I love to write books that encourage and inspire others in their walk with God. Psalm 34:5 tells us, “Those who look to Him are radiant.” So, let’s journey together with eyes fixed on Him. As C.S. Lewis said, "Don't shine so others can see you. Shine that so through you, others see Him." My Bible study books and devotionals will help us do that.

You're invited to embark on a five-week journey through the book of James a small, but powerful book that presents wisdom and instruction for victorious living.
James wrote to encourage and instruct Christ-followers in how to live by biblical principles. But sometimes biblical principles don't make sense and achieving victory appears unobtainable. After all, how is it possible to have joy while suffering?
Some of the topics James addressed with the first century Christians are:
True religion
Faith
Testing and trials
Wisdom
Hurtful words
Judging others
Everyday conflict

Do these problems sound familiar? Spiritual growth requires training and perseverance. Get ready to go deep into your personal life. Be prepared to be challenged spiritually and emotionally.

We'll discover that we can love this journey that doesn't always make sense to onlookers but is explainable because of God's presence in our lives.

Grab a friend or two. Our journey through life is better when shared with a community of close friends who provide accountability, insight, and encouragement.

Seeing ourselves from God's perspective makes His grace, mercy, and forgiveness so much more fantastic. So, let's get started. The journey, complete with its joys and struggles, will be worth it.
