Using Our Gifts

on May 30, 2021

Romans 12: 6-8 ~ ““We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.”

Ultimately, God’s will for each of us is to glorify him by telling others about Him and living our lives in such a way that others will accept Jesus as Savior.

Beyond that, I know that most Christians are looking for ways in which they can make a difference in the world by “being the hands and feet of Jesus.”

For both of those reasons, I began writing some seven years ago. I have been encouraged by my readers’ feedback. It has been a wonderful experience to use my writing gifts to honor our Lord.

My latest book, Cat’s Cradle, was enjoyable to write from a child’s perspective. It is the fourth and final book in the Simon Says series.  The following is the back cover copy. It is available on www.Amazon.com/books in e-book, paperback, and hardcover.

You may want to read the previous books in the series, first. However, by reading the Prologue in Cat’s Cradle, you should be able to understand the story well enough to thoroughly enjoy it.

When Mary learns that Simon—the man who kidnapped her last summer, and now dominates her recurring nightmares—is actually her biological father, her world turns upside down.

She is frustrated and fearful.

Confused about family relationships. 

Unsure about the permanence of friendships. 

And it comes out in her behavior at school and at home.

Faced with life’s new reality and an uncertain future, will Mary learn to forgive others, accept responsibility for her own actions, and place her faith in her heavenly Father?

It’s a lot for anyone. But she is only six years old!
