Discussions of Drugs, Alcohol, and Alzheimer’s

                             How to Face the Demons that Chase us

I am happy to announce that my blog, www.dailysignsofhope.com has a new partner. Michael Clark has joined me to share his battle with drugs and how he turned to God to help him conquer it.

I met Michael through Facebook. We built an instant friendship through sharing our hurts, defeats, and how we over came them. We are very similar, even though we went through a different channel. We both fought, anxiety, self doubt, low self esteem, depression, and even hopelessness.

I invite  you to mark www.dailysignsofhope.com as a favorite and check back often. Michael and I will be taking turns posting. Our different writing styles will reach out to different people, and hopefully help others to find help.


I have good/? news. I put the question mark there because it could be bad news, but not yet. I have been lucky enough to have an agent, and a publisher be interested enough in my work to have me send a proposal to them.

That was six weeks ago. I was told it takes up to three months before they answer back. Patience is not my best virtue, and this waiting game is hard.

You will be the first to know when I find out the results.


Today I am launching another free book give away. The new book to be given away is called, Moments This Good: The Softer Side of Alzheimer’s, by Bonnie Nester. I have read the book, and it tears at your heat and makes you laugh at the same time.  Moments This Good: The Softer Side of Alzheimer’s, is somewhat like a diary of special moments in the lives of  Bonnie and her mother Ruth. It will help the many people of today who have aging parents who suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s. I know because I have a 92 year old mother who is still with me that battles dementia, but she is still my loving mother.

Moments This Good: The Softer Side of Alzheimer’s is autographed by Bonnie. I met Bonnie at a Northwest writer’s conference. I have enjoyed her friendship a great deal.

Love, and Perserverence Win Over Evil

The Missionary, an outstanding Christian Fiction book that has all the ingredients for a good read, is still available for you to win.

It has tragedy, fear, espionage, action, defeats, victories, and good outcomes.

You don’t know who the bad guys are, and you don’t know if the hero is making the right decisions, and in many cases he isn’t.

Bill Carmichael, and David Lambert hit a home run with their effort to entertain the reader, and make a book you can’t out down.

I am giving away a copy of, The Missionary, with Bill Carmichael’s autograph and personal note, in a drawing that will happen on the night of September 7th.

Yes, that is the night that all of you have gotten back from your vacations and are looking for a good book to read. Look no farther.

The book has great endorsements from the likes of Jerry B. Jenkins, Left Behind  Series; Karen Kingsbury, Above the Line Series; and Terri Blackstock, author of Double Minds, and Last Night.
