about me

California city dweller (born in LA) transplanted to rural
Wisconsin. Wife, mom, first-time grandmother, pastor, teacher, writer, blogger, prison chaplain's wife, singer. Interested in history, women's issues, gender issues and the church. Progressive conservative, egalitarian, evangelical, Pentecostal and Emergent...guess that makes me kind of a mutt!

If I back your work but don't comment it is only because I have nothing original to say.

Finding Little Big Foot

D. George

A woman pastor deals with her past, discrimination, a challenging congregation and single motherhood--and in so doing discovers renewed faith, hope and love.


The Rev. Dee Anna Hanson thinks she has left her rigid fundamentalist upbringing behind. What's more, she has faced a crisis of faith abd has weathered the tragic death of her husband. She is finally enjoying life raising her daughter and serving a middle-class congregation in a city she loves. Then she finds herself the pastor of a a rural congregation with more than a few characters, deals with an all-male board of deacons, learns to like venison, faces her past -- and questions all she thought she knew. Sometimes, asking the right questions can be more important than having the right answers.

VERY intriguing story idea. That said, there are just too many grammar problems for me to back this now. There are about ten in the first three paragraphs. Mixed tenses are the most obvious, but they are only the beginning of the problems. I am not trying to be mean, but a little polishing is on... view book

When I empty a spot, I'll back your interesting story. Intriguing premise! Something I noticed right away is a needless, and often repetitive use of pronouns that slows things down. There are many examples, but I am short on time so I'll just ilustrate from your pitch. "She has everything sh... view book
