Yesterday we saw the Tomorrowland movie with friends. Fun movie, but it left me sad. The whole idea was that the world stopped dreaming and lost hope, leading to destruction. What was missed was the key to hope--faith in God.

We live in a culture that is redefining itself without God and finding hopelessness, despair, violence and a government that upholds the wrong-doer instead of those of honor. But God has other plans: For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. --Jeremiah 29:11

If we hold onto Him, study and know His Word, His will and His way, our lives will be beacons of Hope for a hurt and hurting world. That hope doesn't need a special pin, only a heart willing to follow Him.

Sometimes we wonder about ourselves, about God and where He is in our lives--especially when the way isn't all that clear. Click the link below for my poem: INDECISION.

About the Author

Writing has been my life since I first picked up a pencil before I entered school. I learned the alphabet and the word AT. After that I went down the alphabet rhyming words. It was intoxicating! 

By the time I left third grade, I was writing stories and knew one thing--I wanted to be a writer. (I also wanted to be a jockey, before there were women jockeys. I was deep into the Walter Farley "Black Stallion" books.) 

I geared my education to become a writer. In high school I won writing awards and sold my first short story. During college I began selling my stories and articles. I graduated with a comprehensive degree in Journalism--a very good foundation for any type of writing. 

Now, many books later, some traditionally published, some with small publishers and some self-published, I still write for my career. (Some of those books won awards.) I have a regular column in a regional newspaper. I write short articles for Internet clients. And still develop book projects. 

What I write reaches all ages. Interesting how, as my own children grew up, I wrote stories for their different ages and stages. I write both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and historical, mystery, fantasy and even romance. I also write about the moral, cultural and political issues of the day.

 I write from a caring, life-affirming, Christian perspective. You'll find here books and writing to challenge, convict, encourage and lift up. 

Enjoy the journey. CRS
