Stories with a Message.  A little wit.  A little wisdom.  That’s it.  Not always funny, but more often than not (I was born with a smirk).

Posting Schedule

  • Topical Tuesdays – Whatever is on my mind or in my heart. (Or sometimes on Mondays, but “Topical Tuesdays” is more alliterative, and I really like alliteration.)
  • Wishing Wednesdays – A 5 minute read from my serialized fantasy novel The Wishing Map appears every Wednesday.
  • Other Days – Never can tell.
  • Pastors and Teachers – you’ll find sermon ideas, plus links to church dramas and videos, here.

About Me

I’m a storyteller (writer, filmmaker, public speaker) with the audacity to believe others might actually want to read or watch the things I come up with. I live in Cincinnati, Ohio with my wise and gorgeous wife Trudy. Together we’ve created our magnum opi: two clever, adorable daughters. I’m president of a production company called Moriah Media.

Additional bio snippets can be found in posts under the Categories headings of Memoir and Fool’s Odyssey (a serialized autobiographical poem).

Film project updates (“A Filmmaker’s Journal” entries) can be found here.

About the Content

I make no claim to being a source of wisdom, but am a frequent carrier, and an infector of others.  My passion, what gets me out of bed in the morning (besides my wife and hungry pets), is speaking truth into others’ lives.  Hence, you’ll find Bible quotes (I’m a Jesus follower), along with direct or indirect references to Pascal, Chesterton, Merton, C.S. Lewis, Evelyn Underhill, and many other scientists, mystics, and storytellers.

      Welcome to the blogosphere, both of you! I haven’t written a book-length testimony, but I do frequent Memoir posts (that’s one of my Categories), so there is a piecemeal testimony of sorts scattered throughout the blog site. We’re aware of the kayak race in August, but haven’t made it so far. Remind me when it gets close and maybe I can drop by. Blessings!

    Hi Mitch…so you live in Cincinnati? I do as well. In your film work…do you have any interest in making use of any original, spiritual music? I saw you have an interest in Merton and he was a major influence on me, my writing and spirituality. My songs are all on YouTube.
