Hope in the Midst of Emptiness

There is nothing worse than feeling empty. Nothing worse than having desire unfulfilled. When we’re empty, we’re unsatisfied. And we are placed at risk because we seek to be filled. (I’ve struggled with that!) Too often we try to fill ourselves up with the wrong things. In the end, after much pain and heartache, we discover our desire was misplaced. And we still feel empty. Proverbs 13:12 says, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick.” What do you hope in? If {Read More}

I’m Thinking About YOU

You know what I’ve been thinking about? I’ve been thinking about YOU. You matter. You are significant, not because of what you do, but because of who you are. You are wonderful. When you see yourself as God sees you, you don’t have to worry about an identity crisis. You are his child. You have amazing strengths that are unique to you. You can succeed. When you take time to explore your dreams and dare to grow by trusting God {Read More}

Moments with God

Near the end of a deadline, an amazing thing happens to my daily Bible reading: It literally doubles in length. When I assign myself the number of chapters I write PER DAY, then it would be easy to write-off spending an hour in God’s Word and prayer. Instead, I make sure to schedule this time in . . . yes, even when each precious minute writing counts. The thing is, God seems to multiply my time. Not only that, it’s {Read More}

Readers’ Words. God’s Glory. Sometimes Authors Just Need to Pause and Appreciate!

This is my novel By the Light of the Silvery Moon. It was published in March 2012 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, 2012. I loved writing this book. I’d been a “fan” of the Titanic for years. I was fully immersed in the story as I wrote, but then life happened. By the time the book released I was under deadline for another project. I participated in some radio interviews and {Read More}

Instead, I’ve discovered a few tricks of “going deep” into a topical Bible {Read More}
