Read about the story below and leave a comment and email address to enter to win. Hi Tanya. Hi, and thank you, Gail, so much for hosting me on your blog today!  The pleasure's mine. Tell us a little about yourself. I’m a write-at-home mom of four. I moved around a lot as a child (my dad was in the military and then he had a job that transferred him often) before settling in Georgia. I attended the University of Georgia and graduated with an A.B.J. in Journalism and a J.D. degree in Law, and it’s also where I met my husband.  When I’m not reading or writing, I love classic movies, especially those with Cary Grant or Jimmy Stewart. I also love walking and exploring Georgia. Cloudland Canyon and Tallulah Gorge are two of my favorites. You can often find me reading with a cup of tea at my side. Lots of writers were avid readers as children. What about you? If

Looking In The Window: The Weight of a Tiny Acorn

  I heard something hit my deck like a ten-pound weight. I looked out the window, and there lay an acorn.  So, how much could an acorn weigh? I looked it up. Roughly, not quite an ounce for a small one and around three ounces for a large one. They’ve continued to pound the boards on my deck, and it’s covered in nuts from our mighty oak trees.  As a Christian I can see myself as one of those tiny acorns and ask what difference could I possibly make in a world filled with so many people with so many opinions. But today as another acorn hit a different voice spoke to me. Armed with the strength and power of the Gospel, how much weight could a Christian carry if he or she spreads the Good News over the world like millions of acorns? “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that the

Looking Out The Window: Introducing Following the Sparrows, A New Book By Karen Malley, a Scientist By Day and Writer By Night

  A Warm Welcome to Karen Malley Hi Karen, first, tell us a little about yourself. Sure! I’m a scientist by day, and a writer by night. I live in Southeastern Pennsylvania with my husband and two teenage sons. I love spending time with my family, especially outdoors. We enjoy camping and hiking. We also spend a lot of time playing board games. When I was in graduate school, my husband also went back to school and we didn’t have much money. Because of that, we spent a lot of time playing games, since it was free entertainment.  Were you an avid reader as a child? What did you read? Oh, definitely. I’ve always loved to read. In elementary school we used to have readathons where you’d go to the neighbors and they would give you a donation for every book you read, and the money went to support multiple sclerosis research. My neighbors learned after the first year not to pledge more than a dime per book, since I was known to read about 100 books!  As a child I enjoyed Dr. Seuss, The Berenst
