As with any art, writing lets me use words to paint a picture that can send a message and evoke emotion in the hearts of my readers. Writing also give me the opportunity it gives me to slip away in to other times, other places, and see into the lives of other people. Writing is an adventure and I love it.(less)

…so that the world will know we are His

            Recently, I
was listening to a talk Francis Chan gave at a Church Leaders Conference. I
love listening to Francis Chan because he has such a gentle, yet powerful way
of presenting truth, and he does it in a very simple way.

“Yes," Tanner nodded. "I have great appreciation for neoclassical architecture. The ten pillars in the portico give the building a remarkable feeling of dignity and charm."

Bethany lowered her eyes and stifled a giggle. When Tanner put on an act, he put it on well.”
Carol Kinsey, Until Proven Innocent

“Bethany handed Tanner the mug of berries and drew in a shaky breath. "I'm really not afraid of dying..." she was quiet for a moment. "Only of people believing something not true of me. I guess I shouldn't care. God knows the truth. That's all that matters.”
