Helicopter Pilot

I’ve got another writing idea to share. This time it is for a novel! I’m learning toward a medically-related field of vocation like a helicopter pilot, because of a great theological angle . . .

Respect and Neighbor

I’ve had a nugget of a thought. Maybe you guys can help me untie the knot a little. It has to do with respect and neighbor.

Free Marriage Booklet

I love free resources, and even more I love seeing the Church in action, sharing the merciful love of the Gospel as well as precious wisdom along the way. Want a free marriage booklet? A good Lutheran one?! I do! And, I’m very excited to see that someone has had exactly that idea. Below is a link to a post with a download. A Lutheran pastor is looking for feedback on this pre-release form, and he hopes to have a finalized version available around Eastertime. AWESOME!

Shared Idea: Older Fatherhood

With a little regret, I’m going to share a writing idea I’ve had. I’d really like to tackle it myself. I’m just nowhere close to imagining a time I could do so! So, if you’re interested in a rarer format, single-person narrative delving into older fatherhood and a son’s sacrifice, here you go.

Friendship

Time to share an idea. When I was a young pup in the topic of vocation, I thought Luther missed an important one: friendship. Now “I can see clearly now the rain has gone,” and I have an idea to share. 🙂

Firetruck

Describing the process of backing a u-haul or trainer into a driveway is awkward at best. Just like doing it. But the other day I saw a firetruck returning to its station. Two guys hopped out, each to one side, presumably to help with traffic, blind spots, and making it inside. Awkward? No. It was a thing of beauty! Smooth and precise with a priceless professional quality!

Filling Time

The time has come upon me. Instead of filling time, I’m getting swept away in the season of pre-filled, stress-inducing over-scheduling. I can’t say it’s altogether a bad thing. We’re prepping for a vacation, returning to some housework, and going back to school. To my horror, the public schools around here will start August 10th! Still, it’s hard to push down regret for all those imagined times to write I missed this summer, so let’s re-imagine, if you will, in an ongoing effort to keep writing in our schedules.

Reorganizing Lutheran Author Page

It’s occurred to me that my page for living Lutheran authors could better demonstrate some of the breadth of subjects Lutherans cover. So, I’m reorganizing the Lutheran Author Page!
