Fine Art Photography Inspired By Natural Creation & Wholesome Reading For Your Family's Entertainment



DOGHow do you feel about animals?  Do you own a pet or pets?  While I am not currently a pet owner, I find animals extremely fascinating.  I love to watch them as they play and interact with one another and with humans.  After creating them, God brought them to Adam to give them names.  (Genesis 2:19)  Imagine the pleasure he must have gained from observing each one intently before deciding what to call it!

In my newly released book DESPERATE HEARTS, I decided to give one of my main characters a pet, a dog named Ginger, nicknamed “Gee-Gee.”

In TIME FOR HOPE, my 2007 release, the Jefferson family are horse lovers.  Although I’ve never ridden one, I think horses are some of the most beautiful of God’s animal creation.  They possess such awesome beauty and grace as they gallop with unbridled energy, rear up on their sturdy hind legs, and pound the ground with their hooves.  You can expect to see more of these incredible creatures in some of my upcoming sequels in my HOPE series.HORSE

Like us, animals are part of God’s grand and impressive creation–and whether or not you’re an animal lover, you have to admit that they are amazing!

HAPPY READING!  From my heart to yours!

  1. Smiling. Thanks for this post. I just love to sit back on our porch and watch the animals gingerly frolic in our yard. I feel honored that they allow me to watch in awe. 😊
