About Me

A little about me …

I started writing when I was small — creating my own handmade cards with poems tucked inside to give as gifts. But it wasn’t until my first son was still-born that I realized what a gift writing could be for my own soul. My poem, “Silent Joy,” was written in minutes as I allowed my emotions to flow from my heart onto paper. Writing was therapeutic then and has been ever since.

I’ve started this blog to have a place to share hope with others. Life is full of the “unexpected” and sometimes it can really rock our world.

In both joy and sorrow, I’m determined to search and see where God is working. I believe God uses broken pieces to make one’s life a masterpiece. Through my own brokenness, I’ve discovered God’s faithfulness, which inspires me to live with gratefulness each day and to encourage others.

I believe it’s never too late to make a difference. I went back to school and graduated from college at the age of fifty. I’ve written devotions for my life group class at church and am involved in a writers’ critique group. I’ve been published in The Treasury of Christian Verse by Barbour and Company and still make handmade cards with poems tucked inside for my family and friends. I’m active on the planning committee at New Life Adoptions in Houston and co-facilitator for a support group for birth-grandmothers (women whose grandchildren have been placed with adoptive families). I’m currently in the process of writing a devotional book which I hope to get published in the near future. Stay tuned. I’ll keep you posted!

Some of my favorite things … dark chocolate, chai tea latte’s, lighthouses at night, and days when God paints rainbows in the sky.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’ll visit often.
