RESTING UNDER THE BROOM TREE                         

In 1 Kings 19:3, we read about the prophet Elijah fleeing to the wilderness after receiving a threatening message from Jezebel, a Phoenician princess who became the wife of King Ahab of Israel. Jezebel was a worship...

"For there stood by me this night an angel of God

to whom I belong and whom I serve..." Acts 27:23

As I was growing up, my grandparents, Fausto and Anna (Cassiani) Berardinelli, often talked about taking me to Italy to show me the towns where they were born. Even after I married, they spoke of someday traveling with my husband and me. Unfortunately, their dreams of us traveling together never materialized. 

  

As the years passed, my husband and I traveled every year...

I’m not a person who’s usually at a loss for words—either in speech or on paper. In
fact, I not only talk a lot, I write a lot. So, when I found my passion for writing, I embraced it.

FEED MY LAMBS (Part One)

My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me.  —John 10:27

Throughout Scripture, believers are referred to as lambs and sheep. Within the Word of God, as in nature, the dissimilarity between lambs and sheep is simple: sheep are mature, and lambs are babies.

In its first year of life, a lamb requires gentle care and feeding, subsisting only on milk. Once a lamb matures, it's able to handle solid food and become part of a flock...

I believe that writers can write about any subject. And, as we all know, subjects have
a way of finding writers. The Marker was just that kind of story: the subject found me.

​It happened after I purchased a Civil War memorial grave marker in an antique
shop. After investigating the authenticity of the post-war piece, I learned it was
taken from a Natchez cemetery in 1952 from the grave of an Unknown Soldier.
Two things immediately happened: I decided to write a book, a...
