Part One – The Jer1ch0 Decept10n:

“I am a Hindu, I am a Moslem, I am a Jew, I am a Christian, I am a Buddhist.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“I am a deeply religious non-believer.”
Albert Einstein

“At the intersection of science and spirituality lies the human mind. The Jericho Deception is a psychological adventure into the interplay of mind and spirit. Science and religion, mystery and mysticism.” BookBrowse


Jeffrey Small’s first book, The Breath of God reviewed here, motivated me to want to know more. More from the mind of an author who jettisons off the edge of real life, and weaves fascinating psychological thrillers with threads of authentic scientific studies, into an imagined one. In the case of The Jer1ch0 Decept10n, Small uses research from noted neurophysiologist Dr. Michael Persinger, neurotheologist Professor Andrew Newberg, and the psychology of mystical experiences from the noted Harvard Professor William James.

This is a story about murder and treachery. A story about a neuroscientist’s invention: a machine with the power to create religious ecstasy ….. if madness doesn’t find you first.


Now if you’ll excuse me, the wee morning is still pitch black with winds that howl and rain that rallies against my windows, making this a perfect storm for reading.

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.
