Hey Everybody,

Welcome to my blog. I’m glad you’re here. I’m still getting to know my way around this site, so hopefully we’ll bump into one another as we get acquainted.

To see the new blog posts I’ve written, click on the titles on the right hand side of the page. They are posted from newest to oldest. If you’re interested in more information about me, you can click on any of the tabs at the the top of the page.

It would be really terrific if you’d sign up to follow this blog through e-mail notifications. I’ve been trying to remember to send out e-mail blasts to let you know I’ve written new posts, but sometimes I forget. Plus, maintaining a readership here helps introduce me to new people that I haven’t met yet!

Many of you will notice that my grammar and punctuation is atrocious. It drives my brother crazy, but try not to let it bother you – it doesn’t bother me. I’m a work in progress, so I’m alright with my mistakes.

That should just about do it for now. I love hearing your feedback, so please feel free to join in the conversations. If there are things you’d like me to write about or questions you may have, just send me a note and I’ll be happy to give it a go.

If you want to e-mail, feel free to contact me at:     sogreatajourney@yahoo.com

On to the journey!




  1. I just read and enjoyed your “Tunnel of Transitions” post. As a pastor’s son I can remember many transitions in the tapestry of our family life as well. Moving was always traumatic but also held some hidden treasures that revealed themselves over time. The passage that God encouraged me with over the years was Mark 10:29. The promise, that those who had left home and family for the sake of Christ and the gospel would receive back a hundredfold in this age and the age to come, gave hope and comfort in the uncertainty of the transition. God has replaced the loss of home and family with surrogate homes and families each time. You have been one of those surrogate sisters, Donna, and I am grateful for the encouragement and sharpening (and laughter) that knowing you has provided. Knowing you and Bob and your three sons has been a blessing in my life. May the Lord raise an expectancy in your heart to meet our “replacements”.

    • Thanks so much for your kind words! Our years at Westside as parents and my years there in the office are certainly a highlight of our time in Oregon! Thanks for the reminder of how big God’s family is – that’s sure good to know when you’re leaving one part of the pasture for another, but rest assured – there’s no replacing some of the sheep, and you are one of a kind! Thanks for the hours of Greek and Hebrew assistance on my books and articles, and also for providing a larger historical context for the military projects I’ve worked on. You’ve certainly played a significant part in my development as a writer!

  2. How exciting! I look forward to reading! …now to catch up on what you’ve posted so far…. lol 🙂
