Do Men and Women Write Differently?

Here's an interesting article from the New York Times suggesting that it's not the subject matter or the style or content that shows that men and women write differently, but actually the linguistic choices we make between words like "among" or "myself." Intriguing, eh?

Then, you can go to this website to plug in your text and the algorithm will determine whether you are a male or female writer.

When Someone Dies: Find Comfort in Jesus

Whew! It's been a looong time since I've posted. I hope to get back to regular blogging, but for now, I'll just announce my other new release for 2010, When Someone Dies: Find Comfort in Jesus. This is a book for children on the subject of grief, published by Concordia Publishing House. Through the text, I tried to show that children may be comforted by the love of Christ in times of loss. The illustrations are gorgeous, and a lot of people are responding to the beautiful cover showing the reflection of the boy and his dog with Jesus alongside him. What a wonderful pictorial interpretation of this scriptural truth. Thank you so much to Peggy Kuethe at Concordia for her wonderful editorial guidance. She is awesome!
