Dear Reader,

There’s a conversation in the movie, “City Slickers,” about everyone having one thing that’s more important than anything else. (This is where you hold up one finger.) THE most important thing to you. 

It’s hard, right? I’d much rather hold up three fingers than just one. My three fingers would be:

  • giving God glory by serving His kids;
  • loving on my family (one husband, one cat, two kids, and two granddaughters);
  • and writing.
When Daddy died we found letters I’d written him while he was on the road when I was in 1st grade. (Yikes, that’s been more than a minute ago.) Point is, I’ve loved writing nearly my whole life, and now I’m blessed to write for people like you, Dear Reader.
I’m super glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll take a look at some of my stories under the “An Open Book,” and “Blog” tabs. Better yet, drop me a line at to let me know which ones resonate most with you. In the meantime . . .
