WELCOME TO MY BLOG SITE...My Little Corner of the World!

Hello Everyone and Welcome!

I hope you will join me here often to read thoughts expressed by myself and others on what we feel is important to becoming a more Godly person. We all have our own ideas of what contributes to our character and how we become what we are, but as most of us in these blog pages, we want to share what is or has been important in our lives. Sometimes it's just venting, and sometimes it's wanting to share something we feel is profound. For whatever reason, I am moved to share with YOU, and hope that you will be a follower who gains something by reading these blogs. If you feel that others might benefit from reading it, please invite them in. Please feel free to comment, and I'd love to hear from you, and to know what is important to YOU. Thank you for stopping by, and may God bless you and help you in your endeavors to grow and become more like Him each day.

About Me

My photo
Airway Heights, WA, United States
I'm a retired lady who is enjoying writing to help others. My husband and I have 4 children, 14 grandchildren (1 is in heaven), 7 great grandsons and 3 great granddaughters. We enjoy riding ATVs & camping, and spending time with family & friends. In the past I have been a church youth leader, cub scout and 4H leader, and studied under the Sitka Christian Counselor's Assoc. My first book "Father, Forgive My Father" was published in 2005, and you will see references to it throughout my blogs. Now I'm writing magazine articles & building my platform for my book. Currently I am enjoying being on talk radio interviews. I am also available to present my workshop "Becoming God's Woman" to church and women's groups. My greatest desire is to see people set free from the bondage of sexual child abuse and become healed and free children of God, ready to soar to new heights of victory and have life more abundantly. THIS is what God wants for His children. In the new year 2012, I intend to write more frequently on this blog, so visit us often.

Introducing Myself & My Book

Hello Everyone, I'm the new girl on the block and thought I'd just drop by to say "Hi" and introduce myself and my book. Aside from my 2 children, it is my life's best work...and the longest to complete. I'm a little ashamed to say (but not daunted by the fact) that it took me over 35 years to complete, and perhaps might never have been finished if I hadn't met and married my husband. He was my greatest advocate and encourager over these last 7 years, and through his constant prompting, I finally got with it and kept at it until the task was done.

You probably want to ask, "Why did it take you so long?" My only excuse is that the abuse of my childhood led me to make bad decisions and choices in my younger years, and when you do that, you find yourself starting over...and over...and over again. That resulted in years of counseling and reconstructing my fragmented heart and mind. Well, you can't get much done in the way of writing, when you're so messed up that you can't think straight. Way back then I tended to choose husbands in the past who needed "fixing"; THEY needed my attention, were either alcoholics and/or abusive, and were not supportive to me when it came to writing my story. So, only when I married my 4th (and last) husband, was I finally with someone who would support me in every way...and he has, praise the Lord.

Now, we are an older retired couple, living in the foothills of the Cascade Mtns. of western Washington State, and enjoying our individual projects, and our family who live nearby. We have a big dog whose name is Bosco, an older orange tabby cat named Peaches, and a family of black cats we rescued over the past 2 summers: Mama Mitsy, Daddy Tommy, and "baby" Owey who weighs 20 lbs. now.
They are a joy to us since they have become our children in our empty nest. My husband has his hobby of restoring old cars, and I write magazine articles now to try and help others and to reach as many victims of child abuse as I can. We both keep very busy in our retirement.

I would like to invite anyone who has a problem with child abuse, needs to heal their wounds, or knows anyone who needs help, to email me or blog me back. My desire is to help others get through what I know is the hardest hurdle they will ever encounter...and to do it sooner, rather than later like I did. Nice to meet you all, and I pray each and every one of you have a wonderful New Year.
