I’m so glad you dropped by. Thanks for joining my adventure, one in which I’m led by the Lord, encouraged by His strength, and driven by His purpose – down the path called Writing.
The road is not new. This girl has been writing for as long as she can remember, and that is saying something, since she has passed the half century mark and is quickly sailing on towards the next decade. I spent my early elementary recess times in the library, helping shelve books in hopes of finding new favorites. At that time, all that mattered was horses, so my check-out list leaned heavy towards The Black Stallion (Farley), The Horse and His Boy (Lewis), and any other author who wrote about equines. At the same time I was voraciously reading all I could get my hands on, I started writing stories. The written word is strong in my family.
Kevin is my love, best friend, and life partner of over 35 years. I’ve had him longer than his parents. Whenever we argued and I tried to give him back, before his mom passed away, she would say, “No, you’ve had him longer. He’s all yours!”
The Lord has blessed us with three lovely adult children, Taylor and Jamie, and Chelsie. Between them, we have the joy of loving five beautiful grandchildren. Nana and Papa are thrilled and can often be found making messes with them, or more often, cleaning up disasters from fun activities. Sad to say, their energy levels are triple our reserves. The fact is, we are ready for bed after a day with the grands.
I’m content, challenged, and inspired in my writing life. Blogging, editing, writing online articles, creating curriculum plans, dreaming up picture books, penning devotional and inspirational books, and researching non-fiction books are some outlets for my creativity and putting pen to paper. Er, fingers to computer.
Journey with me through the twists and turns of life – the writing life. Don’t forget to stop and smell the lavender and lilac. You thought I was going to say roses. They smell nice, but I do so love lavender and lilac.
