Marsha Jordan
       Marsha Jordan is a disabled grandmother, author, and shower singer who began her writing career on the bathroom walls of St. Joseph's Catholic Elementary School. Now her writing appears in restrooms throughout the country. Jordan has two boys, ages 30 and 55. She's been married to the 55 year old for 31 years.

She's been held captive for a quarter of a century In the north woods of Wisconsin where she shares an empty nest with her rocket scientist husband and their badly behaved toy poodle, King Louie who rules the household with an iron paw.

After her grandson was badly burned, Jordan created The HUGS and HOPE Foundation, a nonprofit charity devoted to cheering critically ill and injured children.

Jordan's inspirational and humorous essays are available in her new book, "Hugs, Hope, and Peanut Butter." The book is illustrated with drawings by kids who are battling for life.

» Dead Men Walking
       Lazarus had been dead and rotting in the grave for days. His sister told Jesus, "He stinketh." (And who says there's no humor in the Bible?) But Jesus called Lazarus out of the grave. When He came upon a funeral procession, Jesus raised tha... read more

» Extreme Makeover
       The husband and I are "boat people." Not the kind that fled from Viet Nam. We're the kind of boat people who drive half a day to wait in line for an hour at the boat landing, just to take a thirty minute boat ride. H.M. is actually more of ... read more

» The Road of Life
       Have you noticed that vacations rarely go the way you planned? Here's a typical scenario: Mom and dad outline a fun and interesting trip for the family. They excitedly pack the Volkswagon and pull out of the driveway with great expectations. Then fiv... read more

» Ten Tips for Beating Depression
       I heard about a woman who was suffering from depression, so her concerned husband took her to a psychiatrist. The doctor listened to the couple talk about their relationship, and then he said, "The treatment I prescribe is really quite simple.&q... read more

» What Did I Do To Deserve This?
       You must have done something awful for this to happen to you." Has anyone ever said that to you? Have you said it to yourself? Job had been through a lot. He'd lost his children, his home, his possessions, and his health. All he had left was his... read more

» Why Doesn't God Answer My Prayer?
       I heard a story about a girl who wrote to a missionary. She'd been told not to request a response from him because missionaries are very busy. She wrote, "We are praying for you, but we are not expecting an answer." Do you feel like God doe... read more

» Pooped
       Yesterday was one of those days. I was so pooped that I struggled to sit upright at the dining room table. It took extreme effort to hold my head up out of the soup bowl. Days like that are common for me because I have a connective tissue disease tha... read more

» Life In The Manure Pile
       The husband once aspired to be a self-sufficient, back-to-the-land pioneer. He bought a windmill, oil lamps, beehives, and a couple of pigs, which we named Lois Lane and Clark Kent. This dirty duo caused me headaches from the day we took them home. W... read more

» Hurting or Helping?
       Over and over, Cobi screamed, "No! No!" as the nurse and I held him down. He sobbed in pain and begged for my help, but all I could do was push him down onto the table with all my might as he kicked at me. The look of fear on his face burne... read more
