The definition of a hearth is primarily a fireplace. However, according to Merriam Webster, a hearth can also refer to a “vital, creative center.”

When I moved to Oregon from the Midwest almost a decade ago, it was to find my sea legs and my writing voice.

I write devotionals under the categories Oregonian’s Beacons and Poets’ Pavilion. I also write poems, and whatever else the Lord lays on my heart.

Gather round my hearth on a stormy night for encouragement in the days ahead.

Thank you for stopping by my hearth on the Oregon coast. Feel free to contact me. I love hearing from my readers. Blessings!
