Welcome to Heart Callings.

You can find past episodes here.

Listening for grace in the every day and meeting a dog named Bear.

My dog, Bear, joined us for our Leap Day Launch Party celebrating the publication of my latest book, Monday Morning Manna. 

In this video from that day I share some of the stories from the book, reflect upon the spiritual discipline of paying attention to grace in the everyday, and, of course, introduce you to Bear. Enjoy!


"Your devotions never fail to touch that place inside where God dwells..."

This beloved devotional book has been translated into Norwegian and Japanese by readers who wanted to share it.

Ruth Sprague of Birmingham, UK, wrote:

I just wanted to write and thank you for “Strugglers, Stragglers and Seekers”.  I am all of those things but on days when God feels far or I am too exhausted to pursue faith your devotions never fail to touch that place inside where God dwells. They comfort, encourage and challenge but never condemn, never make me feel more guilt or shame.
