    Horses and Purpose

    Strange title huh?  But it fits this blog. Today I went to my fabulous bible study group.  We are doing Beth Moore’s video driven bible study “David.”  She started talking today about how sometimes you need to be “alone” with God – just you and Him.   One of those times is when you “are […]

    “Nic, you need to make the price of your book something ridiculous like $12.41 or $18.27,” Amanda said laughing.  She had a point.  I am a little quirky.   And I had the power to name the price.  What would it be?  Something fun.  Something people would remember.  Something Nic.  The only number I could come […]

    And so it begins. . .

    The proof of the book came in the mail on October 4th. It looked great so I got online and pushed “GO!” Now, it is out for all to read. Two people actually got the book in the mail today. I know of one who is reading as I am typing this. Kinda nervous. But […]
