September Books

I’ve written several Christmas stories inspired by the nativity narrative. Christmas Child was probably the most farfetched story—and also the most fun to write.

God dropped another door in my path this week. One of our Sunday preachers at the nursing home brought a visitor: his sister, all the way from Harare, Zimbabwe. It turns out Tapiwa Gwenlisa “Gwen” Marange is a lot more than my friend’s sister and my sister in Christ. She’s also an international mover and […]
