Don’t Let Their Stories Die

Memorial Day is a time to remember: In 2000, I got my idea for what came to be my first historical novel, From Dust and Ashes. Wanting to know more about the 23 men who liberated Mauthausen concentration camp, I contacted the 11th Armored Division who put me in touch with six of the veterans. These men then invited me to attend the 59th reunion of their division. I wasn’t expecting that at all. I thought they’d point me to a {Read More}

I asked my readers on Facebook to share {Read More}

An Ode to Fall, a Poem

Happy first day of fall! Here’s a beautiful poem about autumn from my friend Charlotte Adelsperger. I hope you enjoy it! Prayerfully I Walk Time alone in an autumn wood, I stroll on a mosaic carpet of moist multicolored leaves– rust brown, yellow, crimson. I ponder the deep red patches, scattered every step of my way. Silently they speak of our Savior’s redemptive, sacrificial blood— blessing each pace on the path of life. Charlotte Adelsperger ©1994 Prayerfully I Walk / {Read More}
