A Little Shift in Direction


I will be expanding my website and here is an explanation of what that entails.

The website Palace of Twelve Pillars is still about books, but my reach is extending. Where in the past I have focused on YA and MG books with a few adult books sprinkled in I am now going to add the faith factor.

I am currently working on a series of devotions based on my book Women of the Bible: A Study. I am hoping that an phone app Refocus will pick it up, but even if they don’t I will be bringing the videos and devotions to this a page of my website that has been almost silent while I focused on my other books.

I am really excited and a little scared about this project and can’t wait for you all to see it.


I also am going to start sharing more books about faith in addition to the books I already share. But have no fear I will still share YA and MG with a sprinkling of adult over at Dragon’s Muse. You can be sure Myrria and Sir E. Robert Smythe will not let me give up on that.

Good Friday Meditation

Standing by the cross of Jesus were His mother, His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw His mother and the disciple He loved standing there, He said to His mother, “Woman, here is your son.” He said to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home. (John 19: 25-27)2011-04-07 06.11.06

At Jesus crucifixion, Mary’s noble bearing of her loneliness and heartache can give us comfort in our times of anguish and pain.  She silently endured what she knew she could not change and realized she needed to be strong to help the remaining apostles in their continuing mission.


Mary stayed with Jesus when most of the others had abandoned Him. For her faith and love, Jesus rewarded her by entrusting her care to his beloved disciple, John.  Her acceptance of God’s will at the foot of the cross in the greatest lesson Mary will give us.


Questions to Ponder:

  1. Would I so willingly accept God’s will in the face of such anguish and pain?
  2. Would I be willing to learn God’s lesson and share it with the world?
  3. Would I turn to God or away from God in my greatest need?”
