 About Self
I have been writing non-fiction and inspirational writing for about 15 years, with a drought in my twenties due to health reasons and discouragement. I know that I was created to write, and in whatever capacity God reveals, I want to use it to expand His kingdom. I recently finished the first draft of my memoir. It's my story of a girl from the "perfect" family who dances a long, slow duet with anorexia. Finally, in the wake of those dark days, God used the strength, patience and humility I gained through that pain to save my marriage. I am here to learn, to share and hopefully to find a clear direction for God's plan to use my writing for His glory.
