About the Author

cover-photo-thumbnail Patrick Day, Author

I have been a church elder, prison minister, Sunday school teacher, mentor to new Christians, and long-time Gideon. As a cancer survivor, I have first-hand insight into the healing power of God and the enduring human spirit. My passion for writing grew from a Master’s Degree in English Literature at the University of Minnesota and encompassed my twin careers of education and advertising. I am the author of two previous novels: Too Late in the Afternoon and Murders and Genealogy in Hennepin County.

An interesting question to ask someone is, “What is the most important thing that has ever happened to you?” My answer is, “The time I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord.” That was 34 years ago. Everything before or since is secondary.

Even after becoming a believer, I was sometimes full of God and sometimes full of myself. There had to be a better way, and the Holy Spirit showed it to me with a series of metaphors and images, starting with a sermon in Fargo, North Dakota, in 1992. That’s what this website and my novel are all about – staying tuned to the Holy Spirit more of the time, and He will teach you how to serve God with all your heart. If that isn’t what you want, this may not be the website for you.

But degrees and writing experiences are not the most important credentials to write this website. My heartfelt desire is to be guided and influenced by the Holy Spirit a little more each day and to serve God a little bit better each day.
