Things that Nourish Me

// other than writing that is! //

  • I write better when it’s raining. I think I may even breathe better. And a rainstorm with thunder and lightning? Such power! It makes me feel more alive. I also like songs about rain, such as Holy Spirit Rain Down by Hillsong, I Love a Rainy Night by Eddie Rabbitt, Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain by Willie Nelson, and Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head.


  • Hot coffee. Coffee is especially good when it comes with a good friend who longs for deep, meaningful, God-centered conversation as much as I do. If it’s raining, even better!


  • Beautifully crafted sentences that linger in my mind: sometimes profound (meaning they cause me to think), sometimes provocative (meaning they cause me to feel).
