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. Whatever trial you may be encountering, this story offers principles that lead to victory in any situation. Psalm 62:5, “My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him.”
“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. John 10:27, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
“Come Walk the Narrow Path with Me,” is my latest book. Over the years, I have had a number of unique opportunities to share my faith. My journals are bulging with stories of many seeds being planted, stories of skeptics, people accepting Christ, and a few scoffers. The stories are often conversations I’ve had with people. One friend said this book is a “handbook for witnessing for the lay person.” Acts 22:15, “For you will be a witness for Him to all men of what you have seen and heard.”
How does my work differ from others of its genre? Most people enjoy reading stories. My books are unique because there are filled with tons of 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 “Speak to Me, Lord, I’m Listening,” 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 second 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. My third book, “Come Walk the Narrow Path with Me,” will hopefully encourage and inspire others to share their faith as the Lord leads.
How does my writing process work? Beginning when I accepted Christ 50 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 three books.
