Raynna Myers: Writing & Photography

Follow Where Mercy Leads

Pregnant?!

Those of you who know my husband know he has a quick wit and let’s just say (by comparison) I do not. So when I wrote in my recent book release: It’s called Like a Woman in Labor, (and for the record, we should be very careful what we name things! …) …all you other amazing people with quick wits (including my husband) read it as though I was cleverly..

News Release: Raynna Published a Book.

News Release: I’ve published my first book! (Backstory in last post.) It’s called Like a Woman in Labor, (and for the record, we should be very careful what we name things! More on that later.)     From the back cover: “In the quiet (and not so quiet), deep places in us call out to the deep of God. We often call it anxiety or fear, but it is miracle.. Read More

A Free Fall into Becoming an Author? “SURE!”

I’ve embarked upon an experiment! (And by that I want you to think: free fall on accident.) About four years ago that’s where I was at (falling), but somewhere in the midst of that fall, I relaxed. About two years ago, I began to write about this in the form of prayer. It became a message I really believe in: prayer and the reality of God’s presence in the midst.. Read More

Still, here…

Hello! Just in case you are stopping by to see what’s going on here I thought I’d leave a small note to say thank you for your patience as I have not posted anything here for a little over a month. By the title, “Still, here”, I mean a few things: First, I am literally “still here” and looking forward to posting more often and soon. Second, kind of like.. Read More

Story Written Everywhere

I see story written everywhere, in the earth, in the sky, in our exquisite form and functions, at the market and at the theatre, in scraped knees and scrapped lives, in triumph and pride, broken hearts and bent over limbs.

When I came upon this place, pictured, just a little ways from my home, it was the story of beauty being closer than I thought and inviting me in. I needed that and even still ached to absorb it, to believe it—in a practical way….

Destroy Imagination: method 1

…our trail-mates are considering the path ahead as we had, all eight of us (although I hardly hold the 3 year old accountable on this one!), managed to leave our trail maps back in the car! It was a pivotal moment where we all decided to push on, discovering 5 miles later the full impact of our decision!! hahaha! … More of the story, images from summer to warm those of us experiencing winter up a bit, poetry and hopefully some inspiration to get outside and have an adventure – on the site today…

Ireland in their Eyes: Story Portraits

Happy New Year!! I’m a wee bit late in the greeting, but maybe like many of you, I’ve been busy making sure I had the right priorities in place at the beginning of this new fresh start or maybe like me, I’ve been having some serious leisure. As I homeschool and mother six children 13 and under, order is no small endeavor, but if I try to manufacture it everyone.. Read More

Rock N’ Photo Shoot

I really enjoyed being the photographer for Lexington Music Education’s Rock N’ Roll Christmas Charity concert two weekends ago benefitting LexArts. The location (Natasha’s Bistro & Bar) was a very cool venue to highlight this and lots of other talents – local and national headlining performers! I am so happy for all these kids to have such awesome opportunities. BIG thumbs up to all the parents, teachers and performers!! I.. Read More

The Rounders — An All Original Band

Alright— I loved doing this. “The Rounders (based in Lexington, Kentucky) are the result of ten years of musical collaboration between Josh Stitzer on bass and vocals and Chris Mattingly on acoustic guitar, electric guitar and vocals.” “Their style is part ambient, part rock, part folk and Americana music, and all original with a few select covers thrown in. Their style stems from influences such as The Grateful Dead, Old.. Read More
