The Little Things

Because of some issues with Amazon and a third party; My book, An Arkie's Faith, will no longer be available. To satisfy Amazon, I have taken most of the stories in An Arkie's Faith and added new material to produce a new book. The title is The Little Things.

I use personal experiences, local events, and national news as a way to bring out spiritual truths in the devotionals included in this book. Many of these devotionals were first published in the hometown newspaper of Mena, Arkansas, The Mena Star. In December 2015, the editor of The Mena Star called me and outlined a plan that she had for the newspaper in the new year. She was planning on a weekly column for the religion page written by a local writer instead of using a syndicated column. She asked him if he would be willing to commit to writing a weekly column. I agreed, and the new column, An Arkie’s Faith, premiered on January 7, 2016.

The Little Things uses plain and simple stories in an easily readable style to illustrate important life lessons. The 105-page book includes 32 stories. Here is an excerpt from the title story.

"There are many simple things we can do that seem little but can accomplish so much. One of the easiest is to put a smile on your face. When you wear a smile, you become approachable, and that can sometimes make all the difference in the world to another person. A kind word is a small thing, but you never know how it will affect someone."

I appreciate all of you who purchased An Arkie's Faith either in paperback or on kindle. I have priced both the paperback and the kindle version of The Little Things as low as Amazon allows; $3.58 for the paperback and $0.99 for the kindle version. If you purchase the paperback, you can download the kindle version for free with the Amazon MatchBook program.
