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!

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
I stood among a patch of newly blossomed flowers. Spring was finally here. Enjoying the warmth of the sun, I picked a few to take back to the room. Poppy red, carnation pink, sky blue, deep purple, and golden yellow buds formed a beautiful bouquet.
As I turned to go, a form I can only describe as the face from the painting, The Scream¹, by Edvard Munch rose before me. Screaming, I dropped the flowers and ran as fast as I could.
But nothing. Absolutely nothing. Could have prepared me for the next moment. The room, decorated in beige and turquoise tones, was lined with dolls. All kinds of dolls. Everywhere I looked dolls of all shapes, sizes, and faces greeted me. “Oh how lovely!” I thought.
Picking one up, I admired her, touching her sweet pageant dress of blue with white flowers on it. Suddenly, her left hand grasped my thumb and her face turned ashen. Her smile formed a grin of rotten teeth as she began cackling…
Do we really know the power of Jesus in our lives? Do we really understand that just the mention of His name sends Satan and his cohorts fleeing? This isn’t just something Frank Peretti² made up to write his novels. It’s real! This is real!read more
Be still my soul before the Lord
In the quiet, in the secret place
Find the One who calls your name
Listen to His song of praise
As it fills your heart your inner being
Know He is God in everything.
“We never know when a storm will suddenly surround us. Financial situations. A runaway child. A terminal illness. It’s so important that we never doubt the assurances of God. In Mark 4:35, Jesus said to His disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” In this simple statement, Jesus was assuring them a successful voyage across the lake. He didn’t promise the disciple there wouldn’t be a storm; He just said we would make it.
No matter what trouble rises up around us, God promises that He will never leave us or forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5) He might choose to say “Quiet! Be still” to the storm or “Quiet! Be still” to our souls. Whether He calms the storm or our souls, He’s with us.” ~Wendy Pope¹read more
I wish I could tell you that the peace I felt on our trip to the beach was still embracing me. But life has this queer way of turning the tides on us. Sending us back out into the tumultuous sea.
I also wish I could tell you I took it to the Lord and I laid it at His feet each time I felt my feet lifting out from under me—the current whisking me away.
I wish I could. But I can’t.
I let my thoughts wander around. I let my heart be consumed with negative ideas and instead of surrendering, I continued to drift out to sea.
Until today. I realized I’d had enough of all of this stupidity and turned my heart to seek the Lord. He lead me to Psalms 38-43.read more
