2 Corinthians 1: 3-4

 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.



My book PUZZLE HOUSE: A novel of healing and hope will soon be released (October 2017).  It’s a Christian novel meaning it’s fictional–not real. The main character, Rachel Summers discovers she has bilateral brain tumors as well as a genetic condition called NEUROFIBROMATOSIS TYPE 2. Neuro…what? That’s exactly what I said when I was diagnosed with it in 2012.

It’s been a difficult journey that will only end when I get to heaven. Even though the brain tumors are benign meaning non-cancerous, they are definitely not benign meaning harmless. They have wreaked havoc on my health. I struggle on a daily basis because of the effects of the NF2, but God has been faithful! He gives me peace and joy and hope! I know I’m not alone in having difficulties in this life–we all do! 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4 tells us to comfort others in their trouble just as God comforts us.

And that’s exactly what my goal is with this blog, Devotions from Puzzle House, as well as the companion devotional book of the same name. PUZZLE HOUSE may be fictional but Devotions from Puzzle House is about God’s love–and that’s very real!

God Bless & Good Reading!
