Do you remember the first time you said, “When I grow up, I want to be…”?

I wanted to be a nurse, or a teacher, or a singer. God has given me the privilege of being a wife, a mother, and a grandmother.

I nursed my family through illnesses. And I’ve learned to appreciate the care and skills of professional nurses.

I taught Sunday School classes and Bible Clubs, and I homeschooled for twelve years.

I used musical skills in church.

For many years now I have been a writer. I love the sound of words. I love to put words together in a meaningful way.  I have been rewarded with publication a few times.

I want my words to glorify God and help others.

This year marks a new turn in my life journey. On November 20 my first romance novel, Meadowsong, is scheduled to be released by Mantle Rock Publishing out of Benton, KY. Wow!

I want to thank agent Jim Hart for taking me on as a client. And thank you, Kathy Cretsinger for accepting my manuscript for publication.

I still have much to learn.  I’m sure the road will be bumpy at times. But with perseverance and by God’s grace, I will reach my publication destination.

From the sheepfold I’d like to share my life’s verse with you:

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5,6 NKJ
