Two Worlds

It’s been nearly two whole years since I wrote a blog post. At that time, I decided I wouldn’t write another post until I had something to say. Well, I finally have lots to say! This has been a website for writers and ministry. The main focus will be on ministry and healing, and what […]

Summer Break – A Time to Pause & Reflect

I’ve been blogging regularly since 2009. I’ve had several blogs on a couple different platforms. I started this blog in 2014 to show my writing journey to publication. I made it. I’m published. But I have other interests and things God is preparing me for. So rather than publish every week, at least for this […]

Transitions—Part 5

I’m gonna wrap this little series up this week—with a poem I wrote. I wonder what I’ll write about next. Maybe a combination of different things. But one thing is certain—I’m moving forward with life, and I’m not going back. @donnalhsmith #transition #refreshingstreams #amwriting TWEETABLE

Happy BLOG Birthday—Part 5

Today, I’m going to post from my series two years ago on APD. It stands for Avoidance Personality Disorder, and although I was never formally diagnosed, I exhibited or felt most of the signs. Otherwise known as Root of Rejection or Rejection Syndrome, I had this from before birth—having the personality type more affected by […]

Happy BLOG Birthday—Part 4

The all-time highest views of any post is part of the series I did on Formatting and Submitting Your Manuscript. I took Jerry Jenkins’ Christian Writers’ Guild, and I’d purchased so many wonderful writing resources, that when I started this blog, I wanted to share them. #amwriting #BLOGbirthdayFeb172014 #fiveyears @donnalhsmith @a3writers This post is from […]

Happy BLOG Birthday—Part 2

It’s funny. I couldn’t think of a thing to blog about, but a little thought crossed my mind. How long have I been doing this blog? I remembered starting it toward the beginning of 2014. And I wanted to talk about the process of writing a novel and getting it published. #amwriting #BLOGbirthdayFeb172014 #fiveyears @donnalhsmith […]

Happy BLOG Birthday—Part 1

Nearly five years ago, and next week we’ll celebrate more, I started this blog. I’d been blogging on another platform with other emphases. But I started this one after I closed my homemade organic chocolate truffle business in 2014. I’d been making chocolates for seven years. I was getting older and wanted a change. I […]

BLOG NEWS – January 2019

Thank you for reading this blog. I appreciate each and every one of you. From time to time, I either expand or cut back the number of posts per week I publish. For several years now (and the blog is only four years old), mostly I publish twice a week. On Tuesday, I publish an […]

Heart Full of Love––Part IV

Malachi 3:10 says, “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you,” says the LORD of heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! […]
