Why are stories important? How have they shaped our thinking and view of the world? Come follow my stories and see what we have in common. Ducks In My Pool, is about a family of ducks who chose our backyard as a safe place to build their nest. For over ten years ducklings have hatched and swam in our pool. I realized God gave me a metaphor through the ducks to show His love and safety as I trust in Him.

Red Tails, Go See It
I saw the outstanding movie, Red Tails this weekend and I want to encourage people to go. I was at the edge of my seat from the beginning because the characters came alive in the George Lucas film. He had to overcome many obstacles to make the movie because the big wigs in higher up places didn't think it was profitable. Let's prove them wrong and take your family. It is based on a true story about a group of Black Pilots who faithfully served their country in WWII. They had to overcome racial discrimination and prove they were as worthy as their white counterparts. They were given the mission to escort bomber planes to the inner most part of Germany and did so with honor. They prayed before each mission for God's strength and I believe He was with them. It's a story worth telling. Go see it soon. My 90 year old mom is dating a pilot who served in WWII so I understand now what a sacrifice he made.
