Joy in the Unknown

A little late, but here is my reflection from the month of October: “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.” —Psalm 94:19 NIV The “Unknown” is not a comfortable place to be, especially if it triggers feelings of isolation or of being misunderstood. Many insecurities are unearthed and we can find… Continue reading Joy in the Unknown

Coffee Addict: Entrusting Your Tastebuds (and Your Life) to God

Coffee is incredible! I drink it every day: not because I’m addicted, but for the experience it brings. I don’t get a caffeine rush or energy boost that others claim to experience, neither does it keep me awake at night when I’m tired. In fact, coffee does the opposite for me. There is something in… Continue reading Coffee Addict: Entrusting Your Tastebuds (and Your Life) to God

“Be At Peace” A Short Story

Jodie pulled my blue lifejacket from the back of the minivan and handed it to me. “Do you have the map?” she asked, a hint of panic edging into her voice. “Don’t worry, I’ve been planning this trip for over a hundred years.” The sarcastic exaggeration might have been much, but it was ridiculous to think we could get lost canoeing around the shores of… Continue reading “Be At Peace” A Short Story

Introducing Roxanne – A Novel Excerpt

The following is an excerpt from my current novel (in progress): Straddling the Void. Scanning the bar for familiar faces, I was both disappointed and relieved by the sea of strangers crowding the pool tables and dance floor.
