Take a look around. Do you need a little encouragement or maybe a kick in the seat! 🙂  You’ll find both here! Pick up a devotional. Whether you’re looking for a workbook style, a daily devotion, or just a topical study, there’s something for everyone on my Devotional pageOr maybe you are looking for a great read. Christian historical fiction is my favorite read.  I love going to real places with real people. If that’s for you, check out my Christian Historical Fiction section. Like short stories? Want to see Bible characters with a little more meat on their bones? I’ve written on Joseph’s servant, Abigail, the thief on the cross, and the woman at the well, just to name a few. I’ve also collected my posts into three volumes called Snippets.

GRANDMOTHERS! and moms! God’s Fishy Bank is my first children’s book.  It’s one of my favorites. Our little fishy friend tells his side of the story of Peter fishing for taxes! My newest children’s book is called Pip and Pop–Joy in Serving Jesus.

Beyond Common Sense is a place to “come apart and rest a while” (Mark 6:31). Those are the words of Jesus to His disciples–words that we all need to hear! So, take a look around and make yourself at home!

Because of Jesus, Wanda 

What’s next?

That’s what I keep asking myself! Writing posts is still possible but podcasts don’t seem to happen. If you’ve never done that, you’d probably be surprised how much time it takes. I would love to sell more books but that’s on hold as well until…? Am I writing? No new novel on the horizon. There may be a devotional in the wings. (How does “Forever Full Moon” sound?)

But, I did write a short story called “The Faithful Son” based on Luke’s account of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15). (FYI, do you know what the word ‘prodigal’ means? If you’re like me, you thought it meant ‘the returning, wayward,’ but it actually means, “characterized by profuse or wasteful expenditure,” which also fits the story. It can also mean ‘yielding abundantly.’ In that case, the father in the story could be called the Prodigal Father!)

Have you ever wondered about the older son, the faithful son? If you would like to read this short story–the product of a vivid imagination, which is HOPEFULLY sanctified as well, I’ll send you a copy. Just sign up on my mailing list and I’ll send it to you. If you already have in the past, please bear with me and try it again, and I’ll try it again too! According to Mailchimp, I created an account in 2018! I remember trying to figure it out and being very confused! So, here we are in 2022, trying it again! YOU WILL NOT BE SWAMPED WITH MAIL, I can assure you! LOL!!! I just thought this could be a little bonus for you, faithful followers!

Success! You're on the list.
