Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m going to try another method of giveaway. To enter this Strong as Death Giveaway, comment on this post for a chance to win one copy of Strong as Death: Selected Poems by Rev. Chris Matthis (LCMS). I will mail the complimentary copy to the winner after randomly selecting a comment after Friday, September 23rd.

And, for now, here’s a little writing exercise (for you grownups) and a writing contest for homeschooled kiddos ages 7-19. The Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA for short) has three creative angles that will be sure to be a lot of fun, whatever your age.

That blog has been a Lutheran voice comforting the infertile and wrestling with difficult questions for five years now! And, who hasn’t been assigned to write an ode to your mother? (Actually that practice is newer than you likely realize, in part due to the romanticizing of motherhood when maternal mortality was so high in the 19th century or so.)
