My name is Bonnie Derksen. I have been a FW member since the end of April when the Lord led me to this site. Like many others, I instantly felt at home and have been very excited about the opportunities that are available.
Earlier this year, I took an on-line writing devotionals course. It was a very safe place to begin the process of allowing people, other than my family, a view of my heart, via paper. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, it ended poorly causing me to "look elsewhere"...
I have had a lot of fun entering the Writing Challenges and have been so blessed by the comments and encouragement of others. At this point in my life, with the time restraints that seem to be my temporary lot, the weekly writing challenges are a perfect fit. I want to be open to the Lord's purposes, however they unfold, AND I love this FW place!! so becoming a 500 member and thereby committing myself to this ministry made great sense
It is with great excitement and anticipation that I press on!
