JOSHUA, THE JOURNEY HOME

1 Dec

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

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
