It Was a Wonderful Week!

Greetings, friends!

Tom and I returned home from camp late yesterday afternoon. I had a wonderful, restful time and am glad he urged me to go. My time of socializing and mixing with others, vs. alone time was a good mix, I think. I attended sessions and had a good time chatting over meals but, for the most part, I spent the other time at our cabin--outside on the deck when the weather was good and inside in a comfortable leather recliner looking through large windows to the lake and trees when the weather was cold and/or raining.

I had hoped to catch up on the book reviews I want to do, but managed only two or three, which I plan to post here soon. It is difficult to review a book when it's been a number of weeks or even months since I've read it, so I may give up on reviewing the books I've read since April, simply list them and hopefully be more able to write soon after reading books from now on.

It's good to be home, though I thoroughly enjoyed myself at camp, and enjoyed the connections and reconnections with the people there. There is much in this house that needs attending too, so as God gives me the energy, I intend to do what I can about it. There is so much I'm eager to share with you all, but I'm feeling compelled to do some housework so I'll write more later.

Thank you to all who were praying for me and us.

About the Author


I'm married (35 years in December 2008) with four grown sons. I love my city (Winnipeg) and my country (Canada) and promote them both to whoever will listen.

I have written a book that's recently been published about part of my journey with God. In it I tell how God confronted me with the same-sex attraction issues I've struggled with all my adult life and how he led me through them to a deeper and more meaningful relationship with him. God is amazing—his forgiveness, his love, his movement in our lives when we allow him and so much more. I suspect God will never run out of things to teach me or ways to make me grow and that’s a good thing (though often very painful).

I suppose I can say that what gives me the greatest pleasure in life is telling others about…

A Real Testimony
I finished your book. A real testimony to what God does for us.

I Had Tears Coming

I sat down to read it about a week later and ended up finishing it the same night. At first I admit I was a little bored and thought that the whole book was about a battle all in your mind, but as I continued reading this creeping thought came over me of a different...struggle in my own life, that I would never in my right mind have shared with anyone accept maybe God. I've mentioned your book to a few people because it stirs up age-old controversies that I have myself argued and wondered about, namely about whether or not homosexuality can be cured or just managed like alcoholism--you just have to stay away from temptation. I noticed at the end of your book that your struggle story …
