Stories Only We Can Tell
God hardwired our brains for stories. Most of us enjoy — and remember — Jesus’ parables far more than Paul’s letters.
That’s why I tell true stories in my nonfiction and write film and play scripts in the drama genre. My fictional stories for screen or stage seek to honor God and entertain people with interesting drama undergirded with biblical truth.
Scripture doesn’t shy away from the raw and messy. The Bible is full of stories about real people with real problems. Yet in the midst of brokenness, the hope of redemption awaits.
I was blessed to receive 1st place for Film Scripts at the 2018 Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. With me are the Co-directors, DiAnn Mills (left) and Edie Melson (right). Photograph by Mary Denman.
Since 2013 I have been a member of Word Weavers International. In August 2018 I joined a new online group of screenwriters and playwrights. We create faith-based art for the screen and stage.
In June 2018 I began serving as a Mentor with Word Weavers. I act as a resource and guide for five chapters that meet in person. Those fiction and nonfiction writers encourage one another as they weave words for the glory of God.
Are you fulfilling your created purpose?
Prior to turning my creative attention to the big screen, I left pastoral ministry to follow God’s call to write a book for high school graduates. Choose: Fulfill Your Created Purpose shares the advice I wish I’d had during my transition to adulthood.
In fact, middle-aged and senior citizen readers tell me this book is helpful in their seasons of life!

I live in East Tennessee with my family. I’m fulfilling my created purpose by studying to become a licensed counselor.
