So, this series veers far away from the usual stuff I post on my blog (books, books and more books - plus the occasional flash fiction), but then again, it is something close to my heart.

I know all the arguments about how we’ve confined the word “worship” into the 30-minute segment at the beginning of church service where we sing songs and how worship should actually encompass the whole of our lives and the way we live it for God, but for the purpose of this series (and to make my life simpler) when I say “worship” I will generally refer to singing songs (unless I state otherwise).
I'm not saying that I know everything about worship leading. I'm not even saying I know very much at all. I'm just writing out things that I believe are important - at least to me in my walk with God. I first started leading worship in youth group back in the late '90s when we called ourselves lead worshippers. I don't call myself anything anymore, except that busybody who likes compiling top 25 lists (okay, now I feel like an old fart).
At any rate, I'm hoping that you will glean something from my 15+ years of experience. Or not.
I'll be compiling it into an ebook at the end of the month and will be sending out a copy to all those on my mailing list. So sign up if you want to get a free copy! (You'll also get a copy of When Winds Blow Cold, my fairy tale short story when you sign up.)

About the book:
Jane Hays has been told all her life that it’s dangerous to be out in the forest past sundown. At fifteen, she’s quite sure that it’s all old wives’ tales... yet, why does her village bar the gates every night? Why do they even have gates? When she is caught in an unexpected rainstorm on her way home, Jane ignores all the warnings and seeks shelter in a cottage in the middle of the forest. Soon, she is caught up in a world of magic and beauty – and in the storm of the Fairy Queen’s wrath.
The Fairy Queen is out for blood. There have been intruders – human intruders – in her domain and she will stop at nothing to find them and kill them. After all, it is only fair. She is only seeking retribution for the death that humans leave in their wake.
But Jane isn’t all that she seems to be. And the events of the night aren’t as innocent as they appear.
A tale of magic, fairy creatures and family, Coexist is a novella for the young and the young-at-heart.
