Lessons from the Open Road

A couple of years ago, the idea of writing a devotional about the lessons I learned while riding a motorcycle came to me. I had no idea what I was getting into and how much writing devotionals would minister to me as an author. I jotted down notes for weeks, hoping to come up with enough lessons to take the reader through a month. Lessons from the Open Road ended with 33 lessons, each followed by Scripture and prayer.

Sometimes life is hard. Sometimes learning new things is hard. Just when I thought I’d mastered the parking lot where I was learning to ride my little Yamaha Virago starter bike, I pulled out, forgot to hit the brake, did an Evel Knievel, and jumped a short concrete wall, landing in some trees. My poor little bike limped home with a hole in the crankcase the size of a quarter. J-B Weld to the rescue!

I’m stubborn, too stubborn to quit. After I recovered from the sore neck that resulted from my stunt, I climbed back on the old iron horse. Eventually, I graduated from the parking lot and hit the streets. When I’d learned to ride well enough to satisfy hubby, he bought himself a new Harley and I inherited his anniversary edition Harley Davidson Sportster. And, when I graduated with my masters degree, you’d never guess what I wanted. Yep, a new bike. I became the proud owner of a Screamin Eagle V-Rod (picture attached.)

All good things must eventually come to an end. I enjoyed my days on the road, but found another passion. Writing. I work a full-time job and since there’s only so much time in the day, I have to choose what’s most important to me. The bike had to go. Occasionally, I miss it, but for the most part, I’d rather be writing. I’m hoping the devotions in Lessons from the Open Road will minister to your heart as much as writing them did to mine.

Lessons from the Open Road is currently available in ebook format and will be coming soon in print. I had planned to list it at no cost, but Amazon wouldn’t allow me to do so. I’ve listed it at the lowest price Amazon allows, 99 cents, and all proceeds will be donated to my church’s building fund for the new church that’s currently under construction.

Dance With the Divine


My latest book has been published – without fanfare, a publishing contract or an agent!  In the amazing new world of on-line publishing, anyone can write a book and have it transformed into an e-book, at no cost.  Unbelievably easy to do, and you are instantly available to anyone who either has a Kindle or can sit and read in front of a computer.

Dance With the Divine is the first in the GuiDance Series of spiritual fiction.  If the book were printed on paper, the back of the book would read something like this:

Dance with the Divine is a book of profound spiritual truths as revealed to an angry and rebellious teenager. The most common questions that have plagued humans for centuries are confronted by a troubled 13 year old whose family has been torn apart by guilt, shame and despair.

  • Why am I here?
  • What purpose do I have in my life?
  • Why do bad things happen to good people?

The answers may surprise you.  The knowledge imparted by this slim piece of spiritual fiction will intrigue you.  But the profound nature of spiritual truths that resonate in this story will be instantly recognized by your very soul.

Dance With the Divine is a guide to living a life of love, peace, joy and gratitude.  A simple instruction booklet for beginners to learn the steps of the greatest dance of all –how to create your very own dance with the Divine.

If you are intrigued, curious, or just want to know more, please visit the Kindle store on Amazon.com and check it out.  And if you buy and read the book, could you also write a review on Amazon? I will gladly repay the favor —

Blessings!
