The Living Spring (Author Interview)

The Living Spring looks like a great book.  Can you tell us a little about it?

 I have been around water springs my whole life.  We had one up in Minnesota where we got our drinking water in the summer.  My brother-in-law and I canoed down the Current River in Missouri and saw a spring.  I related to seeing the springs and writing of my quotes.  The book is full of inspiration and ways to encounter God’s love.


How long did it take you to write The Living Spring?

I have been writing original quotes my whole life that added to the book.  It was after my brother-in- law passed away that I started to write the book and came up with the idea.  It took a few years.

What inspired you when writing The Living Spring?   

How do we describe encountering God’s Love? I found inspirations in the Bible from Jeremiah and Revelations that supported the idea of a “Living Spring.”.  As far as I know, it is one of the few books to describe the Holy Spirit as a “Living Spring”.   I was also inspired by the many people I met while driving downtown and the children that I taught while working in schools.

What will readers get out of your book?

There are some quotes and short stories that are very inspiring.  It makes for an interesting read.  They will learn more about God’s love and the ‘Living Spring”.


When did you decide to become a writer?

I was writing lyrics for songs first before I became a writer.  I had a great aunt that always inspired me to put down what I was encountering and feeling on paper.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing The Living Spring?

You have to develop the common thread while writing the book.  I looked for inspirations of the “Living Spring” in each chapter.  I had many original quotes to put together.


Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am an author of two books and four music albums.  I am also a certified teacher and have a CDL driving license.  Also, I have a nice family that encourages me.
