'Little Leaven' is book of five short stories concerning matters of faith. The stories take the reader from the grade-school soccer field, the Oval Office, the nursing home, and a few places in between. These are topics readers may know and appreciate but seldom see in print. On display are the humorous, the mundane, and the more serious matters so often confronting all believers.
In 'Letters from Soccer' Pastor Randy just wants to read his book and watch his daughter's game, but Annette, the woman who doesn't mind telling him she doesn't go to church, has yet another point to make. Then there's, 'Five Pound Bible'. The President of the United States, Mrs. Bonica Newinski has her own point to make about Easter and just wishes people would be honest. 'Stuttgardt Notes' shows a young preacher putting himself in a precarious position and losing his first pastorate because of it. 'Bellwood' is based on the end of a life the author once knew. It chronicles the frustration and unfairness that comes with seeing a man spend his final days in a low-end nursing home. And finally, in '40-Minutes to Work' a man without purpose struggles to escape depression, alcoholism, and the lure to be done with it all. This is also the story of an answered prayer.
