Morning Star of Wittenberg

This blog is for writing-related stuff, which, to me, includes reading, too. So, although I did not blog about the CRAZY LARGE number of non-Lutheran homeschooling resources about the Reformation anniversary that flooded my gmail inbox, I did find one additional-to-CPH Reformation children’s book I particularly enjoy: Katharine von Bora: The Morning Star of Wittenberg.

There is another great Lutheran children’s book on the market now: God Loves Me Such That He Would Give by LCMS Pastor Gaven Mize. He and his wife, Ashlee, started working on this while they were expecting their precious firstborn (awwww), but now it’s a great gift for any child!

Cross Makers

Here’s a somewhat random new find for my list of Lutheran crafters, artists, etc: The Cross Makers. Volunteers make little crosses you can have in your pocket and give away. Awesome!

I also recently added the Lutheran Pub, which has some neat things to offer Lutheran shoppers.

30 Days

Blessed Reformation Day! Happy 500 years! Happy Hallow’s Eve, depending on when you’re reading this! 🙂 And, happy almost NaNoWriMo! (Shudder) After going from one busy, here is another busy to temporarily consider. Ha! Anyway, below is an interesting and thoughtful alternative to a frenzied 30 days approach: “How to Write a Novel in 30 Days.”

I do also want to say that–largely over the weekend–I may have received enough info and anecdotes for two weeks of blog posts! Woo hoo for me! 😀 And, hopefully that means “Meet, Write, and Salutary” can be especially enjoyable as we transition into colder weather.

Commemoration of Hymnwriters

Happy Commemoration of Hymnwriters Philipp Nicolai, Johann Heermann and Paul Gerhardt! 🙂 I know. You all made cakes to honor it, didn’t you. Still it’s a good day to honor the writers who came before us and have blessed generations with their powerful texts and biblical messages! Raise a glass or a song!

In more Reformational news, I’ve got a selection of Reformation videos to share with you today.
