There is so much I hope to remember and write! Be sure to stay tuned, this week especially! I’ll start catching up here with a little somber something from Australia, where I was visiting my sister and her precious family.
Happy Commemoration of Philipp Nicolai, Johann Heermann and Paul Gerhardt!
I’m back from a tremendous vacation and hope to be back to blogging every day starting Monday. AND, I have additional inspiration to do so because of at least TWO AWESOME BOOK RELEASES NEXT WEEK! Yay!!!
I’m nearing the end of my second year blogging here. It’s gone pretty well and I’m pleased with how consistently I’ve been able to post five times a week.
Now that I have resource pages up, it also means the website is helpful even apart from posts. That’s been very satisfying to me. I think because it means I spread the word about others and don’t just harp on my own words. 🙂 Suits me fine.
Anyway, I’m going to take a technology break. Probably for two weeks or so. I know plenty of others who advocate the practice but, lol, I don’t want to try it during Advent and Lent when everyone else is doing it!

“Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers” (ESV). How can people complain about watching doctrine? Let’s take a deep breath and delight in it as the God-given gift it is. 🙂 Thanks, Church, and thanks be to God.

The “Meet, Write, and Salutary” blog encourages Lutherans to write. At the same time, maybe this website is better understood as a reading, writing, and resources place.
