welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

L.L. Barkat

Yes, I'm a couple of days early with my November author interviews, but my writing friend L.L. Barkat's book Stone Crossings is being reviewed at InCourageme. There's also doing a giveaway of the book there. You can read the review here: Review at InCourageme.

L.L. Barkat is the author of Stone Crossings: Finding Grace in Hard and Hidden Places, a spiritual memoir/Christian living book (InterVarsity Press). Says author Don Everts, “Barkat’s courageous, unblinking honesty is a gift.” And theologian Scot McKnight has said, “The only writer I know quite like Barkat is Eugene Peterson.” She is Managing Editor and culture columnist for HighCallingBlogs, Staff Writer for International Arts Movement’s Curator Magazine, and is currently engaged in an art pilgrimage of sorts. She blogs at Seedlings in Stone. You can follow her on Twitter at @llbarkat.

I met L.L. through a blog I read several years ago. Sadly, I don't remember which one, but I was drawn to L.L.'s blog and began to read it avidly. When I knew I would be attending Mt. Hermon in 2008, I discovered she would be doing one of the classes and I was finally able to meet her. What a special lady.
