Writing is one of my passions. I am a published christian author, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, and ministries. I am the co- founder of the award winning "One Stop Poetry." Tell stories with Bethany, Judah and Sean in Northern Uganda.

I know poetry is symbolic and cryptic and so many unexplainables. Poetry has been a way for me to move forward (and write) when my path seemed fouled. Use your words no matter how few to set your mind at ease. There is a waterfall of sentences just up ahead.
One of the villages we have worked in has built homes and adopted So. Sudanese orphans. Love is being poured into hearts and the children are doing so well. We would love to see peace in So. Sudan so that families are not displaced and children are not orphaned.
Poets United has a wonderful community and this midweek prompt is Peace on Earth
I just read a blog where a writer used reverse psychology to get her children to read. I’m up for whatever it takes to excite a child’s mind. Imagination is an amazing tool. Just ask any artist or writer.
The best gift for children this Christmas??? Books!!!!
Paddy the Panda is a story about a precocious panda bear and the lessons he learns about being okay with different and the importance of obeying the rules.
If you had known my son as a child, you would not be surprised that this is his life fictionalized.
If you are looking for stories that have a moral for your kiddo or your grandchild, Paddy the Panda Bear is a good choice. Christmas is just around the corner and Barnes and Noble is having a 20% off sale at the moment.
We also have a book coming out in 2019 that is about Uganda, the children and village life. The title is “Bethany and Me.” More information in the New Year. All of the profit will go to getting books into the village schools.
Above is a pre-k where we taught after the school was destroyed by a fire. These brave children helped us fight the fire. Classroom size is anywhere from 30 – 100 children with 1 exceptional teacher.
“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself. It is not far. It is within reach. Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.” – Walt Whitman
Can we sense our hearts yearning for more of the Lord? Here is a page dedicated to strengthening and sweetening our walk with Jesus Christ and our desire after God. May the Holy Spirit come, fill us, and guide us into a thousand discoveries of God each day!
