More About Me

Developing, creating, organizing ... that's me. I am an idea person who loves going into a situation and making it better. Or starting from scratch to develop something new. I thrive on new challenges and hard work.

I am a published writer with fifteen years' experience including trade magazine articles and various Christian writing and editing projects—books, articles, syllabi, study guides, website features, daily devotionals, brochures, radio messages, video scripts, television spots, grants and more.

Wife, mother, grandmother, writer, editor, Bible teacher, ministry director, retailer, pastoral assistant, motel operator, campaign worker, library assistant ... These and many more words have described me at times throughout my life. The description serving as an umbrella over all that, however, is "follower of Jesus Christ."

Through the years and many learning experiences—both failures and victories—I have come to the realization that the one real focus of my life must be to accomplish the purpose of the journey God has for me. Only God knows that complete purpose—my job is to trust him day by day to help me stay on his path.
