On a lovely Sunday afternoon, my husband and I took a day trip to visit the beautiful city of Würzburg, Germany.

Wildflowers on the trail

by JoslynChase in Audiobooks, Travel

Yesterday afternoon we hiked the Rauher Kulm trail in the Upper Palatinate with our youth group from church.

For Memorial Day, I took off work to spend the day with my husband, exploring the beautiful countryside and points of interest.

About four years ago, we moved to the Puget Sound area from southern Germany. Lately, I’ve been wondering if a move back to Germany might be on the horizon, but when it firmed into reality it hit with startling swiftness and coincided with a lot of other major events in my life. Not to mention […]

For most of us, life has taken a radical turn in recent months. As a writer, I’m pretty reclusive anyway, but now it’s extreme. I haven’t left the house since February except to walk or jog in the neighborhood and surrounding hills. My husband still goes out to work one day a week, so he […]

The Voice & The Power of Story
