Last weekend, my new novel, War of Whispers was launched in Rancho Bernardo, California. It was a great time of old and new friends gathering to celebrate the birth of this novel, several years in the making. It is Book One in the War of Whispers Trilogy and you can read the first chapter here on this site. The story deals with several issues but primarily I wanted the reader to become more aware of what he or she is thinking. Because like it or not, there is a war going on for our minds. I illustrate this truth through the guardian angels, Arman and Zuriel, as well as their dark-side counterparts. In the spirit realm, they struggle back and forth to win Kat’s thinking. Because whoever gains her agreement, gains her heart.

People have told me that the story has made them more aware of their thoughts–how some are ours and some are not. We have opportunities every day, all day to take our thoughts captive as 2 Corinthians 10:5 instructs us. Just yesterday someone said something to me in an email that could be considered offensive. I made a conscious choice (plus it did occur to me that I better practice what I preach) to take my thoughts captive and shelve them until I could respond. That’s what I did. I went about my afternoon and didn’t think about it again until later. After another email exchange, the problem was cleared up, and I was once again reminded that by obeying scripture, I am so much better off. I saved myself a whole lot of frustration and angry, hurt thoughts.

Who knows? Maybe I wrote this book to remind myself of what I need to do all the time: to “ten five” my thoughts.
