When someone asks me what my most rewarding experience is as a writer, I tell them it is hearing that something I wrote touched a heart.
That's why I write.
I write devotionals, articles and stories, but my most exciting assignment, so far, has been writing Bible stories for Spark Story Bible. This is a family Bible for kids of all ages. Toddlers enjoy being read to. Early readers love learning to read with adventures from the Bible. And adults cuddle their little ones under their arms, read and share the excitement.
I taught elementary Sunday school for more than twenty years, but today I lead Bible studies for women at Balboa Baptist Church, Hot Springs Village, Arkansas and at New Beginnings Pregnancy Resource Center, Benton, Arkansas. I am also blessed to serve as chaplain at Saline Memorial Hospital, Benton, Arkansas. My favorite things are reading, writing, kayaking, knitting and making jewelry.
I live with Dennis my husband and Maggie our dog in our home by the lake, a paradise on earth.
