First and Last

This is fun for me. At about the same time I finish the last part of "An Amish Home", I get to re-visit the first chapter of my first story, "An Amish Journey".

"Rest on Grace" is the conclusion of "An Amish Home". Over the course of writing this, the story seemed to find its own direction. Everything kept coming back to the little girl, Ruth. We each have our own story of faith. This story was no different in that respect. The father, Allan, had his faith tested repeatedly and each time it became more difficult. I wish I had half the conviction that my main character does.

In Volume 8 –Rest on Grace, a life hangs in the balance. After the events of Volume Seven: The Fall, Allan Howarth faces the greatest test of his faith since coming to Karsten Field. In the end, it will all rest on grace and this Amish home will never be the same.

If you use Kindle, please have a look -

It is also on Nook and Kobo.

While you are over on Amazon, please look at Volume 1 of "An Amish Journey". My publisher recently made it available on audiobook. Hearing it read gives the story a whole new life. I found a kind of energy that I don't get from re-reading what I have already written.

The audiobook can be found here -

The Fall, but it's not Spring yet

Sometimes, we are faced with the inexplicable. Sometimes, things do not go as we planned.

That does not mean that there is not something better waiting on the other side.

In "An Amish Home Volume 7 – The Fall", one of those things happens.

Young Ruth and her brother venture off into the woods for some innocent and much needed play time. What happens next is almost a tragedy and Ruth receives an ominous message from the mysterious figure that some have called her guardian angel.

If you would like to read "The Fall", it is available on Kindle, Nook or Kobo

Amazon –

Barnes & Noble – available soon

Kobo –

Come for a visit to Karsten Field with these Biblically inspired stories of home and family.

Best-selling author George Michael Loughmueller goes back to Karsten Field for a new serialized novel. Almost eight years after his journey began, Allan and Mary now have two children, Benjamin and Ruth, in their Amish Home.

In Volume 7 –The Fall, Ruth and her brother Benjamin explore the woods near their home. The short trip becomes a journey of discovery. Will it reveal Ruth’s connection to her mysterious guardian angel, Isaac, or will the journey end in tragedy?

For Allan, it may give him a new understanding of his daughter. But he also has his hands full with his good friend Ben Abrim. The octogenarian has a special announcement that surprises Allan and everyone in Karsten Field.

Does It Burn?

1 Corinthians 10:1-13

Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;

And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat;

And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness.

Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted.

Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

An Amish Home - Volume 6 - Touched by Fire

I felt like this was a good time to go back and visit Allan's oldest son Brett. If you recall, Brett did not remain with Allan in Karsten Field. He had his own path to follow. In following that path, Brett found success in the physical world, but that left him wanting in his spiritual life. I think it is all too common that we tip one way or the other. I wanted to give Brett a chance to find a balance both with God and man. I tried to touch on a hot topic and hope that I have shared some of my own values with this one.
