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!

“It’s such a hard and holy thing (in our minds), when Jesus took it (every sin) by Himself, all the lights went out.” ¹
Perhaps it’s too deep to think on. Perhaps this part of it all, is too much for us as humans to comprehend. Perhaps it’s why we fixate on the physical part of the crucifixion—His death—but we can’t stare at the spiritual part of it.
Beaten. Ridiculed. Spat upon. Nailed to a cross. Unrecognizable. They continued to mock Him as He hung there for everyone to stare at.
Still…there is one agony remaining I think we truly miss.read more
An intimate and inspiring chronicle of a triumphant journey of faith.
Her name is Traveler, and she comes from a long line of Sojourners. Accepting a compass from her father, she sets out on her own journey, on the usual path. Her travels take her on a new direction, however, when she meets a faithful Companion who invites her to leave the broad path on which she is traveling. She simply has to choose to go through the little narrow gate waiting in the distance. Traveler does not realize that this choice will take her to new heights of jubilation but also will bring new experiences of desperation and fear. From the amazement of Long Look Mountain to the hesitation at the City of Rest, Traveler continues to learn.
Soon, though, her path changes. Now spinning in the midst of pain and self-doubt, she searches for strength and understanding from her new Companion. Will this new assurance be enough to get her through The Forest of Fears and experience the supposed joy awaiting her at the Homeplace? Traveler must face the reality that to succeed in her journey, she will be forced to endure heartbreak and testing unlike anything she has yet experienced.
So often we fear the road ahead. We become afraid of stepping out and doing what God is asking us to do. But, look at our verse for this week and notice what the Lord says in Joshua 3:4 (and I’m paraphrasing):
Stay a ways back from the ark. Keep your distance because you haven’t gone this way before. You need to be able to see which way to go.
In other words, what Jesus is saying to us through Joshua is, “Follow Me so you can see clearly which way to go because you have never gone this way before.”
Fear not. Be strong and courageous. And go in the strength of the Lord.read more
