Preview to Homeless Hearts -Read the Introduction

Homeless Hearts – Coming Soon For many years I worked on this book, Homeless Hearts. I’m still working–editing and rewriting. This isn’t a book about physical homelessness, but about the heart condition that keeps people on the street long-term and, ironically, the same conditions that keep the rest of us living with a homeless heart […]

Homeless Hearts Progress Update

I just made progress on Homeless Hearts! Percentage wise, I’m still around 33%. I seem to keep adding and deleting pages so my percentage isn’t moving. But I am making progress and that feels good.

Homelessness isn't always physical.

Homeless Hearts-Journey into a Homeless Heart

“We will never end homelessness until we deal with issues of the heart.” Excerpts from Chapter 1 Lori’s words rang through my mind and stuck there as an unforgettable memory I’d rather forget. I looked into the faces and eyes of people at the shelter. Some smiled and seemed rather joyful while others oozed pain […]
