Writers' Police Academy - Crime and Suspense



Just arrived home from a conference for writers of suspense and police procedurals, the Writers’ Police Academy in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The academy is a hands-on opportunity for authors who want to experience for themselves the field of law enforcement with some firefighter, first responder, and sometimes a dive team thrown in for good measure. There won't be many pictures to prove my participation because photography and videos are not allowed in many of the classes  to protect those officers whose identity in undercover work might be compromised.


A Powerful Punch


Occasionally a good saying will file itself in my brain for future reference such as this challenging command from Eleanor Roosevelt.

1. “Do one thing every day that scares you.” - Eleanor Roosevelt



Some days I do just that. Some days I’m too scared.


Just One Thing


Do you often feel overwhelmed by your busy schedule? Do you arrive at the end of your days exhausted and your to-do list half undone? Do you feel frustrated by all the activity with little accomplishment?

If so, take heart. January is the season of new beginnings, resolutions, and intentional life changes. There is hope for these overbooked days.

Delayed Gratification



Delayed gratification. Or you may remember the idea as deferred gratification. These are terms you probably haven’t encountered in quite a while. Do you even recall what it means?

Thankful

Have you ever thought about what it means to give thanks? Wouldn't you be thankful rather than give it away?
