Who am I?
A Christian, wife of more than 30 years and counting, shamelessly proud mother of five, vision rehabilitation therapist, author.
I grew up on a pig farm in central Missouri, and I’m proud of it. I have a bachelor's degree in counseling from the University of Missouri-Columbia and a master's in rehabilitation teaching of the blind from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
In 1987, I married Murray when we’d known each other for only six months and dated for two. After more than 30 years, we’re still praising God for bringing us together. And did I mention I have five children?
I’ve worked as a secretary and vision rehabilitation therapist. I am certified from The Library of Congress as a Braille transcriber and Braille proofreader. I was a published author as a teenager, and now after more than 30 years of little writing, I am back to it again, one of my biggest life dreams.
My dream is to write Christian fiction, showing how God’s grace continues to save us every day after we first become Christians, and humorous stories about being blind, sometimes stumbling, but always managing to get up. My first book, All My Tears, was published in April of 2019. You can buy it here. I also have written a children's book, Millie's Christmas. You can buy it here. My most-recent book is Gifts of Grace. You can buy it here.
What you might see on my blog: memories of almost anything, fun happenings with my family, articles I’ve had the privilege of publishing, old things I’ve found from my past writing life, and continuous stories of God’s grace.
