Confessions of a Reluctant Disciple

Sharing realistic, usually unconventional, observations from the arsenal of a slightly qualified prayer warrior

Last Week on Inquisitr (3.27-4.2.16)

These were published last week.  Feel free to click on them even if you don’t read the whole story.  I get paid by clicks, but the subjects are actually interesting, too!  🙂

Published Monday, 3.28.16  Sadly a 4-year-old little girl was attacked and beheaded on a morning walk with her mother on the streets of Taiwan.  The homeless man carrying a cleaver decapitated her.  #girldecapitated

Published Tuesday, 3.29.16  Fabulous new research has found that a blood test can diagnose a concussion up to seven days after the trauma, allowing for better treatment.  #concussionbloodtest

Published Wednesday, 3.30.16  Unfortunately, Jessica Alba’s The Honest Company is being sued for false advertising with the complainant stating the ingredients in her products are not as all natural as claimed.  All corporations go through this, but THC works very hard, through extensive research, to make great products!  #HonestCompany  #THC

And then this week…!

Published Monday, 4.4.16  The leaked #PanamaPapers have many officials nervous.  The largest data leak EVER to date, the millions of pages contain information about offshore accounts belonging to hundreds of influential people and country leaders.  #Panamaleak  #dataleak

Published Tuesday, 4.5.16  Students at #PrincetonUniversity protested to remove Woodrow Wilson’s campus presence due to his historically racist behavior (over 100 years ago), but the university performed a thorough review and decided his name will stay, and the university will go forward with new diversity programs for students.  #Princetonprotest  #WoodrowWilson

Thanks for reading and clicking.  Feel free to “tell two friends” (share) and ask them to click 😉

God bless!


Stall Tactics #writing #amwriting #author #romance #writerproblems #writertips

An author and friend of mine wrote this and it was just too funny not to share. And too true. What are your favorite stall tactics when you just aren’t feeling it?

Some are more, while others are less. Some are easy, while others are hard.

The only real problem I’m having are those pesky days where I just don’t have it in me. The days where I lack any motivation to even look at my computer, let alone open it up and actually use my imagination to spring forth utter brilliance . . . or something remotely coherent about my story and characters.

Instead of caving into those dark days, though, I force myself to sit down and type. Those days I usually count down each word down as I go, well, because even though writing is the last thing on the plant I want to be doing in that given moment, by gosh, this book isn’t going to write itself and I have a deadline and darn it…

Last Week This Happened (3.20-3.26.16)

Articles of interest from last week include:

On Tuesday, March 22, Brussels was hit by a bomb attack authorities believe was in retaliation for an arrest made relating to the Paris attacks a few days earlier.  Several people died and hundreds more were injured.  In the few days since, authorities have arrested more people in connection with this and the Paris attacks.

On Wednesday, March 23, new debris was found that may belong to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that mysteriously disappeared almost two years ago.

On Thursday, March 24, 48 more bikers have been indicted for their part in the Waco shooting last year.  This brings the total to 106 bikers indicted.

On Friday, March 25, more than 800 hostages were rescued by Nigerian Troops.

I hope you enjoyed. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the comments section. Let’s get some conversation going. As always, feel free to share if you read something you liked! Think about your world and continue to ask what you can do for it…that was a good question the first time it was asked and it continues to be a good question.


Becky is a single mom and a reluctant disciple, called to share her story with others in her own unconventional, written way. She knows God equips her for her journey, and does her best to trust in His plan for that journey, and not to judge others on their journeys…unless the waist of their pants is at their butt cheeks; then she thinks they should pull those puppies up. Or if somebody says she eats too much chocolate; then she just can’t be friends with them anymore. But she will pray for them. Join her to discover how your plans and God’s plans come together in this life filled with groovy trails.
