In 1994, I was sitting at our dining room table with my wife, Julie and our three sons. My oldest son, then seven, glanced up from his plate of spaghetti, looked me in the eyes and said, “Dad, did you know to God, obedience is more important than sacrifice?” He went back to his dinner; unaware of the decision I had to make that evening or how the words would change our lives...
He is Risen! Happy Easter to you all! What a strange Easter this is. Julie and I celebrated communion alone with each other. No kids or grandkids around, no Easter baskets or chocolate bunnies for us. Definitely, no dressing up in our Easter finest or church service with raised voices of Alleluias. At least I got dressed today and even put on clean jeans! Since watching a Maundy Thursday service over Facebook live, acknowledging Jesus’s suffering on Good Friday, contemplating the mystery of the Harrowing of Hell, and now celebrating His glorious resurrection, I sense a most profound time in all our lives.

I am an avid reader, and have not only enjoyed but been blessed by your book, Tree of Hope. It is without a doubt the best book I have read in a long time. The characters are memorable as are their struggles to know God and His will. Also, they face the age old question of how God allows such raw tragedy n our lives.

But we can see His love at work in this book, and we also see that our God is still a God of miracles.
Thank you for writing such great fiction with the truisms of Christianity interwoven in the plot.
Thank you so much for reaching out and thank you for the encouragement!! I am so glad you enjoyed The Tree of Life!!
You would be doing me a huge favor if you would consider writing a review for the book on Amazon, if you haven’t already (and the other if you read them). It is one of the best ways to help get the books into readers hands:)
Many blessings to you, my friend…Tim
