Three years ago I took a step—actually, it felt more like the proverbial leap of faith—and launched DivineDetour. Can I just be honest and say it was hard to hit “publish” on that first post?

I’m grateful to the authors, entertainers, and other guests who have given their time for interviews. Thanks also to the publicists, publishers, record labels, and managers who have assisted in many ways through the years (and more than 350 posts). Special thanks also to my friend Janet Bozeman who has gone out of her way to help!

About two years ago, Linda Veath Cox came onboard to write devotions for DivineDetour. Even before that time, she supplied a LOT of encouragement to me. I’m thankful for the encouragement she now provides to DivineDetour readers every other Sunday.

Most of all, thanks to those of you who have dropped by during the past three years—your presence and comments have meant a lot! I’d love to hear about one of your personal “divine detours.” Or make a suggestion for the site. Just leave a pertinent comment below, and you’ll be included in the drawing for a signed copy of The Road to Mercy, a CCM Magazine t-shirt, and a $25 American Express gift card. See details below.

Blessings to all,
