As Dr. Paul Branson struggles to make sense of the world after tragically losing the love of his life, he embarks on a journey to help the children of the African Bush — a dream they’d shared for years.


He has little hope in recovering when Leza, a little girl with cancer steals his heart and changes his life.

Believing he has found purpose in Africa, Paul’s world is turned upside down when Quinn, leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (the LRA) kidnaps him and Leza.

Threatened with Leza’s death, Paul is forced to cooperate with the LRA as he learns of Quinn’s plans to exterminate the people of South Sudan for personal gain. As Leza is dying, Paul must race against time to escape and find a way to stop Quinn, or Leza and thousands of others will die. 

I am pleased, honored and excited to announce that one of the largest publishing houses in the world has signed me as an author. THE GHOST OF AFRICA is scheduled for release in April, 2016.

I have been aware of something peculiar to Americans for quite some time—rudeness. I realize that this trait is not specific to our country, but it has a flare here that you won’t find elsewhere. This is especially true in marriage.

Husbands and wives who struggle with tension in their marriages slowly allow the walls of common courtesy to deteriorate. They want to be heard. They desire to feel justified, so they speak out even when it isn’t their turn.

Society tells us to stand up for our rights and demand what we have earned.

Crying Baby

I wish I had known then what I know now . . .


If you’ve ever said those words you’re not alone. But what would be done differently if you had the chance to do it over again?

I have spoken many times about places I go that I can’t mention.

Coptic churches burned down in Egypt's Minya province

The photo above shows the remains of the church where I worshiped two years ago. Although the people there have never known true freedom, what they are dealing with now is more intense persecution than most of us will ever know. This building was filled with pews and people who loved God. Their infraction on society was that they worshiped someone other than who those in power believe is the true God.
