WELCOME TO MY BOOK PAGE.  I write on the SPIRITUAL JOURNEY, the SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES, and ALIGNING WITH OUR GOD-GIVEN SPIRITUAL GIFT. You may notice a theme. I am a poet, speaker and author. This means most of my books have companion workshops and retreats on offer. Please let me know if you’d like to talk about that; otherwise, enjoy. Whatever season you’re in, may you be blessed as you read and perhaps take a moment to respond in your own words, as you pour a cup of tea, grab a journal… and curl up with a good book.

A book of poems about walking through pain, grief and loss; finding the joy, remembering to be real because God knows the depth of who we are
and longs to give Roses in our season called Winter.

poetry to bless the heart

A book of poems on seven of the Spiritual Disciplines: Solitude, Silence, Contemplation, Forgiveness, Presence, Vocational Alignment, and Sabbath-Rest.

poetry to point the way

This is my 8th book of poems and explores the blessing of resolution, acceptance and spiritual maturity (aka a grace-filled outlook on life, love, and age).

poetry to affirm how far we’ve come

Poems that are: Simple. Direct. Felt. This book is an invitation to do all three: be simple. Hear directly what the Lord might be speaking to your heart.
Feel it and live into it: do not fear the ‘ouch.’

poetry to sooth, embolden

This book of poems follows the three stages of the spiritual journey: the vision (Jacob’s Dream), the wrestling with it to make it our own, and the peace–the incredible peace–that follows hard on the heels of those who seek to follow God.

poetry to go deeper

This is a meditative book of poems; clean, thoughtful, and honest.
It is meant to be a quiet thing.

poetry to grow quiet

A book of poems that come from a place of being still, sitting quietly, daring to ask questions that may reveal things I didn’t know before; these poems are not as straightforward as my more recent work, but there is a feel to them I really like.

poems to ponder, take notice

Write to be Read, Speak to be Heard: a communication guide to the five filters is a precursor to my latest: a book called 5 Navigators (available soon!). Both are about the spiritual gifts found in Ephesians 4:11 and how they shape the way we communicate. This book, Write to be Read, is for anyone wanting to take their professional or vocational role as writer, host, or speaker to the next level, in terms of being in greater alignment with their God-given spiritual gift.

Briefly, in this book the Teachers among us, I call Scholars in this book. The Pastors are the Social Connectors. Evangelists are Change Agents, Apostles Adventurers, and the Prophets are the Mystics. In my next book, I unpack the five gifts in great detail. Stay tuned. And, if you’re a communicator by calling or trade, then check this book out too!
