The Listen To HIS Heartbeat Trilogy (I am writing #3 now) make great gifts. Do you need a present for a birthday, graduation, anniversary, wedding, Christmas or to take to a friend in the hospital or nursing home? Give them a copy of these books. The humor with make them smile and the scripture and message will bless and teach them. You will find stories about: animals, home repairs, sports, family, teaching, driver's education, children, cars, neighbors, Bible stories, healing, salvation, and God speaking to His children. These devotion books will be enjoyed by both men and women.
How are these devotion books different from all the rest?
Many devotionals are too serious and don't show that God has a good sense of humor and wants our fellowship. Or they are funny but don't include very much of what the Bible says, and so they aren't much of a teaching tool. My Listen To HIS Heartbeat Devotion Books, have a lot of scripture and teaches what the Bible says with a nice mix of humor.
Many times in my life as a teacher, athlete, coach, friend or with family, I saw the benefits of humor to lighten a mood or bring happiness to someone going through a difficult situation. The Lord has brought so much joy to me through His "one-liners" and sharing with me the answers and encouragement I need.
Listen To HIS Heartbeat Devotion Books are dedicated to teaching the message that God created people to fellowship with Him moment by moment and He loves us! The Plan of Salvation and How to get saved is in all of my devotion books.

Don’t Forget To Ask God! (poem)
Chicken Soup for the Soul selected my story "Talking Potato" in their "Living with Alzheimer's & Other Dementias" book in 2014. This book sold out in 3 weeks and they had to go to a second printing right away! It's an excellent book to encourage Caregivers and the family members of people struggling with any form of Dementia. These are all true stories which include many great ideas which will help both the caregiver and the person with the dementia. One of the 11 sections in the book is called, "What Does It Feel Like?" and has stories written by people with dementia. The other sections in this 349 page book are: "Accepting a New Reality", "Strategies and Tips for Coping", "Next Steps and Tough Choices", "Taking the Journey with Your Parent", "Younger-Onset Alzheimer's", "In Sickness and In Health", "The Lighter Side", "New Ways to Make Connections", "It Takes a Village" and "The Special Bond with Grandchildren".
In 2016 Chicken Soup for the Soul honored my story, "Talking Potato" by selecting it for this book, "for Mom, with love". Since Chicken Soup for the Soul says these are "Our Favorite Stories For Moms From Our Bestselling Books", you know these are going to be good!
I have stories in 3 anthology books by Hidden Brook Press. They include many authors, stories, poems and good recipes.
"Grandfather, Father and Me...Memories, Poetry and Good Food" published in 2013 with my story, "The Last Surviving Guinea Pig" about my father, Robert John Etter, who was born the same year insulin was discovered, 1921. When he was two-and-a-half-years old, my grandmother took him to the University of Michigan Hospital where he and four other little boys were tested with insulin for diabetes. These five brave young boys, guinea pigs, were put on tables and experimented on by injection.
This anathology about fathers has 57 authors, 239 pages, 60 stories, 37 poems, and 15 wonderful recipies!
"Grandmother, Mother and Me...Memories, Poetry, and Good Food" published in 2012 with my story, "Handyman Grandma". It is about my Grandmother Baker and what life was like growing up in the 1950's. My, how things have changed!
This anathology about mothers has 95 authors, 250 pages, 79 stories, 20 poems, and 28 wonderful recipies!
"Celebrating Christmas with...Memories, Poetry, and Good Food" published in 2011 with my story, "Lost Tradition". It is about my mother who baked "tons" of cookies at Christmas. Mom had stacks of cookbooks from which she selected the recipes which she used. One Christmas she sat for 20 days and hand copied 197 pages of her favorites on notebook paper and indexed them in a notebook and gave a copy of "her cookbook" to my sister and me. It wasn't until we read the cake section that we found her true gift to us. Read "Lost Tradition" and find out what she left her daughters.
I also included her cookie recipe, "Santa's Whiskers". (The whiskers are made with coconut!)
This anathology about Christmas has 100+ authors, 300+ pages, 9 catagories of stories, and 50+ recipes.
