Welcome to my Author’s Website. As a child, and through my early adult life, I possessed a profound shyness that kept me from freely sharing in many group conversations. Because of this tendency, I became great at listening, but avoided most situations that required me to hone my skills of being a conversationalist. I loved to listen in on conversations, but I seldom shared any thoughts. This gift of listening created an ability to ponder and reflect on topics, leading to my own, thoughtfully derived conclusions. In order to have a voice and to share my unique considerations, I began to write, (even though English Composition was my most challenging subject in my formal education). Writing became the means to share contemplations from the deepest recesses of my soul.
My inspiration for writing flows from the well-spring of life experience and the faith that has carried me through it all. I write in order to share the hope, grace and mercy God has for His creation. It is Jesus Christ to whom all credit flows.
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! And anoint you with His joy as you rest in the hope and assurance that God loves you beyond measure!
Thank you for taking the time to visit.
God Bless! Lanny

Angels Among Us!
One of the greatest miracles of my life happened during a blizzard in 1982 when I met my guardian angel driving a snow plow. It was Christmas Eve and we headed out to my parent’s house thirteen miles away. The snow was already a foot deep and within minutes of driving, the storm intensified. Less than a mile from our destination the roads were blocked by three foot drifts and there were no alternate routes. Finally a snow plow arrived to open the road, but within minutes, the plow slid into a ditch. We were stranded in a deadly storm and so I began to pray...
For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. Psalm 91:11 NKJV
