I was planning on having my novel published next, in January of 2015, but it will have to be postponed. I will still be planning on having it published in 2015, but not in January. I want it to be the absolute best that I can get it, so I am having to postpone its publication so I can have more time to work on it. However, my newest volume of poetry, "Standing at the Top of the Hill", will soon be available. I hope that it is a blessing to all that read it.(less)

A Pause To Remember (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Aug 25, 2013 06:38PM
Description: I didn't know much about the story of Columbine when it first happened. The Lord will sometimes make things known to you at a time when they will have the greatest effect. He did this for me with the Columbine story. When I heard how Rachel Joy Scott died at Columbine it really touched me deeply. I would later discover that not only her death, but also her life was a great testimony for the Lord. This is a poem from the book “Shadows Over February” that I wrote in remembrance of this precious dear sister.
