I'm a freelance writer living in Spirit Lake, Idaho. Washington is where I grew up. I graduated from Western Washington University in 1993 with a major in English. My work has been published in Chattels of the Heart, The Edifier, Ancient Paths, Ncubator.com., and Christian Online Magazine.
This Bible verse sums up my thinking about writing:
“Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts,
and in the hidden part,
thou shalt make me to know wisdom,”
Psalm 51:6 KJV.
As a Christian, I know that God wants me to know Him and also know myself as He does. It is only when I humbly depend on Him that
I have something worthy to share.
I have been a book worm all my life, and love reading Christian books. They are a source of inspiration and recreation. Here are a few of my favorite authors:
Joni Eareckson Tada--
Her first book Joni, was a deep encouragement to me that I still treasure. Her books taught me many truths about the Christian life.
Her fiction teaches you how to live for God while you enjoy her well-crafted plots and characters. I enjoy most of her books, but her Redemption series is very emotionally gripping and rich in truth.
Theone and Brock Bodie--
Like Kingsbury, this duo are master story-tellers who create wonderful plots and characters, but they create historical fiction. They also make historical events come alive. I've loved their Zion Chronicles series. As you read their books, you learn rich lessons of faith to take with you.
I also love having a flower garden.
Mine includes roses!
I enjoy caring for it every summer.
Here is a glimpse of one rose:
