As a young child, Betty collected and wrote poetry. At the age of 14, in her grade 10 English class, her submitted assignment of a short poem was, much to her surprise, read by the teacher before the entire class. Poems were most often how she expressed herself to her family and friends. A collection of many of her poems including the one read by her English teacher, make up her first indie published book, "If I Had Known: Family Poetry." You can follow Betty at Amazon here.
If I Had Known
All of life has rhythm and rhyme! From very simple to sophisticated, this book of family poetry touches on the joyful, sometimes humorous moments of life with basic rhythm and rhyme. The more difficult times of loss and its resulting sorrow and sadness are written from the inside view of a family. Several of the poems are illustrated with the author's own photos.
With Genuine Christian Love
A small treatise with a huge message!
Very little has been written about the Jews during the period of the Reformation. Most people will have heard of Luther's Ninety-five Theses and will exalt him as the hero of the Reformation, which indeed, he was. It is less likely that they will know about his vitriolic outbursts toward the Jews and other non-conforming communities of his day. This book explores the significant ways in which the Protestant Reformation influenced the Jewish way of life.

Coming Soon! A Ministry Memoir
Update May '21
The new book is coming along nicely and it is turning into an almost entirely new manuscript from the now out-of-print, "Woman Pastor." God has been leading in this work and only as he has lead, have I written. Sometimes we go for days just thinking and listening. Other times we write for three or four days straight.
Please pray with me that the timing for this book will be effective for God's Kingdom work and that it will be written for God's glory alone.
We are still on target for a release date later this year unless we are picked up by a commercial publishing company. Please pray that God's will be done!
As the pieces of this story fit together one at a time, more information will show up in this space! A new book. A new title. Another new adventure!
