Why I Chose to be an Indie Author

When one does an online search of “indie author” or “self-published author,” he or she will get a slew of opinions.  Some are favorable, and some are not as favorable.  It seems the most common unfavorable views come from authors who are already published through a traditional service. I can understand from the perspective of... Continue Reading →

The Courtesy of Friendship

What do you expect from your friends?  That may sound like a silly or strange question.  I would expect most would answer this question with expectations of respect, love, mutual interest, humor, and a willingness to make you a priority when applicable.  In return most people would say they would expect themselves to do the...

A Time and a Place to Judge

No one wants to be judged.  There are few absolute statements that are true, and that is one of them.  It is our nature to want to be seen and heard as people, not viewed through the lens of our mistakes or differences.  We all know mistakes and bad things are a part of the... Continue Reading →

Do You Need Approval?

“Secular” isn’t a Genre.

I’m a Christian.  I love Jesus, and do my best to serve Him in what I do.  In this journey as a Christian though, I have heard secular come up in sermons and casual conversations as a genre.  Christian is a genre, Religion is a genre, but that doesn’t mean that is the case with...

The Unexplained: Men in Black

It is said that those who have seen UFOs are often visited by men dressed in black suits and fedoras.  These men supposedly threaten UFO witnesses into silence and claim to be a part of the government.  Such phenomenon served as the inspiration for the movie “Men in Black.”  However, some are adamant that this...
