Stepping Stones

Below are a list of some of the things I was blessed to publish in 2017–did not count articles and essays that I do on a regular basis. These accomplishments are stepping stones along the path of my writing. I hope they are of help to others in their path!

Have been thinking, praying about how to revive this blog so that it is useful to more people. Tomorrow I will announce the new schedule and new focus!!!
