I normally publish new articles approximately twice a week according to the themes below, but right now I’m taking a summer hiatus. I am still sending out my monthly newsletter The Quiet Life Quarterly, though, so be sure to sign up here so you don’t miss an issue!

#MentorsOnMonday — I read a lot. In many ways, the authors I read are like mentors to me, so on Mondays I’ll share insights from the “mentors” who have spoken into my life. And sometimes I’ll write book reviews because I love to share good books with my friends!

#InterviewsOnTuesday — I never want my website to be all about me. I want to use this space to share the incredible work some amazing people are doing. Through a Q and A format, you’ll hear from some of your favorite authors as they give a more behind-the-scenes glimpse into their writing.

#WritingOnWednesday — One of my favorite things to do is teach the craft of writing in university classrooms and at conferences, so I’m devoting Wednesdays to all things writing. Sometimes the articles will contain practical how-to advice, and other times they’ll delve more into the life of a writer.

#ThreeOnThursday — As part of my aim to lift up the voices of others, I share three articles every Thursday that have spoken to me in some way. Sometimes the three links will have a consistent theme, and other times they may be links to inspiring songs or other kinds of posts. I like to get creative here.

#FindingHopeOnFriday — We live in a world in desperate need of hope and light, beauty and truth. On Fridays, I’ll speak to a current topic that’s being discussed either in the news or other social spheres, with the sole purpose of bringing hope to what may feel hopeless.
