I've been told by many that I'm a natural encourager. For you FaithWriters' folks, I'm the originator of the whole jewels/jewelers deal. It has been a complete and total blessing, and I'm absolutely thrilled that my dear partner in...um....confusion(?) Patty Wysong has helped us take it to this brand new level.
I love to write and have had assorted stories published in a handful of magazines and a few Christian writing anthologies. My current writing focus is children's books - picture books, more specifically. I'm still in the learning stage, but enjoying it immensely.
My other writing projects include this blog the Midwestern group blog The Barn Door, a monthly post at Internet Cafe' Devotions and, occasionally, the Faithwriters' Writing Challenge. I am also doing some editing on the side, which I truly enjoy (and have been told I am quite good at). My other passion is God's Word, which I find can meet my every need, if I'll just do more than read it. ;) God has sustained me and my family through so much, and it is my ministry (among others) to share that sustenance, and God's work, with all who will listen.
I'm also on Twitter and Facebook. Hook with me there too!
