‚Äč     I love writing because I love God's truth. I love Jesus and his gift to us on the cross. God speaks to us through his word; we speak the truth of God to one another and to the world with words. Ideas are exchanged and refined with words. Friendships are mended with words. Great treaties between nations are forged with words. Scientific theory is expressed in words. Wisdom to a little child is gifted by words. Anything you would like to do anywhere in the world, from a small task to a great one, will be done better for your pursuit of the mastery of words. Eager to grow in precision and artistry as a wordsmith myself, I delight in bringing young wordsmiths along with me, equipping, encouraging, and exhorting them as we go.
