I started writing magazine articles on a wide range of topics in 1985–essays as well as how-to articles, meditations as well as opinion pieces. Some have been published in Christian magazines while others have appeared in general-audience magazines and still others in newspapers. Here are a few.
I own the reprint rights to any that appear here so feel free to contact me to reprint them.
