I “think” and she “letters”

churchI have a poem up today at The Well, InterVarsity’s online blog for women in graduate school and beyond. The poem is titled “Let Me Think.” While you’re at The Well, check out some of its other content. It’s fast becoming one of my favorite sites.

I’m also sharing some of daughter Em’s hand lettering today. She, Judy (the older of our two international student “daughters”), and I spent a LOT of time at our church during Holy Week. Judy, Em, and I went to every single service, spending nearly 20 hours at church between Maundy Thursday and Easter Day. It was wonderful, and Em took her notes from a few of the services and created a booklet. The only page I’m not allowed to share with you is the Easter Festival page (it’s a service at our church on the Saturday before Easter) because some ink from the facing page bled through.

Try out “The Well”

Hi Readers,

I just received word that one of my pieces (it’s an old blog post that I adapted) has just been published at “The Well,” which is Intervarsity’s Web site for women in graduate school. Here’s the link: http://thewell.intervarsity.org/blog/value-hank.

A friend of mine told me about “The Well” and suggested I submit some work to it. I checked it out and found it to be a very encouraging Web site for me. I did submit a piece (obviously), but I’ve continued to regularly visit the site because it has so many good, thoughtful articles, devotionals, and interviews. You might want to check it out for yourself.

One last thing: my apologies for not updating in so long. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks and the flu thing I got (that half of Chicago got, it seems) has hung on for a very long time.

Thanks for reading,
