The first book in the Joshua series has three stories in one – Joshua, The Journey Home; Joshua and the Children; and, Joshua in the Holy Land. They are told in simple Parables about a man named Joshua, and the impact he has on the people in his life. If you read this book, do so with an open mind and heart, and you will discover a unique take on our beliefs and opinions as they pertain to deity. The structure of religion detracts from the faith we are meant to have, according to what is written by all walks of life, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, etc… and yet we all seem to gravitate toward that structure. The bottom line is, there is only one God, regardless of what name we choose to call Him. The Word tells us that Jesus never intended faith to be dictated or purchased. Faith is given freely, in grace, and not through the ‘cookie-cutter’ forum we call religion. This theme is the thread throughout the telling.

What a profound delight it was to wander through the pages without the intrusion of someone else’s interpretation of how or what I should or should not believe. I read on my own terms, and found peace in that.

If you read and liked The Shack by William Paul Young, you will like Joshua.

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
