Good advice

by Linda Wegner on 11/28/21

I’ve just finished reading a novel, something I rarely do. While incredibly well written, I found it hard to read but even harder to put down. Read more...

Glimpses of grace

by Linda Wegner on 11/22/21

If ever there was a time when the theme for an article would be easy to capture, you’d think it would be this week. Both good and bad have flooded the news and often, our individual lives. I won’t need to reiterate the obvious, I just want to send words of appreciation for all the efforts of so many to ease the pain of thousands of others. I’ll call them glimpses of grace.

Keep waiting

by Linda Wegner on 11/15/21

Every week I put many hours of prayer and thought into these articles and, I admit, some weeks are much easier than others. For example, these past few days have been full of activity but there haven’t been many occasions that seemed worth sharing. But on the other hand…. Read more...

Intense celebration

A Message from Linda Wegner
Situated on the west coast of British Columbia, Powell River is a geographically isolated community with access to Vancouver Island or the Lower Mainland, including Vancouver, only by plane or boat. Yes, our travel options are expensive and somewhat restrictive, but it’s because of that isolation that we have avoided the hectic pace of city life.

Our scenery is spectacular and the opportunities for outdoors activities, abundant. Take a look and avoid being jealous, if you can. These views are from my office and kitchen windows.

Thank you to you all for your love and support.
