About the author and “Finding Harmony”

Author/columnist Melodie M. Davis

Someone once wrote this wisdom to me: “I love your name [Melodie]. Does it challenge you in a special way to be the note in life that makes harmony out of the diverse tones that often don’t make sense–until the melodic line is played with them?”

I’d never thought about that but ever since, I’ve kept that quote about making harmony topmost on my bulletin board and pondered if it were true. So that’s why I chose Finding Harmony for the theme of this blog.

I am a “Jill-of-most-media” writer: book author, columnist, editor, producer, script writer, websites, Facebook, Twitter—almost everything except novels, electronic games or apps. My husband and I have three adult daughters, five grandsons, and one dog.

I have been writing the weekly Another Way syndicated newspaper column since 1987 through my primary occupation when I was a writer/producer for MennoMedia. I am now happily retired. Mostly.

My purpose here is offering insights and encouragement (including from others) on how we can all find peace, harmony and all that grand stuff in our daily personal, community and wider world. Maybe. Whew.

I’m a Presbyterian who was raised Mennonite who married a Lutheran (talk about finding harmony) and worked for the Mennonite church for 43 years, ever since graduating from a Mennonite college after serving in a Mennonite VS program. You get the idea. Our church is a peacemaking congregation made up of house churches engaged in mission.

So that’s a little of where I’m coming from. Welcome.
