Self-Publishing Takes Forever! Here’s Why.

Self-publishing a real book involves a lot more work than the paperback I produced for Mom’s birthday last year. Who knew? After spending weeks designing “a look inside that sells” to upgrade the paperback, I decided to rework the manuscript. There was so much I’d left out because of the deadline, and I wanted to […]

Reduced to Praise

God speaking to me, 1/13/17: Leah was buried in a place of honor (Genesis 49:31). Perhaps the passage I read today in Genesis 29 reveals a glimpse of how God molded her character such that her husband would honor her in the end, though their marriage was unfavorable in the beginning (to say the least!): […]

Are You Saved?

A friend wrote, “I really struggle with whether or not I am saved,  because I don’t see fruit, and I am still struggling with the same sins.” This was my response: Hebrews 12:1–3 mentions “the sin which doth so easily beset us.” We all have our own “besetting sins” — the things we habitually turn […]

What’s App Notes

I just spent about an hour copying and pasting all of the notes that I thought would be very helpful (and that I didn’t want to forget) from my WhatsApp group. (Clarification: I don’t have the names of who posted what, so when it says “I” that’s not necessarily me talking, but somebody in my […]
