A retired Internal Medicine physician-turned-homeschooling-mom/author/artist, Dr. Egolf is the creator of the Molly McBride books (Gracewatch Media) and a freelance illustrator and writer. She resides in Central Ohio (Go Bucks!) with her handsome hubby, 2 darling daughters, one happily rescued Huskador, and a fluctuating number of frogs, fish, and equines. When she isn't re-learning Algebra or State capitals, she can be found in the library of St. Patrick church, occasionally serving as the "5th Sunday" librarian.

Anaïs Nin
“I am lonely, yet not everybody will do. I don't know why, some people fill the gaps and others emphasize my loneliness. In reality those who satisfy me are those who simply allow me to live with my ''idea of them.”
Anais Nin

Emily Dickinson
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
Emily Dickinson

G.K. Chesterton
“The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister. We can be proud of her beauty, since we have the same father; but she has no authority over us; we have to admire, but not to imitate. This gives to the typically Christian pleasure in this earth a strange touch of lightness that is almost frivolity. Nature was a solemn mother to the worshipers of Isis and Cybele. Nature was a solemn mother to Wordsworth or to Emerson. But Nature is not solemn to Francis of Assisi or to George Herbert. To St. Francis, Nature is a sister, and even a younger sister: a little, dancing sister, to be laughed at as well as loved.”
G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

“Kindness expressed to a stranger is kindness expressed to God.”

“In short, so great is God's love for you that He seems to love no one but you. And therefore, you should love no one but Him.*”
