About the Book

I’ve often wondered, and I’m sure others have too, what goes through a person’s mind when trials and tribulations arise in their life. I’m not just talking about the difficult times but the joyful ones too. We ask ourselves questions like, What makes a person stay in an abusive relationship when it’s so easy to walk away? Why do some people cry after receiving good news? Why is the homeless man smiling while living in a cardboard box? Why did the mother who just buried her murdered child forgive his murderer? These are just some of the questions we ponder. How blessed I am that I get to share some of those stories with you. Silent Thoughts is just that, the thoughts of a person who may be going through similar situations in their life. Since we don’t know their journey, who are we to judge them? I think it’s best that we simply listen and learn as their situations teach us about life, and while we’re doing that, who knows, a few secrets may be revealed and save us a little pain or increase the joyful life we’re already living. Silent Thoughts is the book you’ve been waiting for to answer some of those questions. It’s the missing piece to your puzzled mind, so let it fill in the blanks and exercise the beliefs you were unsure about. I’m sure, when you’re finished, a few of your questions will have been answered. So as always, sit back and relax, and let some of our stories do the talking for a while. Enjoy!

About the Author

Being a retired combat veteran of the Gulf War and Operation Iraqi Freedom, I have seen the horror and devastation that war inflicts, and that helps me maintain my humbleness. I can honestly say I have lived and experienced every phase of my writing, and my journey continues. My steps have been ordered, and I’m simply taking them one at a time. Sometimes they’re small steps, sometimes they’re gigantic leaps. Nevertheless, each one is taken with humility and gratitude. Having been blessed with a very complex imagination, it’s easy for me to understand why some of my stories can be baffling at times until they’ve been deciphered and broken down. In other words, you may have to read them more than twice to get the moral of the story. This is what happens when you’ve been given a gift, and you believe that gift is also your purpose in life. It doesn’t matter what others think, say, or do, it’s up to me to stay the course and live by faith, so I have and will continue to do so until I’m told otherwise by my Father. I’ve finally realized that it’s not about how much fortune or fame I get out of my gifts and blessings but more about the people I help while on my journey. And even if that’s only one person then my purpose is validated not by the reader but by my Leader, and I definitely know who that is. My life has not always been easy, but it has been wonderful. And for that I’m forever grateful. I’ve traveled around the world and seen some amazing things, but nothing compares to home; there lies my paradise, and I visit it as much as possible because you can never go home too much when you don’t live there. Now I get the privilege of sharing some of those adventures with you. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did writing them, and most of all, I pray you learn from them.
