A Daddy Lion looks on tenderly at his cub

One of my images of Father God, a gift from a discipleship class facilitator at church, photographer unknown If you’re wondering where I’ve been, honestly, for a long time, the adoption process and keeping my home clean enough to please our agency was so stressful, I didn’t have enough creative energy left for any writing at all. Now I’ve improved on that front, only to take a class at church that required as much energy as college and took up a lot of free time and frankly after my chores and my course work I just wanted to play games, read, or Facebook on myRead More →

Last week, I told you about a time when I was questioning and doubting God, over a petty quibble, in retrospect, and all worked up in a tizzy, praying for answers.

I later wrote that testimony down, along with a three part follow up, and my original publisher for Web Surfer had published the testimonies as blog posts, but those got removed when I had to change publishers. Bear Publications has re-released the serial as Avatars of Web Surfer but doesn’t yet have a blog. However, New Authors Fellowship took interest in my testimonies about what God had done in my life andRead More →
