I speak at churches, para-church organizations such as Focus on the Family, Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Conferences, International Network of Children’s Ministry, Moody Pastors Conference, at men’s retreats, women’s groups, couples retreats, Youth Worker conventions, homeschool conventions, and conduct Family Devotion Workshops all across the country.
I’m the author of eight books, including Smashed Tomatoes, Bottle Rockets and Other Outdoor Devotionals You Can Do With Your Kids, Dangerous Devotions for Guys, Reboot Your Brain Byte Sized Devotions for Boys, and Code of Silence (releasing spring 2012).
I love speaking, and love writing just as much. Most of my books fall into two broad categories.
Writing for PARENTS and YOUTH WORKERS
Books with tons of object lesson ideas to help teach kids spiritual truth in a way where they’ll listen . . . even teens!
FICTION for BOYS
Contemporary adventure and suspense for 8-12-year-old boys that will hold their attention. Not patronizing, skinny books for boys, but stories they can truly enjoy and learn from. Perfect for reluctant readers, and ideal for parents or teachers to read to their kids. Designed for boys . . . but they work great with girls, too!
Suspense fiction for 8-13-year-old middle school readers.
In Code of Silence, thirteen-year-old Cooper MacKinnon and his two friends witness a violent burglary. Fearing their lives will be at risk if they talk, they form a pact, a code of silence to keep everything they’ve seen quiet. They find that living a lie doesn’t come without a price tag.
