Welcome to my blog! I’ll be posting my stories here–some from my work-in-progress memoir “Butter Side Up”, some from my work-in-progress breast cancer book “When Good Boobs Go Bad…What’s Up With That, God?”,  some of the stories I have published with Chicken Soup For The Soul and occasionally, I’ll even post some of my off-the-wall weirdnesses, just because I can! Y’all come back now, hear?

  1. Hi Tina,
    I tried to “follow” a couple of times, but I never get the email confirmation that they say they will send and I also don’t get the notifications by email either. Good thing for facebook and the link to your home page that I have bookmarked (although I am a little slow on keeping up that way). It could just be the AOL mail that does not get mail sent – actually….. dumb me…. I blocked word press emails – ha ha. I was mad at them because I could never figure out how to get word press to work to make a home page and when people tried to explain, I just didn’t get it (even did the tutorial) – so you know, blaming them instead of myself. Ahhh, sometimes being old and crotchety has its down falls.

  2. Don’t feel badly…if it wasn’t for Gabe in my writer’s group, I wouldn’t have even known how to set things up–not sure if they’re done right even now 🙂

  3. Hello Ms. Tina Mattern,

    I am not sure whether or not you are the one who wrote the wonderful story “Summer Faith,” from the Miracles book of the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series. The story, however, touched my heart and soothed my soul in a very positive way.

    Best regards,

  4. After reading the story and even though I am a Muslim, I loved Jesus more than ever before when the left-handed care bear mitten came out of nowhere. By the end of the story, you realized that you were the one who was missing and not the mitten. When we reach the end of light, all what we have to do it to take one more step forward in the darkness. Blind faith is no know that God will no doubt offer us a solid place to stand on. Summer’s blind faith was the solid place God had offered her.

  5. Very wise words indeed, my friend. I would be completely lost without my blind faith. Thank you again!
