Christmas then…

I’m writing a Christmas scene set in Virginia, 1784 and it’s especially meaningful since it’s actually Christmas in the here and now. But oh, how times have changed! Can  you tell I’m in research mode? And dreaming of another frontier story set in Kentucky? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The traditional feast varied from household to household (depending on how wealthy the family was) …

Sleepless in Seattle

Despite the rush of the last few days I’ve had some blessed quiet time to read and write and am finishing the most emotionally volatile book I’ve written yet. I’m always so conflicted when I write THE END but still have months of polishing and rewriting ahead as I shine the story for you. …

Outcomes

Laura Frantz Uncategorized

Leave outcomes up to me. Follow me wherever I lead, without worrying about how it will all turn out. Think of your life as an adventure, with Me as your Guide and Companion. Live in the now, concentrating on staying in step with Me. When our paths lead to a cliff, be willing to climb it with My help. When …
