What Moving Has Taught Me About Living

Moving can teach a thing or two about life. I've seen a fair share of new addresses. While there are military and missionary families that have much higher stats than I do, I've moved abroad twice and lived in rental houses, permanent homes, guest houses, basements, and campers.

How often do we … Continue reading Along the Back Roads

The Power of the Impossible

Three months, fourteen states, and 12,000 miles later, I'm energized and ready to dive into another writing project. My next manuscript, In Lieu of a Plot, will … Continue reading The Power of the Impossible
