Place: A Five Minute Friday Reflection

Dear Tired Mom in the Middle of Summer Vacation…

Creativity in the Margins of Life

“I wrote this book in the margins of life…it took 6 years,” said Ann Voskamp, speaking on writing her newest book, The Broken Way.  The margins of life. Creativity, for most of us, happens in the margins of life.  Even for a New York Times bestselling author, creativity often happens in the margins. Why? Because for…
