Finding my Voice

Five Minute Friday

Now, set your timer, clear your head, for five minutes to just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.

Five Minute Friday

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
Oh and Ahem, if you would take pity and turn off comment verification, it would make leaving some love on your post that much easier for folks!
OK, are you ready? Won’t you please give me your best five minutes on:

Then…I used to sing in chorus and choir. But I would frequently lose my voice. My voice coach wondered if I had vocal nodules. Something like calluses on the vocal cords. And I did. I had to go two weeks without speaking. And relearn to talk in a way that was not damaging to my voice.

Now again I look for my voice, for but this time not my oral voice. This time I seek to establish my blogging voice. And instead of a voice coach I look to God to coach me.


  1. Oh, I LOVE your ending! (and am so intrigued by your beginning)even more thrilled we're neighbors today over at Lisa Jo's so I could meet you. Thank you for sharing your voice with us!!

  5. Such a wondrous coach. One that never fails!
