God’s Mysterious Ways—Part 2

How do we discern God’s Mysterious Ways? How do we know it’s Him, and not our own thought? @donnalhsmith #GodsMysteriousWays #SaySomethingEternal #GodsCallOnMyLife

God’s Mysterious Ways—Part 1

A few months ago, I decided to take a break from blogging. It’s been a good break. I focused on my studies, finished my third novel, taught at a Christian writer’s conference, went to the New Jersey shore for my birthday, got my Medicare card, and have been celebrating my freedom in Christ. But now, I feel the urge to write again—to “say” something. @donnalhsmith #GodsMysteriousWays #SaySomethingEternal #GodsCallOnMyLife #GodisAmazing

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 summer—I’m taking a bit of a break.

I’m only going to write when I feel I have something to say. Something important. Something eternally significant.

Feel free to enjoy the archives—which I know you do. What is it about “Stuck—A Winter Disaster Story” that intrigues you readers so much? It’s summertime, and people are still reading it. I am pleased and amused.

And let me know what you’d like to see on this blog. I’ve kind of changed the focus, and I may do so again—but I love feedback. Id’ love to know what you like about the website, and what you don’t.

In the meantime, may you have a blessed summer!

Miracles, Signs & Wonders—Part 3

I’m getting to the point that wherever I am, if someone needs prayer, I’ll pray. It’s kind of a cop-out to say, “I’ll pray for you” if you don’t pray right then and there. #miraclesatwritersconference #prayer #amwriting @donnalhsmith

Miracles, Signs & Wonders—Part 2

There’s a lot I could say about this, but I’m going to just share what miracles I’ve seen in my lifetime. Have you seen a blind woman get her sight back? Has someone you prayed for received a cessation of pain? Increased mobility? #miracles #amwriting @donnalhsmith

Miracles, Signs, & Wonders—Part 1

What is a miracle? How would you define it? Can anyone do a miracle? Be a miracle to someone else? And, what’s the “greatest” miracle of all? How can you get a miracle if you need it? Let’s explore. #miracles #amwriting @donnalhsmith

Webster’s defines a miracle as: a strange thing, something to wonder at, something wonderful. 1) An event or action that apparently contradicts known scientific laws and is hence thought to be due to supernatural causes, especially an act of God. 2) a remarkable event or thing, marvel. 3) a wonderful example.
