  • My Answers:

    Why blogging? Well, it all started back in 1976 when I took my first flight on an airplane, and I knew then I would share my story on the internet. Wait 🤔, wrong story; the internet wasn’t around then, just another episode involving my crazy imagination!

    Seriously folks, I started blogging because my heart had a story to tell; God has hearts for me to reach. I’ve been writing for about eight plus years, during that time my family and friends have been asking me to share my writing. I didn’t feel that it was the right time, I feel led that 2018 is the year chosen. Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not blogging for notoriety. This story is about God’s love, and compassion. The influence is about how His love has made a difference within my heart, and how that love can impact the hearts of the reader; with a story that will speak into the hearts of others. Not with my words, but with A word, that will point hearts in the direction, of the changer of hearts!

    My advice, take hold of today, tomorrow was never truly promised! Take hold of your heart, don’t ever worry about the battles you face. True strength can forever be yours, when you realize that true strength comes from the courage. To face the battles of life, with your God given strength; found within! This is my advice to you, and to yours! God Bless!
