In 1992, God surprised me by calling me to ministry and this grandmother and full time employee went to college and graduate school. I spent 17 1/2 years in ministry. In the approaching illness and death of my mother I decided to retire early and I think retirement is what humans think heaven should be like. I am enjoying it to the fullest!
In 2009, God called me to write a book about my encounters with God much to my dismay, and I wrote it with a chip on my shoulder. Yes, I did what God called me to do but I wasn't happy about it....it made me vulnerable. It is a book about hope (Little Bits and Bytes of Revelation: Messages from God) and I have heard God whisper 'I told you so' many times. I have given this book away in airports more than any other place when people have been placed in my path, shared their story with me and needed hope. (Available on Amazon and Kindle).
Now, I am working on another book about how life can change in a split second. I am also beginning to paint as a creative outlet and to collect my photographs of moments when I was called to stop and take a picture for whatever reason. To often we hurry up through life and miss so many gifts that have been given to us to enjoy by the One who made us. So, I am sharing some of those missed moments of mine on Fine Art America in order that many can see these moments when we are called to STOP and receive a glimpse of those very same gifts. Enjoy!
