Welcome to the new website!

For those of you have been following my blog, this is the new location (in case you have it bookmarked).  After several months and lots of hard work, I am happy to announce I now have my own website!

I had been advised some time ago to get a website for professional reasons, but I put it off for a long time.  I just felt a little narcissistic to have a website all about me!

Hopefully it will be so much more than that.  If you look around, you will see that there is a spot for PARENtEEN, a ministry for parents of teenagers.  Plans are in the works to upload all the old PARENtEEN archives, as well as link to resources helpful for both parents and teens, as well as youth workers.

You might also see the picture of a beautiful tree at the top of every page.  This tree has particular meaning for me.  It is located beside the lake in Winona, MN, and it has been the source of inspiration for me every summer for the past five years.  The park at the lake in Winona is one of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.  There are miles of trails around the lake, which is situated at the base of the bluff.  This particular tree has a nice bench underneath and a view to kill for.  I have sat under “my tree” for hours while I wrote, rested, and prayed.  It is definitely one of my favorite places to write, so it seemed appropriate to be the theme for my website.  My desire has always been to be “like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.” (Psalm 1:3)

Have a look around at the website and let me know what you think.  We are still in the process of adding content, so be sure to come back again soon.  My sincere thanks to Anthony Plopper, my very patient and kind web designer, who did a fantastic job.   Also a big thank-you to my daughter Emma, my newly hired website coordinator.  Emma is going to help get more goodies on the site for you, as well as manage my Twitter account.

For those of you following the blog, you will need to resubscribe.  There’s a little box on the right hand side of the blog page for you to do that.

Thank you all for your wonderful support and encouragement!
