I have been an amateur photographer most of my life; the beauty in the world captures me. I had always been told my photographs were wonderful, and I knew I had a talent. Several years ago, my photographs began to change.
Suddenly, they no longer represented my skill they began to reflect the creator behind the beauty. How Blessed we are that God only need an open heart! He reached out and touch me. He drew me into a remarkable journey to touch others for Him.
I have spent the past several years on this very important and unique project. How could I have known that a walk around the block with my camera would find its way to so many people around the world–that snapshots from my lens would speak to hearts for God? How could I know how this path would change me?
I am a proud native of Williamstown, West Virginia, a beautiful small town along the banks of the Ohio River. I enjoy the simple things in life and making a positive difference to those along my path. God is pouring out his spirit in the year 2015. Are we paying attention? I am very blessed to be able to share 85 incredible color pictures that God is showing us through my photography.
The Lord has taken my passion for photographing the “simple” things in life, and is showing us all his message through my lens! God said “get this book published, I will do the rest.”
Each picture is dated as they were taken. These dates, are very important to certain people who will view the book. The e-book version is presented in the same quality as the original pics. I intentionally kept the e-book costs as low as possible, so it would be affordable to download onto tablets, iPads, iPhones, lab tops and other electronic devices. The e-book is an inspirational 96-page color picture book that the reader can take with them wherever they travel. What better way to show others God’s message!
This incredible book comforts those who are grieving over a lost friend or family member, sometimes
even a pet. A great gift, for any occasion. “Windows From Heave”n is changing peoples lives. Please share this book with others seeking God’s Kingdom. The soft cover version is a coffee table type book, that is perfect for doctor offices, hospitals, cancer centers, hospice, book stores, libraries and churches.
God is truly revealing his truths in these pictures.
Acts 2:17. Most will be stunned by what God is showing us. Enjoy and share! God is Alive and the Heavens are watching!
Yes It Is All True! It is TIME. God is pouring out His spirit using my talent as a photographer to reach those who seek his Kingdom. God doesn’t Photoshop!
