Bridging the gap between writing and publishing
Hi, I’m Marcie and I’m so thrilled you are visiting with me today. Thank you for stopping by.
It is my hope you will feel at home here in my little corner of the world. I’m a lover of sweet tea and chocolate. But if you prefer coffee, then bring your own cup, pull up a chair, and let’s see if we can help you cross the bridge to being the best writer you can be.
Did I mention I’m a lover of poetry? I find that it best expresses my love of God and helps me find my way through difficult places. My book, Broken and Spilled Out is my collection of poetry and prayers for the hurting soul. Besides chronicling my own insights, my readers can also journal and record insights of their own. You can get your copy here.
Should you simply need some encouragement, I invite you to meet me over at my blog Heart Thoughts.
I’m so glad you’re here and look forward to connecting with you!

God never told us life would be easy. Somehow the world believes Christians have it easier than they do. But we know better. We have weren’t born just yesterday and didn’t just fall off the turnip truck. No, we know our Christian walk is no picnic at times.
I have friends aching to have a day of boredom. I have friends just surviving until barely making it through each moment. I have friends struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Our own family has its own barriers and walls that need tearing down. As much as we’d like the world to see us as perfect people, we know there is no such thing. Only God is perfect.
I’ve longed for a breakthrough in several situations over the past several months. Weary beyond comprehension at times, I feel a weight upon me so heavy I can barely breathe.
But I’m learning, slowly, oh so slowly, that the way to a breakthrough is not in my own strength and power, but in the power and might of the Lord.read more
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
“The God who lived in Moses’s time is just the same today.”
He (Phil Keaggy) makes this statement a few more times, each time changing the name in it. For example, in the next chorus he sings, “the God who lived in David’s time is just the same today.”
But no matter what name from the Bible we might put in there, the idea and feeling is just the same to me.
God never changes.read more
She was brave.
She doesn’t think she was brave. But she was.
I know she feels like a failure. I know she feels like she let me down—and herself. I know she thinks she’s ruined her young life.
None of those could be further from the truth.
The fact is, she gave it a try. She gave it a shot. Was it everything we hoped it would be? No. Are we disappointed? Most definitely.
Isn’t that the way it is? We get a victory in our life, but instead of living victoriously, we wallow in the reasons why it all went wrong. We give in to the bad thoughts. We dwell on the negative.
But what if, instead of letting our thoughts drag us down, keeping us from living an abundant life, we focus our attention on Jesus? What if, instead of wallowing and pouting, we open our Bibles and turn our thoughts to the truth?read more
