About Arrow

Hi and welcome! My pen name is Arrow. The word “arrow” intrigues me because it has two meanings that describe my passions. One, it is an instrument used intentionally to reach a target, and two, it shows the way. As a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, my goals are to live for Him, lead others to Him, and glorify the Heavenly Father. I pray that the stories, poems, song lyrics, and devotional thoughts I share on this website will always be inspired by the Holy Spirit and aligned with the truths found in God’s Word. My hope is that the words may penetrate your heart and point the way to a closer relationship with the Savior. I look forward to sharing my journey with you. Experiencing what God has in store is bound to be exciting! May you be blessed! ~ Arrow

What IS That Sound?

As I stepped outside early for my walk/jog, I was serenaded by mourning doves. Ah, so peaceful! But, before I rounded the first corner, I heard the neighborhood woodpeckers. Mind you, this sound in no way resembles the woodpeckers I’ve … Continue reading

‘Noble’ Times Three

Need an easy-to-learn memory verse? One that rolls right off the tongue? Try Isaiah 32:8. For me, the rhyme, rhythm, and repetition slip easily into a tune or chant. Try it a few times: “But the noble man makes noble … Continue reading
