Looking for some good short reading? This is one of the places that I link up. If you click on this Esme’s link, https://esmesalon.com  you will find a variety of posts, crafts, recipes, sewing, travel articles and writers’ blogs of all kinds. Best of all, you don’t have to be  a Blogger to access this site. I try to post something there most Mondays and I have ‘met’ some wonderful writers there.
 
Best and Blessings,
 
Michele Somerville, The Beach Girl Chronicles
 
 

Published by msomerville2014

About: Michele Somerville is a wife, mother, stepmother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. She lives with her husband and their dog Sheba. Sheba is their fourth rescue dog in 30 years. She is a retired ordained United Methodist Elder and serves two churches part-time in North Central Pennsylvania. She obtained her Bachelors’ Degree in 1999 from Mansfield University and her Master of Divinity in 2004 and Doctor of Ministry in 2016, both from Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School in Rochester, New York. My Doctor of Ministry Thesis was:” Prophetic Words of Grace: Biblical Storytelling in the Local Church.” Michele began writing and performing character monologues for worship in 2008. She began by asking the question about nameless characters in the Bible, “What would they say if they could speak for themselves?” and then using her theological education and experience of the human condition to attempt an answer that is both academic and creative. Much of what you will read here are memories from growing up in a tourist town, in a bar, in the 1960’s, shaggy dog stories about our rescue dogs, life in a small town, and stories of faith and hope. Throughout her life she has lived in many states, including small towns, large towns and cities. She lived in Rota, Spain, for nine challenging months. Despite all the places she have lived since moving away from home in 1970,Michele is at the heart of all things Jack and Maggie’s daughter, and a beach girl from Onset, Massachusetts.

  1. lol, I got it from you! No pressure, but you are a good role model. I’m not sure if what I did is what she was suggesting, some of this stuff is still above my head, but I thought, why not. I do have some friends and family who follow my blog who are not bloggers, they might enjoy some of the reads. That yummy looking caramel icing for instance, while I am trying to cut down on my sugar intake.

  2. Hi Michele, I did bookmark this link. It is always fun and interesting to meet someone new. An aside: I could not open the link by clicking on it in Safari and on Google Chrome. I accessed it by copy/pasting it into my browser to make it work. 🙂

    1. Thanks Erica/Erika, I am sorry that you had that problem, but glad you found a way around it. I only recently figured out how to bookmark favorite sites on my computer. I have more done on my “All in One” than on my laptop. Going to have to copy and paste to go back to the site to see if I owe it any more reading. Blessings for these hot July days.

      1. Hi again, Michele.🙂I recall blogging friends mentioning some things on my site over the past couple of years. For instance, I was not aware I did not have “comments” toggled on my site for the first few months. I am still learning all sorts of quirky things, or am I the quirky one 🙂. Enjoy your week. Erica
