The Korich Family Christmas Letter. I am sending this greeting to you because I caught the flu on Christmas Eve. On Christmas day I spent the day huddled under blankets on the couch watching movies as I alternately shivered and roasted. Needless to say I haven’t any brain power to come up with a witty blog post so I am sending our annual Christmas letter as a substitute: Continue reading
Are you a morning person? A morning writer? I am a person and I am a writer, but I am not yet a morning person or a morning writer. Continue reading
Let me take you back a few years.
My friend, Sandy, could bake up a storm. She could look at a recipe and know immediately that she could make an award winning copy of whatever confection she had just read about. She was young and knew that there was nothing culinary she couldn’t accomplish. Continue reading
I wrote the following ‘letter’ to Writer’s Block during a writing prompt on Saturday morning at one of our weekly PCW meetings. This in no way portrays anything in real life, it was clearly just for fun. Enjoy!
That which does not hold at the center will collapse. Architects, scientists, mining engineers and countless other occupations know this and use it to hold it together every day. Anyone who ever played the game Jenga knows it. I challenge that American society has forgotten this principle and therefore is unaware we are dangerously close to toppling the tower.

Have you heard this one? A horse walks into a bar and the bartender asks, “Why the long face?” Not so funny when I am the horse. I’ve had a long face for months. Winter blahs? Oh yea. Midlife crisis? Maybe. Global warming? Of course, isn’t everything? Continue reading
Confession time: I HAVE NOT WANTED TO BE PRODUCTIVE FOR AGES!
Ok, that is off my chest. I wish I was being dramatic; but, alas, I am not. I have been struggling with it so badly.
Today I thought I would pull myself up by my bootstraps (except that I am wearing flats) and get in gear. I am beginning another personal blog regarding a line of my children’s ministry products. To that end, I needed to go through my stash of articles on children’s ministry and see if I can re-purpose a few. Continue reading
A few months ago I introduced you to my beagle, Willie. He’s a rambunctious creature, stubborn and sweet—sugar and spice as they used to say. He, like most of us, has his faults, but we chalk them up to personality disorder (probably a result of feeding him table food) and move on. Continue reading
Michelle here from Paddle Creek Writers. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas season and are off to a great start in the new year. I am looking forward to what the writing year will bring; including getting my second novel out.
Driving around town doing pre-Christmas errands I decided to turn on the radio to a local Christian station. The song by Casting Crowns, While You Were Sleeping, came on. The first part, if you haven’t heard it, is about Bethlehem and how when they were sleeping the Messiah was born in a stable. The second part of the song is about Jerusalem and the crucifixion of the King and then the last about America, philosophies, killing the unborn and God being crowded out of society. I thought about the world and the evil that is native to our soil and air. I thought about the good that never seems to be enough and the ugliness of all the bad. I thought about my grandsons and how I wished I could make this world a better, safer and happier place to be, because at every turn, as Casting Crowns sing, we have no room for the King.
