As you can see from the statement to the right, this site is dedicated to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Most everything posted here will in some way touch on my faith and my relationship with Him. He is my all-in-all, my beginning and my end; and I pray that this site will bring Him glory and be a blessing to all who visit.

I started this blog to share what is going on in my life, and to find an outlet for all the words that crowd into the back of my mind from time to time.
My posts will be about my faith, and my family, with a little bit of my fiction writing thrown in for good measure. I will talk about my tribulations and my triumphs, and about things that interest me or touch my heart.
I am going to attempt to keep to a schedule for my posts:
Monday’s Miscellaneous : going with the ‘M’ theme — a ‘mish-mash’ of anything and everything that is dear to my heart. Family, pets, friends, craft projects, travel, pictures, songs, hymns, book and movie reviews … you get the idea.
Wednesday’s Wisdom: excerpts from public domain books I am reading, parts that have touched me or that have really shown me something I need to learn.
Thursday’s Thoughts — a short article (or not so short, depending on the topic and my eloquence that week) on a Bible verse or Bible lesson that I happen to be studying or thinking about.
Friday’s Fiction: a short inspirational story or an excerpt from my manuscript. With this I would ask that you give me an open and honest opinion of my writing. Be my critique partner, not afraid to speak plainly. In short, take my words apart and help me improve where I need improvement, with no snarky-ness. (In all honesty I know none of you would be snarky, but I love that word –it makes me smile. )

I have started a photo blog at Highways and Byways of My Life and would enjoy a visit when you are in that neck of the woods. I may re-blog those photos here from time to time, also.
And, although I am no longer a contributor due to various factors, I do have articles posted at ChristianBlessings, if you would like to visit there.
I spent nine years volunteering part time in the office of my church, preparing the Sunday Morning Worship Service bulletins and our monthly newsletters, along with typing letters, and filing. I love working on the computer, and general office work.
When my uncle and pastor retired May 2011 due to illness, I began to pray for some other way to serve and be a blessing. I was led to start this blog.
I have always loved to read, a passion inherited from my mom and her mom. As I grew older, that interest soon evolved into trying to tell the story my way. Now I am endeavoring to put that passion to good use and bring glory to God. I want to write stories that will share my faith while entertaining and enriching the reader’s life.
Besides reading, my hobbies include scrapbooking and gardening. I love inspirational romances, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings and the Left Behind Series. My favorite movies are those that share the names of my favorite books, along with Flywheel, Facing the Giants, Fireproof and Courageous.
I am married with one son, three step-sons, one step-daughter, seven grandchildren.
