“You are now a published photojournalist,” Byron said as he complemented my snow pictures appearing in "East County Magazine," a local news outlet with an online presence (click here to see the pictures).

‘You have such a way with words,’ I said. It felt so good to see my pictures published. As good as that feeling is, it pales in comparison to how I feel about launching my first memoir. I consider it my most important life's work, the beginning of a ministry I am called to initiate.
The presence of so many lost sheep in my life is no accident. The light bulb has turned on for me and I see things differently while others still live in darkness. Some lived in the light in their younger years and then something happened causing the light to burn out.
My job is to help find the light switch and convince them to turn it back on. There are people around me who can help, however, some are afraid to come out of their comfort zones. I thank the Holy Spirit for taking that fear away from me and for giving me the opportunity to publish daily all the good that Jesus is doing in my life.
Any credit for becoming published goes to the Holy Spirit and all honor and glory goes to the Father, the One who watches out for all of us without fail.
