Jon Drury flew transport over Vietnam. He pastored for over 40 years. Married to his beloved wife, Beverly, they raised a family, blessing countless folks along the way. I met him at a writers’ conference where aspiring authors joyfully tapped into his ready wisdom. He’s well-known on the West coast for helping other authors.

Oh, how I miss the days of paint spills and paper cuts (covered in princess band-aids, of course)! As summer winds down, curing boredom in creative kids is the last item on our back to school checklist. My all-time-favorite project was glow-in-the-dark pillow cases. We graduated to other glow-in-the-dark creations, too, as the kids grew up. Oh, the joys of playing chase outside in glow-in-the-dark T-shirts after dark! more

Between the upcoming shows with Tony Johnson and the challenging brain of Betsy Hahn, I’ve been thinking harder than I wanted to about mentoring. (For Betsy’s Questions 1-4, look for How to be a Single Parent Without Getting on Everyone’s Nerves) more
I first met Betsy Hahn through Women’s Fund. I like Women’s Fund because it allows middle-class gals like me to be big-giving philanthropists. How? By bringing together lots of generous women to pool our resources. At Women’s Fund events, I get to sit next to dynamic, talented, professional women, like my friend Betsy. more
