Lent devotions consist of chanted psalms. Hover over Speak­ing, above, and click on Podcasts. Palm Sunday is coming up now, the begin­ning of a week of wrench­ing rever­sals, from triumph to despair and back again. Listen to Psalm 118 and contem­plate the rever­sals in your own life.

Have you yet seen the latest video uploaded on my YouTube channel? I read my children’s book, Jeremiah Bunnyhopper’s Scary Night. Jeremiah is a little bunny who claims, “I’m not afraid of anything!” But he has a secret, and it almost kills him!

JB Dark and Scary Please watch, and let me know what you think! Just click on the YouTube button above, or here’s the direct link. I am actively seeking speak­ing engage­ments. I especially love to address themes of forgive­ness and recon­cil­i­a­tion. Please contact me through my “Contact” page.

The best and safest haven from a hectic life is hiding deep within the center of your being where you can find soul-satisfying oneness with the Creator who loves and sustains you. Spring­haven Castle repre­sents that place of safety. In the center of the court­yard, where you are now, an overflow­ing spring sparkles in the sunlight, repre­sent­ing the Eternal Life brought by God’s Holy Spirit. When the stresses of daily life crack the walls of even that haven, it is my prayer that my words—fiction, nonfic­tion, spoken, or written—may help you repair the breach.
