Welcome to Inspiration Point!

In 2010, I created this blog for the purpose of sharing stories of overcoming adversities.  Over time, the blog grew to include  articles written on a variety of topics.  If you had ask, “Why don’t you write a book?”  I’d have given a skeptical  response; as I did not know what to write.

It’s now June 2016 and I finally did write “A Lesser Human: An Anthology of Overcoming”.  What’s the book about?  Do you recall my various stories?  Yes, I wrote a book and it is based on some of those very articles found on this blog site. You never know!

Here’s a blurb about my book, that could easily fit my blog site, Inspiration Point:

Do you struggle with low self-esteem? How about rejection or depression?  I know the feeling; as I’ve strugled with these things in the past.  If you read my book, then you’ll likely discover that I’ve my shares of bullies and abuses.

My goal is to share stories of how God has healed my heart and help me in overcoming the effects of these things. It’s my desire that my stories will be of help to you.  It could be from my book, “A Lesser Human: An Anthology of Overcoming” or one of the various articles on this site.

Am I going to write another one? Yes, I would like to.

About Me

In ’64, I was born with both poor vision and with severe hearing loss.  According to doctors, I was diagnosed with Congenital Rubella Syndrome.  While there were challenges in my life, my physical limitations never stopped me, from having a life.

After graduating from Manchester High School in ’83, I went on to Stockton State College in Pomona, NJ.  I ended up graduating with a Political Science degree.  It is why I would sometime have fun visiting Alan Colme’s Liberaland.  It was in college that I came to call Jesus, my Lord and Savior.

After college, I sought computer related jobs in Phoenix, AZ.  Though I didn’t have too much success, I soon turn to writing.  I’ve had a few stories published at OS/2 Ezine.  The magazine is essentially dead and yet it is still online.  You’re welcome to do a search for my name.

I didn’t just do some computer related writings.  I’ve also sought to write stories that I thought would be of interest.  While I didn’t get them professionally published, I did seek to place them, on my site.

I am currently attending Shore Vineyard Church and am seeking avenues for the  writing skills that God has blessed me with.

  2. Wow! Great site Bar! I am impressed. Seeing you love to write, I need to talk to you about praying about helping me to write this play called, “Elijah”. It could be GOD is showing me this site to show me where your strenghts lie and where we can fellowship. Hope to see you at men’s fellowship tonight.
