About My Blog

When I walk in the mornings, run errands or bury loved ones, I look for meaning. God gives truths in Scripture, and He shows me how they apply to life. Some of these times are joyful, some fraught with doubt or confusion. I don’t give pat answers but hope that the trails I pick through the forests-of-living give ideas and hope for readers traveling similar paths. 

As Jesus said in Matthew 13:52 “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

About the Author

Author Portrait

At ten years old, I fidgeted on a pew, yawning and commiserating with my growling stomach. A shaming thought pierced me, “God loved me enough to send His son, but I don’t love Him.” As the congregation thumped kneelers down, I prayed, “God, help me love you.”

I didn’t know how to love a remote God, but He answered that prayer through friends who loved Jesus like they just got off the phone with him. They showed me that God isn’t far removed but is knowable and wants a living relationship with me. With me?! What a mind-blowing, fantastic thought, yet more than a thought, a truth.

I began writing prayers then expanded to essays aimed at making spiritual sense of difficult things. I share my journeys in hopes that people on similar treks might find a parallel path. I hope my wonder at God’s creative genius will inspire readers to experience joy in God’s handiwork as well.

Though a former science teacher and reference librarian, I now write in answer to God’s strong pull.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1515282238037{background-color: #e8e4dd !important;}”][vc_column_text]Sue Ford, a fellow Christian writer, published an interview she conducted with me on how I came to write and the purpose of my writing.
