Books by Becka - Books to nourish mind, soul, and spirit

Thanks for visiting my bookshop!  My goal is to provide thoughtful readers with books that integrate reason, faith, and imagination.

I do not yet have a brick-and-mortar storefront; my business is conducted primarily through this website and at retreats and conferences.  However, I am happy to make arrangements for my customers in the Houston area to pick up their purchases directly from me.
