I’m a Jesus-follower, God-lover, and writer.

Life can have so many detours and very few good ones. Maybe you’ve taken some yourself: a debilitating illness, a friend’s betrayal, losing a loved one through death or divorce? My books and stories are about finding joy on those back roads.

I’ve been there. In fact, I still am.

I have a chronic illness and for more than a decade, my whole life has been one big detour. There have been days when only God’s love has kept me going.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33

Did you see it? John 16:33 says, “you will have trouble.” Isn’t that the truth! We’re not promised rose gardens or castles. Life is a long road and it’s easy to get lost. But I do believe in happy endings because I know the One who made me. Eventually, the heroes and heroines in my stories learn to focus on that bright light on the horizon – and on the One who created it.

Remember: those back roads could be a detour or a destination. Put your trust in God with every bit of your being and learn to love your neighbor. Then you’ll find your joy, wherever you are.

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to check out the rest of the site. (Peek in the closets if you like.)

And be blessed with joy,
