Commented on Stories from the Roller Coaster:
   "Thanks, Sandra. I am helping two friends walk through circumstances similar to those I write about in the book. What they are going through is unfortunate and unfair, but they are relying on their faith, which is strengthening mine. I am reminded that my stories didn't happen in a silo, but they are meant to connect with others and offer encouragement to them that God is who He says He is."

   "Thank you for your feedback. I suppose I wanted "powerful" without "unique," but I have found that those are usually connected and not really seen as such except in retrospect. You may find it interesting that I am beginning work on a powerful story of a small school football coach who battled ALS through his last season and many years beyond. He made a unique call in a game that brought him instant and short-lived fame, but the "story behind the story" almost escaped untold. Though the major "event" in the story happened almost 30 years ago, the family has only recently recognized how impactful their story really is."

   "Thanks for sharing, Tamara. One of the purposes of sharing my stories was to remind others of their stories. Glad you are making good use of your china and crystal!"

Commented on Stories from the Roller Coaster:
   "Thanks, Sandra, for the kind comments. My friend Scott Hanberry, who wrote the foreword, actually coined the term "me, too moments." We often serve as external hard drives for one another when we are preparing to write or speak, reminding one another of the most poignant parts of our messages from a listener's perspective. When I asked him to write the foreword, I asked him to key on the "me, too moments" that had been the center of so many previous conversations. Scott moved away close to a year ago. We still talk, but I'm also grateful to have this conversation in print so that I can revisit as we so often did while he was here. Thank you for joining in on our conversation--welcome!"

   "Thank you, Darcie! Mine has been a wholesome and humorous life to live. Not without its struggles, for sure, but a blessed life, nonetheless."
