Common Row to Hoe

Dear Reader, I just finished reading a really good book that a relative of mine wrote. She self published it, so it’s not one you could find anywhere, but it was so good, so real, and so true. Maybe that sounds cliche, but that’s how it came across to me. I don’t know what you’re…

Resurrection

This is a song that I wrote a few years back. I was going through a lot at the time, and sometimes when I’m going through tough times, playing the piano is such a comfort to me. There have been a lot of times when I’ve sat down at the piano and somehow my fingers found a…

Waiting on God’s Time

This is a poem that I wrote nearly ten years ago at a time in my life when I had a lot of questions and very few answers. If your life has brought you to such a place, I here dedicate this poem to you. Dedicated to all who have felt lost and confused, Who…
