Writing it helped me realize why I became a writer in the first place -- and why I choose to read what I choose to read. Thank you for chiming in here on my Goodreads author page.

It has been almost counter-cultural (and often unpopular with others) that my time alone with God is my highest priority. I have been called “selfish” and “inflexible” — even rigid — about my Quiet Time. But I insist, because it is my necessary food.
