About

Ask Andrea is brought to you by Andrea Graham, the author of All For Christ, and Assistant Editor of Laser & Sword Magazine,  freelance edits at povbootcamp.com, and is a contributor to the Lost Genre Guild‘s first anthology, Light at the Edge of Darkness. Ask Andrea offers practical advice grounded in biblical perspectives. Upon rededicating herself to Christ at fifteen, Andrea became a life-long student of the bible and the Holy Spirit and went on to study creative writing and religion at Ashland University. Note she didn’t study psychology, though she probably would if she ever went back to school.

Additional legal disclaimers:

Andrea also isn’t a licensed counselor and cannot provide legal, medical, psychological, or any other kind of professional advice. She will speak to your difficulties as a Sister in the Lord, or an ambassador of Christ, and if she feels you need professional help, she will say so. Whether you take her advice or not and the consequences thereof is your own responsibility.

Comments on this blog and any links contained therein reflect solely the opinions and worldview of the commenter and do not necessarily reflect Andrea’s views. Neither does their presence necessarily constitute her endorsement of the content. She tries to delete comments and links deemed dangerous and/or highly offensive to her target audience, but may miss some. If you spot anything inappropriate, please alert her to it.

Her publishing schedule:

Andrea has a current goal of posting, from any category, at least once a week, preferably an advice column in addition to anything else she decides to cover. You can help keep the advice column itself coming out on a regular basis by sending your letters. Eventually, she’d like to move to a daily column. Right now, she answer all letters, but if she get swamped in the future that may not be possible.

Privacy Notice:

Your privacy is important, so she abridges letters for that reason and for brevity. She won’t publish your letter if you ask her not to, but she does publish her response so it can help others with similar issues. Note you can select whether your question is for private or public consumption on the contact form. It also asks for a phone number; feel free to ignore this field. In most cases, Andrea does not need or even want your phone number, but it comes with the form she used, which didn’t give her an option to turn it off. Likewise, the form asks for your full name. While your actual name would be appreciated in private communiques, a screen name or traditional-style advice column pseudonym is fine and dandy for letters meant for public consumption.
Andrea is a human being like you. If you email her, she’ll probably email you back. If at some point you no longer wish to correspond with her, try not responding, and if she doesn’t take the hint, just tell her politely, and you might want to ask her to remove you from her personal address book, as she may have added you to it, but rest assured she will not add you to any lists. She doesn’t have any. Likewise, she will not sell or distribute any information passed between you and her*, other than to use your letter in her column, if you have designated it for such purposes. If you chose to not sign your letter with a traditional advice column signature, such as “Fed up in Nebraska” she will assume you’re fine with using your actual first name or user name (the first half of your email address, ie, username@yourdomain.com). If you change names, please note that fact.

Leaving notes for her in the comments section implies your permission to use your letter in her column and you are encouraged to do so, but please do not disclose anything you’re not comfortable with the general public having access to in this means.

Again, please send us your letters. Please be aware unsolicited attachments will not be opened.

*Andrea is not a therapist or a counselor, just a private citizen (US), you are not her client or patient and she is not bound by confidentiality, but she will keep communications private unless subpoenaed, she feels you are a danger to yourself or others, or if you are endangered by someone else.

    I had the following dream in June. I am a middle-aged empty nester with six grandchildren. I bought a new business in July and took on a significant volunteer leadership role this year in an organization. This dream came about a week before both of these events occured.

    I was teaching a group of college kids at a high school camp. After our lesson, we toured the camp and were walking around looking at different buildings, etc., and I was explaining some of the purposes of them to the students. Across the way, here came three rams running right at us. I did not notice the colors of them. We all froze and were unable to move because the charge of the rams was so great. One of the rams butted one of the young male students. All three rams then ran off.
