Welcome to my Author’s Website. This site has a three fold purpose. First of all, it has been developed to share the written words that flow out of the deepest recesses of my heart. I hope they serve as an encouragement to you; maybe even provide a bit of inspiration for your own situation as you respond to the challenges of your world. Secondly, I have designed this site to share the story of my journey. That's why I've included descriptions and links to access my published works. I've always referred to my writing as life journaling. I pray that through my words, you will be able to relate and reflect on the situations you have encountered on your own personal journey and circumstance of life. Most importantly, it was designed to provide a glimpse into the faith that has sustained me throughout this life. I pray that you experience the depth of God's love as you peruse, ponder, and reflect on the written prose that I share.
Feel free to share any of the works contained on this site with family and friends. However, please provide adequate notation for anything you share. It is my desire that through this material you might catch a glimpse of the One known as Jesus. May He fill your heart with peace! Bless you with His grace! Cover you with His mercy! Bring healing to your circumstance, and anoint you with His joy. It's my prayer that you find hope and assurance in the knowledge that God loves you beyond measure!
Thank you for taking the time to visit.
God Bless! Lanny

Lanny has once again partnered with Deep River Books to publish his latest work, Amazon Culture - Exploring the Jungle of Narcissism. Its release is just weeks away. This provocative classic provides deep insight into the world of narcissistic abuse that's perpetuated through gender inequality. Even before its release Amazon Culture has received profound reviews. Check out what others are saying about Lanny's latest published work:
In Amazon Culture, Dr. Cook guides you through the rhetorical jungle of narcissism utilizing gender bias and left-wing politics into the reality of abuse that cuts across both sexes. It’s relevant for individuals who have felt the wrath of narcissistic abuse from either a chauvinist or a feminist. Lanny exposes gender inequality as the façade it is; a ploy concealed within the foundation of egotistical pursuits. It’s a mask that gender abusers cower behind in the pursuit of self-promotion through their twisted agenda. The material in this book will enlighten you as well as provide the means of dealing with narcissistic abuse, as it provides insight into the characteristics and the impact narcissism creates on all parties involved. I certainly learned some things about this disorder that gave me pause to view it in a new light.
Amazon Culture will shed much needed light on those wanting to understand more about gender biased narcissism. It is engaging, informative and provides practical guidelines to identify a narcistic abuser as well as how to respond to them. It provides hope that through Christ you, as the abused, can find healing as you move onto a path filled with self-worth, value and healthy love. Jeremiah 29:11 says it best “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Blessings to you as you read and learn from this timely and enlightening book!

"The Season for Singing"
My love calls to me: Arise, my darling. Come away, my beautiful one. For now the winter is past; the rain has ended and gone away. The blossoms appear in the countryside. The time of singing has come, and the turtledove's cooing is heard in our land.

Back in the day when I was teaching high school students, I heard this phrase a lot. This quaint little idiom was always thrown out in the midst of many an interaction with a student trying to manipulate the situation for their own selfish gain. Now that this short, indignant phrase has become popular within even political debates, I felt the need to share insight into the true idiocy of this rhetorical expression. I hope you enjoy it!
