Our good friend Ray Ellis kindly agreed to read his short story titled "I" for us on this podcast. Stay alert - the setting in "I" switches from the protagonist's current location to his past memories, again and again. Thank you, Ray!

You can find Ray's novels on Amazon as well as at his publishing company's website: nccpublishing.com.

We also read a poem by a Texas friend, Larry Long, called "Windy Grace" plus a true story that happened to a Wyoming friend titled "Tattered Angel."

Thanks for listening!

Again, we're privileged to read writings by local author friends. The podcast begins with the first chapter of Hilarey Johnson's brand-new young-adult novel titled "Heart of Petra." Next is "Free on the Inside" from a book I wrote several years ago about Freedom Fellowship, a prison ministry, followed by a couple devotionals from Lisa Buffaloe's "Living Joyfully Free" collection. The podcast concludes with two vignettes written and read by Steve.

Let Me Tell You a Story Podcast #3 with Steve and Becky Lyles

The subject for our third Let Me Tell You a Story podcast is springtime. It's official -- trees are budding and flowers are blooming. And our friends with pollen issues are miserable. Maybe these stories will help you forget the sneezes and itchy eyes.

The first story comes from a nonfiction book Becky authored with Larry Baker titled It's a God Thing! Larry had a life-changing experience early one morning on a golf course. You'll enjoy hearing how he handled adversity. Other readings include a poem by Steve, a short story by Becky and a chapter from her first novel, Winds of Wyoming.
