Author has written 2 stories for Spiritual, and Religion.

As a teacher I have taught many classes on many subjects, but the one subject that has inspired me the most is the Bible. My greatest earthly desire is to know the Bible as well as I can, even from the Hebrew and Greek texts. For me teaching is the quickest way to learn, but writing helps me learn more deeply and thoroughly. Benjamin Franklin once said, "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."

I have written to learn and to serve myself, but I hope, somewhere along the way, something I've written might be meaningful to you, as well.

I intend to publish on Amazon, and would appreciate as much feedback as you can give me.

Ancestral Worship by Written In Red reviews
Living as a missionary among secluded, mountain people is not an easy task. The Huanapua are difficult to reach with the truth. Clutched by ancestral worship, they live day to day for the dead. They are buried beneath centuries of tradition. The greater mystery though, is what is buried beneath them.
