Thank you, Cathy! [[[[Hugs back]]]] I’ve missed you too!
Please pray for my Dad. He’s a godly man, but he is missing his sweetheart.
As a pastor, many people seek his prayerful counsel, but often people forget that he is a man grieving and struggling too.
I will yes. My family’s been praying for all of you with me since we got the news and so the Carmelites in Mom’s formation. It’s so hard losing someone who’s been a part of you so long… and it must be so difficult for your dad with so many people coming to him for support and being so used to his strength in prayer and in God that they neve…[Read more]
Thank you, Livi and Neasa.
I have been off for a while but am finally getting back on the SE Forums.
Thank you for your prayers and concern.
May you both have a very blessed day. My mom finished her race well*.

Very good story, Dawn!
It had me engaged with it throughout.
I think I liked Fabian the best. He had admirable qualities and a consistent action following his beliefs, and that is always refreshing.
Yes, it does count as Sci-Fi.
1. does this even count as sci-fi and how realistic do i need to be to write a sci-fi? There is no h…[Read more]

I am so looking forward to reading your fantastic tales! May the Creator shine His light in every reflection you put to pen and key!
I love that both of you are discussing this. Mind if I silently take notes?
Dr. Ben Carson is a Seventh-Day Adventist. I love the man. Such wisdom and a love for our Lord.
My book has a character in it who is a Messianic Jew.
We have had a Messianic Jew come to speak at our church.
There is so much in Jewish…[Read more]
Today, my Mom entered Life with no end. Today, she experienced peace everlasting. Today, we said goodbye for now, but we will see you again in a glorified body that is energized with God’s restoration. That leaps in Jesus’s arms and is hugged in everlasting arms with the precious wounds that purchased her glorious entrance into Eternity. Today,…[Read more]
Sorry I haven’t responded in the last few days. Both my parents came down with Covid. My dad is back home and over it, but my mom is in serious condition in ICU on a ventilator, so I am not sure she will make it. God’s grace is meeting us here, but we a…[Read more]
To record, I use “Voice Record Pro” on my i-Phone. [The App is free in the App Store]
To edit the resulting file, I upload the recorded file to my MS One Drive and use a free program called “Audacity” to remove background noises, amplify the audio wave, create sound effects and modulate the vocals. Once…[Read more]

Thank you for posting the link to your poem. I loved it! You are very gifted.
Yes. It has a main title (Excavatia) [sounds similar to King Arthur’s famous mystical sword] and each of the four planned books have a distinctive subtitle. (You’ll remember the same was true of the 3 parts of “The Lord of the Rings”)
I agree completely. Sometimes when meeting new people, we just don’t know where they stand in regard to that.
It sickens me to hear people praising socialism and communism and extolling its virtues as desirable when I know what a deceptive road it is. People need to soberly look at “real” history, with the lens of God’s perspective,…[Read more]
@calidris , my wife’s name is Olga, and she told me that they lived in fear that the American’s were going to bomb them, so they conducted military drills at school and even showed me pictures of her with a practice rifle. The soviet government scared them out of their wits about the evils of the decadent west. But, at the same time, we were s…[Read more]
I am so very proud of you!
Yes, I absolutely understand. There is no way to be sure. Be careful out there.
I well know that period, and my wife is from Russia (she is a Christian and translated for American Missionaries when she was in college there), so I have a perspective from both sides of the Cold War and the a…[Read more]
Very nice to meet you!
I am a LotR fan as well and have the Extended Collection of the DVDs to get the most out of the movies, as well as owning the books by the Lore Master (Mr. Tolkien) himself. I am a big fan of both he and C.S. Lewis and of their predecessor George MacDonald.
It is interesting that you enjoy The…[Read more]
I think, since you are doing a trilogy, one thing that seems to work well is a unifying title, with each installment as a subtitle.
One to two-word titles seems to work for unity very well in the market.
Think of it this way:
1. Dune – by Frank Herbert – keyword: “Dune”
2. Star Wars – by George Lucas – keyword: “Star…[Read more]
Well hello, Emily!
Welcome! Welcome! I am so glad that you are joining our band of brothers and sisters in the pursuit of creative expressions.
I am one of the “ancient ones” here, but don’t let that alarm you. My Jedi skills are still being sorted out, and I still have very much to learn, even though I have been at it many,…[Read more]
Rose and Cathy,
Did you know that Audacity does have features to change your voice or make it sound like it is in a cave, or speed it up, or slow it down? These features are under the Effects Menu at the top. Simply highlight the area on the audio wave that you want to “effect”, and choose from the E…[Read more]
So, originally I said about 20 minutes…but (if you’ve seen Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl), you’d know that the rules are akin to the “Pirates’ Code”, more like guidelines, when it comes down to it…or suggestions, take your pick. 😉 (I know. I know. I’m a bit of a rogue, too.)
I did, in…[Read more]
Absolutely. Here is the essence of what is happening, as the Apostle Paul writes to the Corinthian Christians:
So then, dear friends, since we have these promises, let us cleanse ourselves from every impurity of the flesh and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God. … For even if I grieved you…
