News! (And a Giveaway, for Moms!!)

Today I have some fun news to share!  I have been invited to join an amazing group of women as a contributor on Sally Clarkson's blog,  Writing alongside the likes of blogging superstars like Ann Voskamp and Sarah Mae is humbling and intimidating; I feel completely out of my league.  But I'm also thrilled by the opportunity, because I know the Good Lord started opening up doors years ago to lead up to this.  My first article will post on November 12.  Yay!  If you're not familiar with Sally or the MomHeart ministry and are looking for encouragement and wisdom as a mother, please make your way to and soon!!

In connection to this news, I'd like to share with you that is merging with Sally's blog, to free Sally to do more book writing, without leaving too much dead time at  To celebrate the 6th anniversary of her blog and the blog merger, Sally is hosting a giveaway of three gift sets, which include two of her foundational books on motherhood and a sweet mom heart necklace.  God used reading those books to change me and our family in dramatic ways, for the good.  So, I encourage you to pop on over to and get your name in to win!  If I win, perhaps I'll turn around and host a giveaway myself, since I already have them.  Oooh, yeah, that would be fun!

And finally, in totally unrelated news, (but giving me a reason to add a picture to this post), the Pittsburgh Pirates are in a play-off game tomorrow for the first time since 1992.  Let's go Bucs!


  1. Heather! What an answer to years of prayer! I am so very excited for you and what God is doing in you, faithful one! I'll be able to say, I knew you when... Love you!

    1. Thanks!! Girl, I just love you, too. Why is TX so far away? Or should I ask why PA is so far away? Either way, I wish you lived next door. :)
