“To Miss Katherine Chapman, who inspired me to write.”

Stephen at the CVCA book publishing party (September 2008) with Katherine Chapman (6th grade teacher to whom NOVEMBER REIGN is dedicated) and Denise Dolence (Publishing Agent). 


  1. Stephen’s race and journey of Life had only begun. Yet, he ran with such drive, determination, and purpose. With each new hurdle of suffering and trial, he encountered, he boldly “lived out loud” to testify of God’s unfailing Love and Grace. For his soul waited upon God and in Him, Stephen found refuge….for no human touch could soothe the wounds that bore so deep. And as he raced towards the finish, amongst a cloud of witnesses, a voice was heard above the crowd, none other than his hero, and beloved father…cheering him on as he made a triumphant entrance through the gates! The Kingdom of Heaven beckons to us all…..may we have the courage to face each new day as Stephen did with new found Hope, Trust and Faith in Christ alone! As for Joy, my family, and myself…your Stephen’s life will forever have impacted our lives! I will never read the passages of Mephibosheth the same ever again! 2 Samuel 9:1-13…….May Stephen’s memory be eternal……To my dear friend Olga, Greg, Katie, Sarah, & family…gleaning from Psalm 62 into Psalm 63….”O’ God, Thou art my God, early will i seek Thee, my soul thirsteth for Thee, my flesh longeth for Thee in a dry and weary land, where no water is: To see Thy Power & Thy Glory, so as i have seen Thee in the sanctuary. Because Thy Lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise Thee. Thus will i bless Thee while i live: i will lift up my hands in Thy Name…..
    With love in Christ, Christie
