Help Wanted

Dear Readers, I need your help, and trust me, it’s not easy to ask. It means being transparent enough to admit fear and weakness. It means trusting and obeying in a whole new way. 

Such a large crowd of witnesses is all around us! So we must get rid of everything that slows us down, especially the sin that just won’t let go. And we must be determined to run the race that is ahead of us.
Hebrews 12:1 CEV

Way back in the last century, Daddy, Buddy (my older brother), and I went fishing a few times. I don’t remember us catching many fish. What I do remember is that Buddy never could put a worm on his hook, or take the rare fish off of his hook. 


In a mixture of helplessness and big brother bossiness, he would hold out his hooks for me to tend to. Buddy trusted me to take care of what needed to be done. And I displayed a modicum of obedience.


I’m going fishing again, Dear Reader, fishing for souls, and I need your help with the hooks.

Jubilee and the Stinky Fish is the working title of my second book. 

I know, I know, I told you in January that I was taking a break from building a platform. But God seems to have different plans.  So here I go, frightened and frail.

​HELP WANTED: Tribe members who are willing to be sounding boards, shoulders to cry on, mentors, critics, and voices of reason. Minimal pay, some evenings and weekends. 

For the past several weeks, there’s been a gnawing to share mine and Jubilee’s journey to publication. We’re so much closer than we were a few short months ago. I have no idea how long this journey will be, but I don’t want to go alone this time.

(Tom, James, and Mary were indeed boon companions on the way to publishing and marketing Life with Bobby and Bonnie. It seems, though, God is calling me to more. Psst! That’s you.)

It’s better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work, share the wealth. And if one falls down, the other helps, but if there’s no one to help, tough … By yourself you’re unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn’t easily snapped.
Ecclesiastes 4: 9-10, 12 MSG

Dear Readers, will you be my tribe? Will you journey with Jubilee and me as we try to reach kids and their stakeholders with the voice of Jesus? ​​​
