What is a parable? It is a short story that teaches a moral or short lesson.
Seeds of faith were planted in me at a very young age in a non-traditional way through the words of a stellar individual and other beautiful people who nurtured and cared for me. The reader meets the cultivators of my spiritual beliefs in my award-winning memoir Gift of A Lifetime: Finding Fulfilling Things in the Unexpected.
I know about the Parable of the Mustard seed all because of a small bauble which hung from my grandmothers wrist watch during her entire lifetime. I didn’t know it’s valuable significance until I became an adult and began to make some self-realizations. The parable of the mustard seed is an easily understood story. Here is what it is all about.
My debut as a writer began with a seed of an idea about my fragile, small beginnings. Thanks be to God, I was well nurtured as a child, and my life as a writer has grown into something much bigger. My faith has been realized in unique ways through my writing. Faith has been a part of each of my stories. I try to fill them with things which feed my spirit faithfully and creatively.
