What a fun question, Marcia! I'm so glad you liked "Moments & Days"!

This is going to sound like a dodge, but honestly, it's not. My favorite book is the one I'm praying and dreaming of writing next. I cherish every single one of the books I've had the honor of writing.

However, I've had "writer's burnout" - times when I've been depleted by the demands of projects and deadlines. An elixir of rest, time with people, and perseverance in the work is usually the cure. The proportions of each ingredient vary depending on the case and circumstances. There is no precise recipe. (less)

The Church should ________

The Church should ________


– Assist the poor. It’s should be our job, not that of the government.


– Take care of victims of abuse. We can do better than a secular social service agency will.


– Fight the darkness and anti-Christian orientation of our culture. We need to return to our Judeo-Christian roots.


– Stand for the unborn. Abortion is wrong, and we must contend for life.


I hear Christians who...
