End of Summer Update

Hi friends! It’s been a great summer and this week’s offering on the blog is a bit different. I am in the thick of prepping to return to the classroom and send my kiddos back to school as well. I have a few end of summer updates and some information to share. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit the blog. I appreciate each of you!


End of summer gives way to my favorite season, fall. I wanted to take the time to let you know that as September begins, I will start a series for the month on Battling Back to School Madness.

This series will look at little things we can do as the slower rhythm of summer gives way to the busyness of back to school. We’ll focus on staying connected to our kids, planning meals, and other ways to make September smoother for families.


I received my very first print freelance article today in the mail. The article was published in Creation Illustrated, which is a magazine about nature from a Christian perspective. Waves of disbelief and gratitude flooded my heart today when I opened the envelope and saw the magazine and the payment. I’m so grateful and believe this is just the start of my freelancing life.

You can read the article on Creation Illustrated’s digital copy of the Summer 2018 issue (click here to read). I’m on page 44.

I share this news to encourage you. Don’t stop believing. That thing you’ve been putting off or fearful about – go for it.

You may want to change careers, go back to school, lose weight, or even start writing. Take steps to move forward with your dream. Do some research. Learn new things. Make small moves. Regretting what you didn’t do can be way worse than regretting what you tried to do but failed.

Regretting what you didn’t do can be way worse than regretting what you tried to do but failed.

On Earl Grey and Yellow’s PUBLISHED WORK page, you’ll be able to see what else I’ve been up to this year in my freelance journey. I’ll continue to follow this writing dream and pray that God would increase my territory.


Starting at the end of September, I will be sending out a monthly newsletter on the last Saturday of each month. This newsletter will be for subscribers only and include inside information, news, and freebies. Please subscribe today by clicking HERE and you’ll receive a free e-Book.

I appreciate you subscribing and promise to respect your email privacy. No spam, no shenanigans, ever.

I can’t wait to share with you this fall on pursuing faithfulness in the little things. Little things mean a lot, so we must tend them carefully.


Hi! I’m Tracy…Christ-follower, wife, mama, writer, blogger, speaker, teacher, dreamer. I love Earl Grey Tea and quiet mornings.
