Faith at Work: Fun with Kaleidoscopes

Having Fun with Kaleidoscopes

It’s Labor Day Weekend. Wanna have some fun? Let’s make a kaleidoscope!
I love kaleidoscopes. They’ve been one of my favorite toys since I was a kid. I'd play with them for hours on end, turning the tube or dial...fascinated by the incredible designs. And then I grew up. The fetish faded but not the memories.
Recently, I was driving through the Black Hills with my family. (Nothing new here. They’re in my backyard.) But this particular day, we stopped in a little shop, and my eyes landed on something I hadn’t seen in years…a Nature Kaleidoscope Kit. I snapped it up. My good intentions didn't get very far because it's been collecting dust on my shelf ever since. Well, now it’s time to shake that baby off and start spinnin’.
Wanna join me? Really? Well then...let’s go!
First things first I guess. We need to gather the supplies. 
This is what my kit has in it. If you can't locate the exact items, find something close. Use your imagination. That'…

Renee Reviews The Secret Things by Peggy Trotter

5 Star Faithful Review

The Secret ThingsbyPeggy Trotter
About the Book, The Secret Things:
Deep in the Smokey Mountains, secrets abound. Jerrica Rankin doesn't know who she is. But she's certain she isn't the woman in the wedding photo. So who is the stranger on her porch gripping this incriminating picture? How will Jerrica conquer her panic attacks and find her identity to prove he's wrong? Brock Langston buried his wife three years ago. But he finds her, deep in the Smokey Mountains, very much alive and denying who she is. How could she have forgotten their relationship and why didn't anyone contact him? Is Jerrica really his wife? Or an impostor?

The Faithful Review by Renee Blare:
Peggy Trotter has written an emotional and mental page-turner that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Jerrica opens the door and confronts her past...a past she's buried in the recesses of her mind. Brock discovers a future he believed to be lost only to realize the road ahead …

Caryl McAdoo's on the Coffee Corner

I'm excited to welcome fellow Christian author and friend, Caryl McAdoo to the blog this week. It's going to be an exciting discussion about her writing and releases. She's also planning an AMAZING GIVEAWAY! Check it out at the end of the interview. Are you ready? Get set. Let's go!

Renee: Hi there, Caryl! Welcome to the Coffee Corner. I can't wait to get started. I love your books and am still amazed by the amount of books you produce each year. I wish I could do that! Why don't we begin our excursion into your world with a journey down memory lane? How long have you been writing?
Caryl: Thanks for having me, Renee. I’ve been writing since the mid-eighties when my husband, an avid reader, read a book called Noah that he claims should have been Joe and the Big Boat as it had nothing that pertained to the well-known Noah of the Bible. It made him believe that if that au…

Darlene Franklin
Stops by Inspirational Moments

I'm so excited! Great writer and friend, Darlene Franklin is here. She surprised me by stopping by Inspirational Moments! She's also giving away one of her books so make sure you check out the details after our chat.

Renee: Wow, Darlene, I'm so glad you're here! I don't have an interview ready, but we can wing it. I'll get my handy dandy hat here and toss some questions in it. Are you ready?
Darlene: I'm excited to be here, and that sounds like fun. I sure am. Go for it!
Renee: First question is: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Darlene: It’s a toss-up. I’ve always wanted to go to Australia. For that matter, I’d love to make it to California!       But my traveling days are over. If I could make one trip only, I would return to East Boothbay, Maine, with my family. For my grandchildren to see my family’s home and to scatter my mo…

Falling Rock: A Short Story

Falling Rock: A Short Story             Once upon a time, in a small Indian village, a brave warrior called Falling Rock fell in love with the chief’s daughter. She returned his love and they went before the chief to ask for permission to wed.
“You say you love my daughter. Is this true?” The old chief looked to his youngest daughter, the most beautiful of his children.
“Yes, Father. He loves me and I love him. Please let us marry.” Her small hands grasped his gnarly ones and he narrowed his beady eyes at the warrior.
“What do you have to offer for this union, young warrior?”
He watched as the bravery seemed to seep out of the man at his question.
“I have nothing, my chief. I do not own any animals or fancy cloth. I can offer my service and my loyal protection.” His black eyes met the daughter’s. “To you and yours for the rest of my days.”
“I have that already, my man. I wish you to complete me a task. If you are successful, you will have permission to marry my daughter. Do you agree?” The c…
