You can experi­ence ALL of my children’s book, Jeremiah Bunnyhopper’s Scary Night on my YouTube channel here. Jeremiah is a little bunny who claims, “I’m not afraid of anything!” But he has a secret, and it almost kills him!

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.
