The Devil Within

Battling the Heroes and the Monsters

How many times do we fight ourselves only to lose? If you were to ask me, I'd admit to losing count. Like David Banner, I pretend to keep a tight grip on the reins, but the monster within is always lurking, waiting to claim control. Oh yeah, I remember! Banner is always angry. (Does that really work though?)

What about wrestling the demons to the ground with logic? After all, rationale and intelligence should take care of all our problems. But does it?

I think Spock would disagree with that summation. Humans and Vulcans seem to have the same problem when it comes to the monsters buried deep down inside. I think he would say they will keep raising their ugly heads no matter what we do. Maybe not in such "descriptive terms" but you get the point.

And then there is those awful personality quirks. You know what I'm talking about. Those little ticks and picks that no matter what we do to get rid of them, they keep coming back. We thin…

Buckin' and Writin' in Deadwood

A Booksigning and Much, Much More

Fans and Readers, join me in June! 💕

I will be in Deadwood, South Dakota the weekend of June 7-9 for Wild Deadwood Reads. This is a multi-genre, multi-author event with almost one-hundred authors currently slated to attend. It's going to be an awesome time of meet and greet, signing books, and reading with your favorite authors!

As if that isn't enough, the schedule is filled with sponsored events like a fabulous evening with the bull riders, announcers, stock contractors, bullfighters, and excitement of the PBR rodeo (a personal favorite of mine!), and a guided, multi-shopping tour around the historical town of Deadwood and nearby attractions of Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Monument.

Pack up your family and friends and head to Deadwood for an amazing weekend. You don't want to miss it! Check out the details at the Wild Deadwood Reads website here.

A God View

The Roller Coaster
I recently watched a video by the motivational speaker called Josh Shipp on Godtube. He compared parenting a teenager to a roller coaster. The teenager's the seat and the parent's the lap bar. At the beginning of the ride, the lap bar is tugged on to make sure it is secure. Then the ride ensues... it is pushed and pulled to determine whether or not it will hold. To discover its trustworthiness.
Maybe you'd like to see what he has to say for yourself?

VIDEO Parenting a Teenager Summed Up in 90 Seconds

What'd you think? Kind of mind-blowing, isn't it?
Well, let's bring it down...closer to home a little bit. What if we were sitting in the roller coaster and God was the lap bar?

It's easy to listen to advice when we're talking about other people, yes, even when it's our children. After all, our children are someone else. They have free will and can make mistakes of their own...mistakes for which we are not accountable. And we are adul…
