After many years, starts and stops, I am finally almost finished. By this time tomorrow, if all goes as planned, Homeless Hearts will be available for purchase.

Empty Tomb

Resurrection Reflections – Empty Tomb

Resurrection Sunday, more commonly referred to as Easter, passed more than a week ago. Then why am I writing about it now? Because Jesus’ death on the cross wasn’t the end.

Beautiful Ride

Beautiful Ride – I Want it. How do I get it?

King David made some extremely bad choices—not being where he should have been, adultery, cover-up and even conspiracy to commit murder. And he pretty much got away […]
