Tragedy Turned Upside Down is written for anyone who is
going through dark times, or is trying to make sense of tragedy in its aftermath. There’s so
much hope and help in that book because God brought it to me during the darkness, and I
share it so that you can have the inspiration needed to keep moving forward in those days
when you need it most.
A couple of my favorite books are the ones I haven’t sent to the publisher yet. Join my author
updates email list to get some encouragement, stay in the loop on free resources I offer, and
hear about new books when they go to print.
If you want to know who I am though, it’s not about the writer’s byline. Just tune in to spend
time with Willie and me on our YouTube Channel, where we share encouragement for your
life and spiritual fuel for your journey.

Most importantly though, I want you to know I care about what you’re going through. So
many shoulders held me up during my most difficult challenges. If you need someone, I hope
you’ll reach out to me. Even if I can’t be physically present with you, I will pray for you and
share in some of your journey with you.
