God's Word as a Foundation
My faith caught fire in me when I began to study the Bible. It was always there, I think, but suddenly the pieces of my thought-life and prayer-life began to connect like a series of chain reactions, igniting one after another. Studying God’s Word became the conduit to the powerful, radiant presence of God that beckoned me to know Him more. Over the years, we have experienced many joys and sorrows, ups and downs. God’s Holy Scriptures have been a lifeline of security, direction and hope. As I have continued in my earnest and passionate study of the Bible, I have found God’s steady presence in my life. He deepens my faith and my joy in His living presence, every day. I am eternally grateful for the Rock under my feet every single step of the way.
My Book and Other Publications
In 2015, I published my first devotional book, Hand in Hand, Walking with the Psalms through Loneliness (Radiant Star Books). As the product of a family that moved frequently throughout childhood, this book was the fruit of my lifelong labor to discover the home for the human heart. Hand in Hand offers words of encouragement and hope, while providing practical steps to walk right out of loneliness into the Presence of God.
I have also published a number of articles in a variety of Church publications, as well as written a column in the local newspaper, called “Faith Reflections”.
I am always working on a new idea for a book. I have hundreds of ideas. I’ll be sure to let you know when my next book is published!
I love writing my blog. It is a little more free-form than my other endeavors. Currently I post a blog called “The Daily Bread” in which I contemplate the glory of God in the mundane and the extraordinary, the trivial and the significant. It is my daily discovery that God is alive and well and as near as our closest breath.
Recently, I have also been a guest contributor to the “The Living Church” weblog, Covenant.
When I am not writing or teaching, you can find me walking by the bay, hiking in the mountains, or working in my garden, always contemplating God’s glory, and then rushing to go write it all down.
