Skeletons in the Closet

Every family has them...those skeletons in the closet we pretend aren't really there.  I'm in some hot water now because I wrote about some family skeletons thinking I had secured permission from others.  The truth is my first book would never have been released without my mother's blessing and I thank her for allowing me the opportunity to share our family story.  To the others I've offended, I'm truly sorry.

The walk-in closet in my master bedroom isn't big enough to hold all the skeletons in my family.  Hats off to my dad for admitting he was the black sheep of his family.  Once he bathed in the blood of the Lamb, he became white.  I praise God for never giving up on dad, no matter how far away he drifted or how many skeletons dad stashed away in his home.

The only thing scarier than opening my closet and facing all those skeletons is looking in the mirror and seeing my own skeleton.  My second book is all about the revelation.  My siblings each have their own story they may want to write about some day.  That will be up to them.  I have my hands full with "The Caveman in the Mirror." That skeleton will be out of the closet on March 17, 2013.  If you are a follower of this blog, you are already automatically entered to win a free copy.  Click on the "Join this site" button on the right margin and sign in to become a follower.  Thank you for supporting this blog.

Hi Michael, Graceful apology there to the offended. That is for sure one of the pitfalls of being such an honest candid writer. Super excited about the man in the mirror release in 2013. Love your new countdown widgets.
