I began writing in my pre-teen years. Those first forty pages still exist, though I have never been able to figure out how to get my heroine out of trouble. In 2010 I returned to Canada after 15 years as a missionary with Fellowship International working in Caracas, Venezuela. This follows 8 years in Colombia, a stint in the mission's home office in Canada and ministry as part of local church staff. Writing has had a part in all of these assignments including everything from prayer letters to Bible Studies to magazine articles to promotional pieces, dramas, skits and children's materials.
Currently I am working part-time as Director of Adult Education at First Baptist Church in Timmins, Ontario, Canada and continue to work with mission as part of the Communications staff. As well, I am the Managing Editor of THRIVE magazine, the official communication tool of our National Fellowship.
In July, 2009, my devotional study, Divine Design for Daily Living was published in Spanish. In October of the same year, the English edition was also published and is available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
In 2013, Ordinary People With An Extraordinary God was published. This book told some of the personal stories of the missionaries who have served and are serving with Fellowship International and was written in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the mission.
