About the Book

This book discusses how the Porch Community helped me locate my writing voice. The Porch Community is located in the City of Nashville-Davidson County, comprising a cross-section of writers. These writers share a mutual interest in becoming more effective writers. The Porch was cofounded by two accomplished writers, Susannah Felts and Katie McDougall. I composed a sermon as a tribute to how they impacted me through my association as a member of the Porch. This book is to let the larger community know that as member of the Porch, my interest involves writing nonfiction like personal essays, poetry, and sermons. This is different. It expresses my Christian faith, relationship with family and friends, and interest in falling in love with an intelligent and attractive woman.
