I am so excited! Matty, the manger mouse has found a new home at Mast General Store in Boone and Hendersonville. That’s right. Matty has crept into the hearts of those Mast General Store executives, just like he quietly sneaked into the manger to sleep at baby Jesus’ feet the night Jesus was born...

  Looking back on 2012 I have so many things to be thankful for. Good health, a family that loves me even when I’m not lovable, a God who erased my every sin with the cleansing power of His shed blood, and my writing. My new novel, The Color of My Heart was released in late October and is...

I love watching hummingbirds. Right now there are anywhere from four to eight fluttering back and forth fighting their way to the sweet nectar inside the artificial feeder hanging on my porch. I not only love watching them but also enjoy listening to the sounds of their wings as they beat rapidly...

Are miracles still taking place in this crazy, topsy-turvy world we live in? Yes, I believe they are.   What about the ability to get up in the mornings? Isn’t it a miracle the way blood pumps through our bodies, and our lungs retract and expand, pulling life-giving air into our being? Man...
