If ever there was fiction that should be read with an open heart, this one is at the top of my list.

For those who believe in the Word, you assuredly know that the Word was written in parables. Thus said, Rooms is a parable for edification of the Higher Power, and not for the rolling of the eyes when something far-fetched takes us into the fog of a twilight zone.

Sometimes a book will open right in front of you that hasn’t been opened in years for no apparent reason. When I first read this book in 2010, I just read it. I recall thinking of it then as okay. Entertaining. About a week ago there it was again, misplaced, otherwise I would not have seen it. Instead of returning it to its proper shelf, however, providence intervened, and I read from it:

“What can you ever really know of other people’s souls—
of their temptations, their opportunities, their struggles?
One soul in the whole creation you do know:
and it is the only one whose fate is placed in your hands.”
—C. S. Lewis

This is the story of Micah Taylor who receives a letter from a great uncle he never met, written 25 years earlier. A letter that will take him on a spiritual journey he never expected.

I believe we see what we are meant to see at the time we need to see it most. This time, unlike in 2010, I didn’t just read this book. This time, I paid attention.

Rooms is a journey back to the path we are meant to walk. And the cool thing is, it doesn’t even matter what you believe, or by what name you call your ’Higher Power’, the message is the same for all of us.

Extraordinary first novel.

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.
