Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

Soon after we moved to the Tucson area, I received a call from a man I'd never met before, a person who works with KFLT with Family Life Radio. He'd heard about our plight and asked if there was anything he could do to help. He and his wife have been such an encouragement to us.

The other day he called to find out how our family was doing and to invite us for a "movie night." The kids were excited because they have a huge TV. Andrea couldn't go, so I took them and we ate buttered popcorn and apples. The kids chose "The Incredibles," a movie about a superhero family. I hadn't seen the whole thing in a while and it was good to get lost in the story.

There's a part in the movie that really got to me. Dash, the young son of the family, has been told all his life that he can't use his powers, he has to hide them. He can't run like he's able to, he has to rein in the speed. When the Parr family finds themselves on an island with an evil foe, Dash's mother says he should run as fast as he can. Dash looks with wide-eyed amazement. He can't believe what he's hearing.

In a scene where Dash is being chased by the villains, he begins to run fast, faster than he's ever run before. And in his haste to make a getaway, he runs out onto the water. His legs are going so fast that he goes straight across the top, and he doesn't realize he's on water until he looks around. Then he looks down at his feet just touching the surface and he laughs this little boy laugh, just a subdued chuckle that springs up from somewhere down deep, and you didn't need any dialog to know what he was thinking. "This is so cool!"

I think that's how we're meant to live every day. Not that we have superhuman abilities, but that we have an unlimited power source available to us that we rarely tap into. The Creator of the Universe calls us his child. We can live in his "kingdom authority" as Adrian Rogers used to say. Those moments have been few for me, but I want them to be more frequent. And I'm beginning to think all I need to do is glance around and have a good laugh.

Whoa!! Your family situation is heartbreaking. I will be praying for you and your family.

I just accessed your site to see if there was another book after "Dogwood". I finished reading it at 1 a.m. because I could not put it down. It was without question one of the best fiction books I've read ... and I read about 150 per year.

Please keep writing adult fiction!!

Thanks for your kind comments about Dogwood. I'm hoping you get a copy of June Bug that comes out this summer. It was written through the toughest time of our lives, so a lot of the emotion and struggle comes out in the story. Thanks for the encouragement!
