(Excerpted from my book No More Fear

Far too often, the fact that God is ever-present has been used in a negative way in Christendom. I know many who are terrified by this prospect because they see him as a fierce judge who is staring at them, waiting for them to mess...

If you have been following my blog, you know that I am doing a series on fear taken from my most recent devotional book: No More Fear. I begin each post with a Scripture passage. As you read the one I've included today, you may wonder what in the world it has to do wit...

In my mystery, Summerville, Tim must learn to conquer his crippling fear. It was easy for me to write about that because I've had to fight that battle too. It started when I was a child and was taught about Stranger/Danger. Once that idea was rooted in my head, I looke...
