“I loved your voice in all three of your novels. Your strong faith, your love of family and friends ,  running and second chances come through on every page.  I gave The Good One to my eighteen year-old granddaughters as required reading before they go off to college.  I love  your stories!!!”  -Val

“What an honor and blessing it was to read the story [The Long Way Around] and remember how faithful God was to their family.  I felt encouraged and strengthened in my faith just by reading the book.  I can only imagine it has done and will do the same for many others. It made me laugh, it made me cry and it made me appreciate those around me.  The book also reminded me to continue to pray for the Johnson Family as they are in Papua New Guinea and away from family and friends. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say, the book was wonderful.  Thank you for putting their story to words in such an honoring way.”  -Noelle

“We just got home from vacation where I gave my four college friends a copy of the book [The Long Way Around]. Stan and I thought it was very well written. Thanks for sharing your talent in this way.” -Stan and Bonnie
