Overview

A sampler of articles from my first blog introduces readers to curiosities like celestial puppies and Fantasy Monopoly. Christian Character includes topics like success, blame, truth, being offended, risk, angels, and the United States government. From stringing beads to losing a beloved horse, these twelve short articles offer readers inspiration and food for thought.

The last seven years have been an eventful journey from equine professional to Christian author. In what I consider more of a blessing that a curse, that first blog with more than 600 posts was hacked by the Viagra folks. No one could save it so the whole thing was deep-sixed. It was a shock to see what happened to my status on search engine results when that many articles and links disappeared overnight. The blessing is I that was a really good horse pro at the time but not such a great writer. I'll never be a great writer. The only artistic ability I have - if any - relates to horses and making things simple.

God brings us along in His time. Only recently did I commit to the occupation of author. I've found it a real discipline to let work from years ago stand on its own, but it's necessary. If you're always looking back you'll miss what is either a great opportunity or brick wall directly in front of you. The first lesson I teach riders is to look forward to where you want to go so the horse has a fighting chance of reaching the destination of choice. God also expects us to move forward, leaving past mistakes and inadequacies behind.

Meet the Author

If there's anything special about me at all, it is that I am profoundly simple. It wasn't always that way. Some of my more interesting lessons about simplicity were delivered by the stallions I trained over many years. The only way to get a 1500 pound hairy mass of testosterone to offer obedience and loyalty is to earn it. You can't fool God and you can't fool a horse. They can spot "fake" from a thousand yards away. No blessing is complete until it is shared with others. I share experiences drawn from time served as an introverted preteen, an extroverted teen, a figure skater, a college drop-out living in an unfinished basement, a non-traditional college graduate, two-time grad school drop-out, successful business consultant and professional speaker, a battered wife, a cherished wife of over thirty years, an anti-politician in politics, a community leader, a greener-than-green horse owner, a National and World Champion equine professional, and as a secure and blessed child of God. Each one of us has a unique story to tell and a purpose. If you're reading this be assured that God has a plan for your life - and a sense of humor. It was gratifying to discover that messages I delivered as a motivational speaker were correct. Today I know where those principles are found in the God's Word. What is true is always true - in every era, circumstance, and location.
