Speaking at ACFW DFW on Twas the Night Before Christmas

At the 2019 Christmas Party, at ACFW DFW,  I spoke on the history and poetic structure of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. 

Not one time when we pulled this story/poem out to read, did my parents tell me it was written in anapestic tertrameter. 

Thinking about Point of View, I'm taken with how the poem's format keeps you completely in the story. Not only that, but end though the can anticipate where each line is going, the rhyme doesn't allow you to skip the line, but demands hearing the rhyme.

Everything, Mary DeMuth's new book, my submission for her trailer


 Mary DeMuth invited her followers to be a part of the trailer for her new book, Everything.  This is my submission. It is hard for me to identified the exact moment Jesus became everything to me, because every time I think I know everything Jesus is, He whispers but there is more. This moment was my first realization after my conversion. What about you? When did you know Jesus was everything?
