Our goal is not to sell books and audios. Instead, our intent is to tell good stories about a time and place that is dear to our hearts. Our hope is that, like the character Cowboy, you will want to know more about the answers found in Scripture.

“What you done or what you ain’t, that’s between you and God Almighty. I got chore enough minding after my own fretful soul.”
Author, T.W. Lawrence
“Just a passing glimpse of the cover on this collection should be enough to warm the heart. These stories are about much more than a man and his horse and T.W. Lawrence has created an ongoing journey that entices the reader to saddle up and ride along. Each encounter is formed with detailed imagery through exceptional writing. Cowboy becomes the reader’s friend much like Dusty is his and, through his encounters on the trail, we often receive an open invitation for self examination. Lawrence gives us a chance to feel — laughter, sadness, tolerance, hope, humility — and to believe that, with faith, we can all know a better way. Well done and the audio version, narrated by Moby, is worth listening to over and over.”
“I am not generally a western fan by any means, but a recent guest left this at my house. I picked it up to glance through it and ended up reading three stories before my first cup of coffee. The story follows a cowboy and his horse as they have encounters with others along the trail. Each one leaves an impression and has a thought-provoking ending.
It’s good story-telling with some insights that actually made me reflect on my own life a little bit. The story, BISCUITS, in particular. That was my favorite.
I actually went online to see what else this guy wrote.”
