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.

How’s Your Prayer Life?

I don’t consider myself an authority—and most times, truth battering arrogance, a scribe. Yes, if anything makes sense and the verb fits, praise Miss Agnes Carter, my 8th grade teacher for scribing. One of the challenges, make that personal if … Continue reading

Coping In A Shredding World–Not Fast, But Deep

From the current Stanford Magazine: Jo Boaler, mathematician, is a leading voice for a wholly different pedagogy where speed is out, depth is in, and the journey to an answer can be as important as the destination. P.54 That perspective … Continue reading

Life’s Challenge: Bring a Twinkle, Not A Scowl

R. Scott Peck started two books with verities that don’t lack evidence, “Life is Difficult; Life is Complicated.” I think of that this morning. Okay, it’s easy to go off on the national USA leadership, particularly for the alleged comment … Continue reading
