Wouldn't you know. Now that we turned our furnace on, the weather has turned warm again. The good news? We can keep it down so it doesn't come on until that chill hits again. Saves on cost. I am glad it is on though and that the furnace has been checked so it is safe for the winter.  

God has a heart and it beats for you and I. He waits for us to realize our need. Check out my devotion "The Call of the Heart" by clicking the link below.

We all have dreams. Sometimes we never move beyond them. Click on the link below to read my poem "How To Make a Dream Come True."

Every year, it seems, at least one snake sneaks into the house. After the weather turned cold, I didn't think I'd find one this year. I was wrong. Click below to read my latest Hub column Pity the snake that slithers across my doorstep.

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
