Hearing and Heeding

Hearing and Heeding

The saddest commentaries to come out of a natural disaster such as the Eastern Seaboard of the U.S. just experienced with Hurricane Irene are the accounts of people who ignored/defied warnings and evacuation orders only to be swept away by the torrential weather or have some other form of weather related tragedy strike. Being a bit of a weather junkie, I spent a fair amount of time watching the Weather Channel last weekend. One of the features of most reports were… Continue

This may seem like an odd, even out of place topic for a newsletter entitled

“E-ncouragement for Mountain Takers”! The reality is that there is plenty of discouragement in life, and in the pursuit of new territory.

More than a few climbing teams have sought to conquer one of the “premier” peaks on the planet, investing thousands or tens of thousands of dollars to do so, only to be stopped from reaching the summit by…

Kita' Gentle Message: What Do I Take? ( Sunday, Aug. 21, 2011)

Here’s a question for you. If the fire alarm sounded and you had 30 seconds to get out of your place, what one thing would you take with you? When I first heard this query, I immediately thought, “Easy enough, I’ll take my bag with keys and wallet … and I thought and I’m still thinking, “But what else would I take?” Something practical like my laptop? Sentimental like my family photo? Cherished like my pillow that I’ve had forever? Valuable like my gold rings and… Continue

Shoot the wounded - review

As a contemporary Christian novel for youth, SHOOT THE WOUNDED delivers the gospel with enough angst that it is sure to meet with the approval of today’s teen. It delves into relevant topics such as teen pregnancy and family violence, mixed with the usual boy-girl relationships and coming of age themes common to YA fiction. In this book we see that being a Christian isn’t easy, and it certainly doesn’t mean you are perfect. SHOOT THE WOUNDED is the first in a trilogy by Canadian author Lynn…

PROMISES a review

PROMISES by E.G. Lewis was certainly not what I was expecting, and in this case that is a good thing! Rather than a fluffy romance, I got a well written novel with substance. Sure, there was romance, but this book is so much more than that. It is the epic journey of a woman who rises above the trials of life to become the person she was meant to be all along. It starts when Mary Jane is just 15, on the eve of her mother’s funeral. From there it takes us through her struggles at…

Yes, autographs, please!

    Well, it's happened! I just signed my first Kindle autograph. I didn't think it was possible and I always have said that that would be the last hold-out for readers to not go digital: not getting the authors signature.

    But made it possible to get a digital autograph from an author.

    I visited the site to see how it was possible and there was a request waiting for me already. So, I went through the…

Kita's Gentle Message: We are All So the Same (Friday, August 12, 2011)

Some of you may know that my Dad is not well and that his diagnosis is terminal. I’ve been going home (a two-hour drive) most weekends since last November to spend time with him and Mom. Watching him grow weaker has not been easy, and seeing his wife of 60 plus years weighed down by a heart close to breaking, is so sad. What has been uplifting though is the family pulling together. Truly full of grace! Beyond this, the sharing of my story has elicited similar tales of… Continue

You Never Know

You Never Know

Last Thursday night I could not sleep. I was having one of those unexplainable awake times, that are never fun, but sometimes have unexpected results. As often is the case in these night seasons I began to pray about whatever came to mind. I was not particularly burdened with anything when I went to bed, so it was not a time of petitioning for my own situation. Rather I was praying for friends, family, clients, the nations, whatever came to mind.

While I was… Continue

Kita's Gentle Message: The Speed of Life

I don’t know about you but I am feeling as if life has speeded up – life-changing situations are occurring with unusual frequency, and with no warning – to immediate family, friends and acquaintances. Am I the only one who is noticing this? It’s as if the movie of my life has been set on fast forward and the scene that I want to savour a little longer, is over before I can appreciate or fully understand it. I’ve read that the earth’s pulse is increasing and that’s why… Continue
