Mothers And Daughters (Poetry Chapbook) G I V E A W A Y

By Victoria Easter Wilson / May 6, 2015 /

I had the joy of studying with Catherine in college and, since graduation, we’ve kept in touch about our various writing endeavors. Catherine’s first published work (she’s going on several!) is a poetry chapbook, written as a heartfelt tribute to her late mom, called Mothers & Daughters. As a mother to a daughter myself, Catherine’s…

Good Things: Natasha Red Shop

By Victoria Easter Wilson / May 1, 2015 /

For me, cooking has always been more of an art than a science. And by art, I mean fingerpainting. A young single, ‘cooking for myself’ meant lots of peanut butter bagels and granola with yogurt. Sandwiches counted as a square meal. (Get it? Sandwiches. Square meal. Moving on.) Unfortunately, my new husband did not care…

Blue Lights & God’s Law

By Victoria Easter Wilson / April 27, 2015 /

Recently I was pulled over by a police officer for the first time in my life. A real, live police officer. He sauntered up to my window and explained my infraction, following the car in front of me too closely, and I did all the normal things you’re supposed to do when you get pulled over…

We're Expecting Again!!! Also, Pregnancy Announcement Ideas We Didn’t Use

By Victoria Easter Wilson / April 21, 2015 /

That we feel the need to make grand announcements heralding our pregnancies is, I have to say, a bit amusing. You’re growing a human! An egg and a sperm collided on exactly right day and this little microscopic organism did exactly the right things at exactly the right time to sustain life. A pregnancy is…

The Night My Daughter Turned Black and Blue

By Victoria Easter Wilson / April 20, 2015 /

Her limp body flopped over a table, strew with items hastily pushed aside to make way for the injured. I could see her precious cheeks, swollen with what must have been repeated blows. Her eyes were matted shut. Her tiny frame was black and blue, skin broken and oozing blood Breathing labored. She stirred, barely…

Currently, my husband is months away from graduating seminary and we do believe the Lord is calling him to the pastorate.

A Blogger Without A Blog

By Victoria Easter Wilson / April 10, 2015 /

I felt sick to my stomach. Almost like I got punched right in the gut. It’s the feeling you get when you know something really bad is about to happen. My blog was down. Alright, alright. I understand this predicament isn’t actually the end of the world. And it’s probably not even relatable to most…

Stop Asking Her When She's Going To Have A Baby

By Victoria Easter Wilson / March 25, 2015 /

It happened. A pause in the conversation. A lull in which someone thought it would be a wonderful time to direct her attention toward the newlywed in the group and ask, “So, when do you think you two will be having a baby?” I could write a book. That question, “So when are you two…

The Love Of God

By Victoria Easter Wilson / March 23, 2015 /

We sang this hymn at church on Sunday. The words melted my writer’s heart, especially the last line. The Love of God | Frederick M. Lehman The love of God is greater far Than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, And reaches to the lowest hell; The guilty pair, bowed…
