MAY — One-Year Anniversary!

Hello Dear Reader,

Welcome back to another issue! This one is quite special, as some of you may have guessed from the title: one year ago, “The Abditory” was published! First, let me just say that I cannot believe how quickly time as flown by. Your incredible support is vital, treasured, and my gratitude cannot be put into words for you and the journey we have traveled together. While we anxiously wait for its sequel to reach publication, I have something special for you! But first…


Some spring humor…

Verse of the Month

“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must also forgive.”

Colossians 3:12-13 ESV
