God Allows U-Turns

When I made a U-Turn toward God as an adult in 1987 my life changed. With a desire to share the faith-filled hope and healing I was experiencing, I initially wrote God Allows U-Turns® as my life story—my testimony. However, the good Lord had other plans and God Allows U-Turns® became a global outreach dedicated to sharing true stories from people around the world who were making bold, new direction choices, with God at the center of their life.

I’ve been blessed to read literally thousands of true short stories, and to publish both first-time and well-known writers in God Allows U-Turns®. Thirteen anthologies in the acclaimed God Allows U-Turns® book series have been published since 2001, by Barbour Publishing, Promise Press, and Bethany House, and the recognized logo has appeared on tracts by Good News/Crossway, merchandise by J-Mar Universal Designs, and greeting cards by Masterpiece Studios.

Encouraging people to make U-Turns toward God, thus changing lives, families, our community, and our world, has always meant a great deal to me. It’s the basis of the Great Commission. Although I’ve branched out into other areas of writing over the past few years, the God Allows U-Turns® outreach has continued to hold a special place in my heart—and in the hearts of many readers and writers.

That’s why I’m excited to be able to infuse new life into the U-Turns outreach via this website and my blog. Setting healthy boundaries is a critical aspect in our personal life journey, and people around the world are making U-Turns and finding SANITY in formerly insane situations and circumstances. Over time, I’ll be rolling out new opportunities to share your true stories of God’s amazing grace, mercy, and love, opportunities to share your Setting Boundaries story. Make sure to sign-up for my newsletter and visit my blog for updates.

And if you’ve always dreamed of seeing your own book published, I’d love to work one-on-one with you. Check out the private coaching and editing opportunities available.

Remember, it’s never too late to make a U-Turn toward God, and it’s never too late to achieve the dreams of your heart. I’m passionate about helping my brothers and sisters to find their purpose in life. To live the life God has called you to live.
