Abiding, Steadfast Joy Overflowing When Injustice and Violence Reign


These two books went live today.  The first: Abiding, Steadfast Joy subtitle “Never Again to be Bound in a Life of Quiet Desperation” has been essentially a 3 year labor of love.  Written, rewritten and transformed many times.  Somewhat like my life.  Intertwining bits of my life, this book mostly expounds on Biblical Doctrine and Theology.  I share with you all that God has taught me through many trials, failures, and sorrows; every step of the way leading me to know Him more.  Then, as I discovered He was my greatest treasure; He also taught me 3 foundations of truth from His Word which transformed my heart to rest in His Abiding, Steadfast Joy, regardless of the circumstances or storms this journey brings.

Through a study of Nahum, Habukkuk, and Zephaniah; I brought their message into our modern times.  Answering the questions of “Why, God?” Providing a foundation of faith and hope; even, as we see so much evil in the world and in our nation.  With so much sorrow and despair, this book I wrote to guide you into discovering God’s Perfect Plan of love; amid this chaotic world filled with life’s storms.



May God’s Grace, Love and Mercy Fill Your Hearts today.
