The Soul Of A Man

What lies in the soul of a man? Love, laughter, heartache and sorrow? Pride, fear, rage and contentment? The true measure of a man lies in his heart and in his soul. This collection of enlightening stories personifies the sentiment, faith, resilience and love embodied in the creation God made in His own image. The Soul of a Man is a Divine truth and an affirmation of the passion running through the minds of men where hearts and souls are bared.

Donovan and Rachel Kerr are married and very devoted to their religious convictions, but each has hidden dreams that are far form pure. The desire for glamour, fame and riches, in conflict with the quest for honor, power and nobility, threaten their marriage and causes chaos in their lives. Secrets begin to surface that lead to evil encounters.

They meet Marcus Henderson, whose murky and sinister lifestyle brings about an eruption of temptation and danger–far more than either are ready to face. Nevertheless, their Christian experience and deep love for God and each other overcome the evil influence of a man who has the potential to ruin their lives forever.

Can they rekindle the light that once burned in their hearts for one another while illuminating a dark and destructive soul as well?

Through her trials and tribulations, will Nichole remember to put her trust in God and reaffirm her faith in the Lord, or will she see her marriage and gambling habit as bigger than even the God she serves?

Hello everyone! In your chosen genre, it's sometimes a balance to write to uplift God's Word, yet not be too preachy. How do you balance the two?

What are some books you've read recently (not including your own), that you would recommend?

Hi Tee C,

My goal is to write the story that God lays on my heart and hope it engages the reader. I add a light inspirational message that will encourage the reader and help them to see that God can move in any situation. I try to weave the message in without battering the reader over the head.

I'm currently reading The Blue Enchantress by M.L. Tyndale. It's great. Very exciting and evens deals some with spiritual warfare, something not shown in very many Christian fiction books.

Tell me what genre you like, Tee C, and maybe I can recommend some other books.
