I normally introduce myself with a firm handshake, a warm smile and a nod. But since I can’t do that through cyberspace I will attempt to do it with words. Words are usually my best suit anyway. I got my first taste of writing years ago when I started journaling my way through Bible studies. It became a source of great spiritual strength for me. The more I wrote the more I discovered about myself. Journaling lead to a depth of emotional healing and personal growth that ignited a passion in me for writing. I found myself writing on napkins, church bulletins, check stubs, and just about anything.
My writing has evolved as an amazing gift from God. It gives meaning to my madness. It is my tool for expression, inspiration and encouragement. I absolutely love writing. My heart is like a treasure chest full of divine thoughts. It pounds with enthusiasm for life and thus the writer’s wheel in my head never stops turning. Well almost never.
My personal testimony was recently published in a monthly magazine produced by my church denomination. My goal is to pursue writing as a ministry. I want to share thought provoking words that will shatter strongholds and rebuild broken lives.
I know that after years of storing words and phrases from one end of my house to the other that it is time to start building something great for the Kingdom of God. I know that this is the season of great harvest in my life.
I have lived the later part of my life with my husband and two kids in a thriving university community. This same community is also my church denominational headquarters. So I am surrounded with Theological PhD’s, Masters and Doctoral enthusiasts.
Living and working in this type of environment has groomed me for such a time as this. What the future holds for me, only my pondering heart can imagine.
