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.

My Precious Daughter

Sometime ago I jotted this down...from where I don't know.  I have saved it to send to my 
daughter on her birthday, which is April 1st.  It reminded me of times when I was watching 
her grow, and of happier times when I could just call her up and tell her these things.  I love 
and miss her more than this mother could ever express, so this is to Ali:

My Precious Daughter

The joy of my life was just watching you grow.
You were my little princess, all tied with a bow.
 I'd read you the same book over & over again,
and listen to "God Blesses" till you finally said "Amen".

I'd watch you through a window as you'd run and play,
and I'd say a little prayer that you'd remember one day...
That you were loved so very much, and how I loved watching you grow
Into WHO you are today...someone all the world should know.

Authors Articulating with Jo-Anne Vandermeulen

Hi Everyone,
Just in case you missed the live radio interview last night, or didn't know about it, it was recorded and you can listen in to the broadcast at:  http://tobtr.com/s/936781   I met the interviewer on a blogspot site & at www.Shoutlife.com.   Jo-Anne Vandermeulen with "Authors Articulating" invited me as a fellow author to be interviewed on Blogtalk Radio out of BC Canada.  I'm always looking for more ways to get exposure for my book, so I gladly accepted.
Claire Reeves, I hope you will listen, too, because I referenced you and your book.  Thanks again for your wonderful promo for my back cover.  Dana, thanks again for your beautiful Foreword.
Now, as follow-up I am asking all of you during this next month to team with me in getting the word out.  April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and we all need to be doing everything we can for the many, many victims who are out there, waiting for help and rescue from their abuse.  Thanks for listening to the recorded interview, and thanks for any help you may be able to give.  Please tell people about the book, because everyone in our society knows someone who has been abused, or, sadly, have been abused themselves.   Forrest and I continue to pray for those victims and their families, so that they can be healed from the scars of abuse and go on to lead happy, productive lives.
Blessings abundant to all of you,
