The Little Engine who Could not….

devotionalGood morning! I am very pleased and excited to announce that my first book is now available on in print and kindle format! I invite you to check it out and welcome your feedback! I would also like to take this opportunity to publicly thank those whose help, expertise and artistry helped me make this happen! First, Nick Caya and the Word-2-Kindle team for expert formatting and over the top excellent customer service! Thank you Nick! Second, Mike and Tracey Mishko of Mishko Photography for having the vision to take what was in my head and photograph it so beautifully! Mike and Tracey are responsible for the cover art that so wonderfully illustrated the vision in my head of a Little Engine who could not… as well as the photographs of the author! That would be me and I usually do not take good pictures! Thanks Mike and Tracey! You can access Nick at or on the Word-2-Kindle Facebook page. Mike and Tracey are available at or on their Facebook page as well. I know you will enjoy working with these fine professionals as much as I did!

In the introduction to the book, I wrote that “I believe as a Christian we overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the WORD of our Testimony’s. ( Revelation 12:11) Words form a testimony and by their very nature must be shared. And it’s in this sharing, fellowship with other like minded people that we find relief and help.”

In this spirit I am also pleased to announce that I will be inviting guest bloggers to blog on this site for us all. I have many friends who have inspiring testimony’s, are talented wordsmith’s and I know you will enjoy reading what they have to offer. Sign up for updates, you won’t want to miss a word!
