Welcome to my website. I’m so glad you stopped by. May you find refreshment and inspiration from my writings. My hope is that my blog will serve as “A Fountain of Life” for you. What does that mean? It means that my focus will be on “Hearing God’s Voice.” Each blog will contain some aspect of hearing from God whether through a Bible verse, through prayer, other people, His creation, circumstances, etc. It will be an extension of my book, “Speak to Me, Lord, I’m Listening,” and will remind us to be aware of God’s personal words in our lives. New stories, fresh awareness of God…. May He well up in you as a fountain of life.
This blog contains not only timely posts but also the opportunity to check out my latest books.
“Mother Has Alzheimer’s” chronicles the years my mother faced this disease and how God met us in this time of loss. I think you will find it to be an uplifting book full of hope as you travel the journey with me. God showed up in some very special ways during that time.
“Speak to Me, Lord, I”m Listening,” is a compilation of my journal stories over the years. Always listening for God’s voice, I acknowledge these times of hearing Him speak as a core value in my relationship with Christ. You will find that my stories will remind you of occasions when you have also heard His voice. Be encouraged that God does still speak to His people today.
How does my work differ from others of its genre? Most people enjoy reading stories. My new book is unique because there are over fifty true stories from my life, my family and a few friends who donated wonderful, inspiring stories where they heard God’s voice. Woven around the stories are applicable Bible verses and teaching. Another distinctive aspect of my book is that there is a study guide included after each of the ten chapters. This allows the opportunity for a small group study to further establish God’s voice as we share with others.
Why do I write what I do? My first book, “Mother Has Alzheimer’s” was an opportunity to encourage people who were caring for a loved one suffering with Alzheimer’s disease. My new book, “Speak to Me, Lord, I’m Listening,” was written to bring Christians to an awareness that God still speaks to us today. Whether through Scripture, prayer, people, nature, circumstances, dreams and visions, or His creation, God wants us to be encouraged, comforted and directed by His voice in our lives.
How does my writing process work? Beginning when I accepted Christ 45 years ago, I have written copiously in journals. From these journals, God has shown me patterns of how He has spoken into my life over the years. With much prayer, God has threaded my journal stories into two books.
