I am a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend and lover ... of life, people, music and beauty, I love to create - to paint, to color, to decorate, to cook, and I love to write.  I've been writing stories since I was old enough to write.  Most of the stories I write are about relationships, which I think are most important.  Some are humorous poems or crazy tales.


   I am a recently retired pastor who wrote many messages about God's amazing grace and love.  I plan to continue telling that story to anyone who wants to read or listen. But I want to reflect and write about all our experiences in our lives and how we find the Holy One in the midst of each one. 


   From birth to the end of life on earth, it is a journey of grace.
