It’s hard to believe that DivineDetour.com has been online for six months—today.
Perhaps it’s a fitting time to admit how that first post took a huge step of faith. A belief that God would provide, not only my time but guests who were willing to give up theirs to be interviewed. Thank you, Lord! And thanks to everyone who has stopped by to visit. I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have.
I’m certainly not the only one who has been writing! Here are four new books released by previous DivineDetour guests since their interview earlier this year. Please check them out! (Click on book covers for additional information)
