My Companion Books

Available as a paperback and e-book…

A COMPANION FOR THE JOURNEY is a self-published devotional that I hope will be—as the title states—a companion for individual or group reflection. Though designed to match Lent’s 40 days, I also wanted Companion to be appropriate for daily readings along the journey of faith. Does it work for Lent? You betcha. But it’s also for other times, from groups seeking a common resource or an individual desiring inspiration for personal reflection.

Companion has 41 reflections mostly on the Lord’s Prayer. Since you’re a responsible adult, you can read it anyway you wish . . . however, it’s designed so that each brief “chapter” can be read on a daily basis in a matter of minutes. As your companion, I hope my words will invite your questions, disagreements and insights about the relationship between Creator and creation.

It’s available HERE on Amazon as a paperback ($8.99) or Kindle ($3.99).

In 2014, I published a second collection of essays. Enthralled with the first book’s title, I didn’t want to make too many changes (and having a “brand” is important according to experts) and so called it ANOTHER COMPANION FOR THE JOURNEY. Though it doesn’t have the focus of something like the Lord’s Prayer, this second book can also be used for individual or group reflection and–clever me–it’s a swell resource for Lent.

Available in paperback and for your Kindle.

One last comment . . .

I get paid big bucks for part-time ministry at Hinds Hospice in Fresno. One of their programs is Angel Babies, where families grieving the death of an infant or caring for a child with a life-limiting illness are supported. I want to support their work, so at least 50% (sometimes more) of Companion’s sales are donated to Angel Babies. (Or ignore buying my book, click on the Hinds link and donate money on your own . . . who needs me as a middle-dude?)

  1. Hi Larry, just wanted to let you know that I bought this yesterday (on Kindle – save a bit of tree) and am already halfway through, and it has brought me to tears more than once. Thank you for your beautiful sharing. Much appreciated. It’s very thoughtful and I look forward to reading it again more carefully once I’ve finished going through it the first time!
