About Me

My friends call me the "grammar goddess." Really. ;-) I own a freelance writing, editing and tutoring business. Previously, I served three years as food editor for The Morning Sun in Mt. Pleasant, which kindled my interest in food writing. My other areas of expertise in writing include features, community news, architecture/construction and engraving/personalization. I have a frightening number of cookbooks and watch too many DIY, HGTV, Food Network, Cooking Channel and Antiques Roadshow (BBC and PBS versions) shows. And I tweak nearly every recipe I make.

'Another Reason to Believe': Jon Bon Jovi

I knew there were a few good reasons that I have always loved Jon Bon Jovi.

Great musician? Check. He and Jennifer Nettles sing one of my favorite songs together (originally his alone)

For another thing, he's downright adorable. C'mon, girls, have you looked at him?

He even seems to be a fairly normal guy ... especially for a rock star. Sorry to disappoint you all, ladies, but he's taken. Jon Bon Jovi's been married since 1989 to his high school sweetheart and they have four children.

The fact that he's opening a pay-what-you-can restaurant mostly staffed by volunteers in Red Bank, New Jersey this spring called Jon Bon Jovi's Soul Kitchen makes it clear the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation is doing the right thing for those Livin' On a Prayer. It's an obvious living out of the ideal mentioned in Luke Chapter 12, verse 48, as quoted by John F. Kennedy, “For of those to whom much is given, much is required.”

Those who can afford it should pay a minimum suggested $10 donation (but they'll take more if you can ante it up).

I think Jon Bon Jovi just got cuter and gave me Another Reason to Believe.

(In case you'd like to go to the original source, I read about this in an article on Take Part's website.)
