Finally at age 47, I am attempting to follow the dream I have had for most of my life - to be a writer. After dealing with a chronic illness, watching my husband battle cancer, struggling to hang on after losing my daughter in an auto accident and watching the bittersweet journey of my only other daughter in the foreign mission field --- I feel I not only want to write but need to write, for myself and hopefully for others trying to deal with struggles in their own life.

In addition to writing hubs I am also the Paper Crafts Editor for BellaOnline. I also three blogs and would love for you to check them out and let me know what you think:

Christian Parenting - The Kingdom Driven Mom

Scrapbooking, Rubberstamping and Party Planning - Moments to Celebrate

Victorian Renovation, Diary of my House, Tea, Lace, Etc. - Bartlett-Stokes House
