My New Book Has Arrived!

Are you ready to discover your Wordless Place?


Man, I am so excited! I am releasing a NEW BOOK titled Wordless Place! It's been such an adventure writing this compilation of devotional poetry. I love writing, and I especially love writing in God's presence. And these devotional poems were all written in His arms.

*Ephesians 2.10 – “For we are God’s masterpiece.” In Ancient Greek, masterpiece is poiēma, or poem, a created work from the Author of life.
