Our souls crave to be seen by others and yet often we ignore ourselves. We will do almost anything to be seen, and we hurt so much when others don't acknowledge us or see us. We know instinctively that we can hurt each other deeply by excluding you or letting you know that we don’t value you. This method of exclusion or disapproval can be a powerful way to control another human being into submission. If you can convince another human being that they are not worthy or worthless, then you will own that person. This one act can if you are the recipient of such treatment destroy you and your world if you allow it and believe it. It doesn't have to be this way for you. I want you to value and to see yourself in that mirror. And I want you to see and value not only yourself, but I want you to acknowledge and see others as valuable as well.

A Novel


Thou Son's Keeper takes place in the late 1800’s during a time when violence and brutality were considered at their worse. Donovan is a farmer married to Sidney, the woman of his dreams. They have one child together, a son, Sage. For a time their life is full of joy and bliss as Donavon enjoys and supports his family from the spoils of his land. Eventually, his life turns upside down when he and his family are brutalized by 5 outlaws. 

The story begins 7 years later when Donovan tracks the last of the 5 outlaws to a small town, where he confronts the man in a saloon and kills him. Though Donovan is on the alert from the lawmen and prior enemies who pursue him, he is intent on returning to his son Sage. Upon his return, he is disheartened to find that his son is merely a broken down boy, afraid even to speak in his own voice. Donovan vows to end the cycle of violence. Yet, in his impatience with the local injustices, he seems to find himself in one violent situation after another, including mounting tension with the corrupt town sheriff and his narcissistic brother.
