At an early age I gave my life to Christ. True growth in Him, however, did not come until my world crashed around me. My 30-year marriage to a minister ended in divorce. Multiple surgeries left permanent damage, triggering a series of autoimmune diseases and limitations. Financially, I lost everything.
After stumbling upon FaithWriters I decided to test the writing waters. With each Writing Challenge I told small parts of my life which resulted in big emotional and spiritual healing results.
Until FWs my writing experience consisted of helping my first husband prepare term papers for multiple theology and counseling degrees, assisting my two sons with their papers, preparing weekly bulletins, newsletters, promotional materials, and Bible studies. I wrote fundraising materials for our mission work in India, wrote materials for our denomination's youth department, and wrote for evangelists. I also served as an executive assistant at a Bible college and two Fortune-500 companies. None of these writing projects were personal as are my stories on FWs.
