Welcome to my short story blog.

What sort of stories do you like to read? True stories? Stories about people, their struggles and achievements, their pain and joy? Stories about life and things that are important to you? Stories that make you laugh or cry?

Apparently, these are the kind of stories most of us read, like and share online. We are interested in life’s lessons, self-improvement, kids and parenting (and grand-parenting), meaningful relationships, food, things weird and wonderful, God and the meaning of life, ageing and mortality. My short story blog covers these topics and more!

My stories are based on my life, people I’ve met, places I’ve been, spiced with a good measure of fun, food and fellowship. Many of the stories reveal God’s providence and grace in my life and the lives of special others and the triumph of faith, hope and love over adversity and suffering. Some, like my food stories, include recipes and other practical ideas and suggestions and are quite light-hearted.

If you enjoy my stories and recipes, you are welcome to share them. As well, you can sign up to receive an email whenever I post a new story so you won’t miss a single post.
