I’ve written two books. I blog. Occasionally, I summarize my thoughts into 280 characters and tweet them to everybody and nobody. I post updates on Facebook and “The Gram” (as I heard a cool twenty-something call it). I’ve even written a children’s Bible curriculum. No, this isn’t my resume. The point I’m trying to make is,Continue reading “What the Bible Taught Me About Writing”

3 Things I Expected and 3 Things That Surprised Me About Releasing A Book.
My latte not only tasted delightful, but it looked good too. How accomplished it must have felt to bring joy to my senses of sight, smell, taste, and touch all wrapped in one warm ceramic mug. That is, if a caffeinated beverage can feel accomplished. My remaining sense, my sense of hearing, was also beingContinue reading “3 Things I Expected and 3 Things That Surprised Me About Releasing A Book.”
When I was 10 years old, my dad took the position of pastor at Emmanuel Community Church. Six weeks later, my mom died suddenly in our kitchen while sitting at the table.

I tend to be pretty traditional.Continue reading “All the feels.”
5 Outsider Observations about the 2016 ACFW Conference
Here’s the deal. I write non-fiction. For those of you who slept through Language Arts, or are accountants, that means I write about things based on facts, real events, and real people.
