Words. Prose. Poetry.
Books. Stories. Tales.
Heroism. Valor. Courage.
I love these kinds of words.
What is it about a great story that stirs our hearts? Gives us hope? Helps us dream?
We hear the words, “once upon a time,” or “long ago in a land far away,” and we (at least, those of us who love a good story) sit back and let our imaginations free.
The story takes us by the hand, draws us down a path of adventure and refuses to let us go.
I love to have my heart stirred. To have hope. To dream.
My dream is to stir the hearts of others with the hope of God’s word. I’ve had the privilege of publishing a photo devotional series with my amazing husband/photographer, Jon T. Johnston.
Currently, there a five books in the Be Still series, with the sixth releasing in November 2019.
