Writing Biblical Fiction

Writing Biblical Fiction

A friend once told me I write differently when I write Biblical Fiction. I had written three books of Contemporary Christian Fiction before Journey to the Well was published. God always uses the ups and downs in our lives, and even in Biblical Fiction I can...
Praying for Parking Places

Praying for Parking Places

Does God care about the little things in our life, like getting somewhere on time, hoping a conversation with a friend goes well, a new job, sickness? He does. All those and more. I have a friend who asks her “Parking Angel” for parking places. It seems like trivia,...
Teaching What I Know

Teaching What I Know

Years ago, I traveled for almost 3 years for Stonecroft Ministries. It was fun and a thrill to share my life and journey with other women. The only problem was that the committee had to approve my speech and I was not to deviate from it. That was fine, I told of my...
