ENUMCLAW, Wash., June 6 /Christian Newswire/ -- According to behavior change expert and wellness consultant Mark Stibich, PhD, it is possible to take steps to improve health and the effects of aging. In an online article with "Longevity," Stibich writes "There are two basic principles to keep your brain healthy and sharp as you age: variety and curiosity."
Number four in his top ten tips list to improve mental fitness is to tell good stories. Which is good news for author, Jean Blue, who released her novel "Open House" with WinePress publishing this year.
A 1948 graduate of Saginaw High School in Saginaw, Michigan, Blue insists, "I'm an older gal, but I keep active. I believe that having white hair is no excuse to fold my hands and do nothing."
Instead, Blue sets her hands and mind to writing good stories, contemporary Christian fiction––with a romantic twist. "I enjoy romance in a novel and I couldn't help but include a love story."
Her unwavering Christian beliefs are also reflected in her stories. "I hope to inspire readers and to entertain them in a way that will encourage their faith."
When asked about the theme for her upcoming novel, Blue highlights a section straight from the manuscript: "Commit yourselves to some service for the Lord and know the joy of doing something worthwhile."
A freelance writer and avid reader, Blue's published works include "A Particular Member" (Exposition Press, 1966), "Time to Talk" (Morris Publishing, 1999), and "Summit Surprises," (Half Moon Press, 1973).
Blue currently operates as the editor of "The Town Crier," a local newsletter that features school events, library, church, community affairs in general. She is also the secretary for the local chapter of the American Legion Auxiliary. Blue and her husband are the proud grandparents of nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, and make their home in Michigan.
