Click on the following links for articles, Bible studies and more.

Short Bible Studies  I love to dig into the original meaning of words. Years ago, I would sit at my kitchen table with my Bible and my three-inch-thick Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance (emphasis on exhaustive) and thumb through the fine print for the Greek or Hebrew definition of a word that caught my attention. It’s easier now with eSword (free from Rick Meyers). Like everything, it’s just a click away. Enjoy these short Bible studies. Use them as a devotional or share them with a friend. Get to know the Author by studying the Book.

Given to Hospitality   On this page you’ll find out what the Bible has to say about inviting people into your home, entertaining tips, great recipes for feeding a crowd—and hilarious stories about our experiences hosting people in our home and being guests in other people’s homes. You don’t want to miss this!

Creative non-fiction  Here you can read my personal testimony, creative non-fiction pieces such as Kids Cause Pain  Manners in Marriage?, Watching my Husband Pass and others. You will also find samples of memorials and speeches. Contact me for your writing needs.

Guest Bloggers and Book Reviews  This is where you’ll find book reviews, guest bloggers, links to my favorite blogs, and much, much more.

My Novel  Read excerpts from my upcoming novel,  Leah, My Beloved, a poignant story of the Old Testament wife of Jacob. Leah is betrayed by her father, rejected by her husband, and scorned by her sister. But she is chosen by her God. Leah is a story for every woman who struggles to find her worth.

My Music  Download songs written and sung by me and my late husband.

    I’m not surprised I enjoyed your blog. When I was blessed to get a few peeks at Leah, My Beloved in our ACFW Scribes group, I knew it was a book I wanted to read. Praying that it gets published soon.
