About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.

Keep Casting…Rain Or Shine

God Of The Second Chance

Want to learn something about someone else…something that perhaps only their closest friend or relative knows…or maybe no one does? Maybe you’ve heard of it…ask people to write down three things about their life that “no one knows.” Except. Make … Continue reading

The Caterpillar Changes

Life comes at us…the rush of a wind that has a loud voice. Sometimes it clears the air; sometimes it throws clutter in our way…and more sharply at times, into our face. I remember Bill Coffin saying, “A caterpillar looks … Continue reading

Addressing Gun Violence

Not because I admire and respect him, which I do. Not that his father was killed as American Ambassador, which happened. Not because he’s a good guy. Which he is. But. [Let’s remember the deeper truth follows the conjunctive “but.”] … Continue reading

Broken Hearts

It’s about heart. And in this instance, from my perspective, it’s about a soulless heart. Monday morning, follows Sunday. However, this Monday morning is draped in black, torn black cloth, torn by bullet-holes. Devastating, tragic, unspeakably horrific. How could someone … Continue reading
