Draw the Line


LifeWay's January edition of Home Life magazine featured my first-ever nationally published piece. A reworked my Drop Zone post. I took out proper names other than Seth. Made a few changes to sentence structure. Added a concluding paragraph with some lessons for parents. Submitted it & found out 10 months ago that I'd be published.

I am thankful for their choosing me. An honor to be in their magazine. As a newbie writer I need all the editorial help I can get. I am thankful for their expertise. Furthermore, they know what their readers want. But their editors made one change I must address.

I drive a sporty 1996 Saturn SL-2.

Not a minivan.

Man's gotta draw the line somewhere.

Sorry to burst your bubble, Aaron, but there's nothing sporty about a Saturn.

Aaron said...

@Nichole, don't dis the Saturn. It's a stick with leather seats & aluminum wheels. Most importantly: it is anything BUT a minivan. ;-)

Your folks let us read your article. Well done! It made me think of Psalm 78:4
