Who am I? I live in Maryland. I am passionate about my walk with the Lord. I love the Lord and His people deeply. My desire is to be used by Him to build His kingdom here on earth.
My life changed significantly and for the good when I retired from the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 2019 after spending 20 years doing social science research. I then made another drastic change in 2020 when I resigned from serving as an adjunct professor at a local university in Maryland after 24 years. I am now mostly doing what I have dabbled in a bit over the past few years but have always wanted to do more, and that is to write books to edify the body of Christ and equip the saints. I write to challenge and inspire Christian believers to move beyond the norm.
I earned my doctorate in child psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park. I tend to blend my knowledge of psychology with ministry as I often find myself addressing emotional issues in the church.
What will be the focus of my blogs? My blogs will mostly revolve around the topic addressed by my most recently released book or my upcoming book. For example, I will be releasing a revised and updated version of the High Call of Forgiveness at the end of this month, so the first series of blogs will be about forgiveness. I will approach the topic from various angles.
Why should you read my blogs? The primary purpose of my blogs is to edify and equip the body of Christ. I also want to bring wholeness to the readers – “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” (3 John 2, NKJV).
The topics that my blogs address will be relevant to the audience, and they will challenge you. They will call for action and will invite you to take a close look at issues you might not have thought about before in the way I’m inviting you to consider them.
Who am I writing for? My audience is primarily Christian believers – bishops, pastors, ministerial staff, aspiring ministers, and lay members (veteran and new converts) – and those who have left the faith and are trying to find their way back. Here you will find fresh bread from the throne of grace to feed your soul and spirit.
How can you get involved? I invite questions and comments via email from my readers. I will personally answer all emails sent to email@example.com. I also welcome your point of view if different from what I’ve shared.
What are my blogging goals? I want my blogs to inspire people and push them to deal with issues in their lives and in their ministry that they might not have dealt with before. I want to stir up the readers to reach for more, to despise the status quo and mediocrity.
This is my first of many blogs to come. My goal is to post a blog on every Sunday by midnight.
