Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. I started backwards with my reading. Started with "C" and am now on "B". This was a great post. Made a lot of sense. Balance and I aren't always on the same page, sometimes not even the same book. Gotta work on it.

  2. I totally agree, Shelley. It takes effort to keep things in sync, but it's well-worth it!

  3. Great post! I think finding balance is not only difficult, it's also one of those things that requires constant monitoring and adjustment. It's not a one-time thing, but a lifetime…well, balancing act! 🙂

  5. Ha! It's January 17th and I've been balanced for almost 24 hours. 🙂 Yep, that's how it goes for me–one day at a time. Dianawww.pencildancer.com

  6. Balance is so difficult. I'm sure that's why the Father gave us instruction about it. It's so easy to choose what we're comfortable with. Whether it's food or work or even particular friends. I think of it like trying to keep my kids well-rounded. They'd be happy playing on their computer all day long, but outside play, chores, schoolwork, and social activities all have their places. I haven't arrived, though! Hence the chosen topic. I still struggle with burning out because I spend too much time and effort in one area.

  7. Right now I'm just intrigued. I just picked it up because it looked interesting, but I was drawn in by paragraph three. I think I'm going to like it, but it's hard to tell what's going on at this point. He calls it an allegory. It certainly leans toward fantasy – not usually what I read, but this is more in line with Frank Peretti.

  9. This is a thought-provoking post. My life is definitively unbalanced with work weighing me down. Working to make changes.

  10. Great points! Sugar is one of the things I often over-indulge in. I use the excuse that I'm allergic to so much else and have a high metabolism, but that doesn't mean it's good for me.BTW, you mentioned on Patty's blog that you're reading Robin Parrish's trilogy. What do you think of it so far? I found it incredibly fascinating but couldn't quite decide what I thought of it beyond that.
