Welcome to My Blog

What is there to tell about your life?

I’ll tell you what there is to tell about mine; everything. Please don’t panic and click the back arrow. My intent is not to share every boring or gory detail. Rather, I long to reveal both the mundane and miraculous aspects of my life in which God shows up and reminds me that He is my everything. And, everything He does is worth telling.

Please browse around and join the conversation. I’m excited we can begin this storytelling journey together. I hope you are too.

Have a cup of coffee, or tea, on me!

Thank you for visiting my blog. I extend a special welcome to my friends from the Dallas Christian Writer’s Guild and The Writer’s View 2 (TWV2.)

I find joy and comfort in the company of writers. As I travel the journey to publication I also take pleasure in meeting the people who help writers along the way. I especially appreciate the encouragement of agents, editors and other industry experts.

Blogging helps connect this community but it certainly doesn’t replace getting to know someone face-to-face. Although I’d love to get to know each of you better over a cup of coffee or tea, I realize this is not a practical reality. So, I would like to offer you the opportunity enjoy a beverage with friends, family or someone you might like to get to know better.

If you post a comment on my blog this month you will be entered into a contest to win a $10 Starbucks gift card. If you sign-up for my blog feed you double your chances of winning. Sorry to all my Canadian friends who might have their hearts set on a gift card to Tim Horton’s but a Tim’s is a rare sighting in these here parts.

If you like, please share why groups like the Dallas Christian Writer’s Guild or TWV2 are important to you. In my case, both have provided extraordinary opportunities to grow as a writer and find people dedicated to words and the word of god.

Have a blessed day,

Welcome to My New Blog!

Let me tell you something; butterflies flutter in my belly. Yes, it’s true. Right now as I write, I imagine you reading. I think; what do I have to tell that you want to hear?

I hope we spend enough time together to find out.

I worked in the public relations industry for 20 years writing and speaking about topics important to other people, corporations and causes. Now I turn my attention to the significant stories around me.

If you join me on this storytelling journey I’ll introduce you to my teenager and toddler. You can imagine a teenager and a toddler provide much content on the adventure of parenting! I should mention I have a wonderful husband and two cute dogs – not to throw my husband into the mix with them because he certainly deserves at least a sentence or two but that will have to wait.

I’m so glad you are here and feel humbled that you would consider traveling this storytelling road with me. I live to tell about my life in hopes that someone may live to hear about it and be blessed. I aspire to hear you say, “Wow, I can relate to that!”

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of my new Web site.

With joy and thankfulness,
