Published in September, 2019, Craft, Cost & Call: How to Build a Life as a Christian Writer is co-authored with my friend and colleague, Karen Stiller. It offers hands-on help to people of faith who want to write well and be published, or even just improve, and represents our effort to inspire a new generation of writers to craft writing lives of excellence.
I co-wrote Circle of Opportunity: Stories of Lives Changed through Opportunity International Canada, with author David Stiller. Published by Opportunity International Canada in Spring 2019, it chronicles the creation of the organization through which countless Canadians have come to partner in the work of poverty alleviation around the globe using the tool of microfinance.
I co-authored The Game Changers: True Stories About Saving Mothers & Babies In East Africa with Canadian obstetrician and founder of Save the Mothers, Dr. Jean Chamberlain Froese. Published by Save the Mothers in 2016, the book is a passionate wake-up call to recognize and rectify the daily tragedy and global injustice of maternal mortality. The book features real life stories, reveals why mothers and their babies are dying, and how Save the Mothers is equipping and motivating local leaders who, in turn, are changing the social fabric in East Africa. The Game Changers was honoured at The Word Awards 2017, where it picked up the Debra Fieguth Award (for social justice writing) and the award for best book in the Christian non-fiction “Culture” category.
Shifting Stats Shaking the Church: 40 Canadian Churches Respond is another book co-authored with Karen Stiller.
Published by World Vision Canada in 2015, the book was a first place winner in The 2016 Word Awards, in the Christian non-fiction “Culture” category. It looks at the changing demographics and realities of Canadian culture, and examines how churches from across the denominational spectrum (in every province and territory) are responding creatively to the needs of their communities.
