Getting Started

I’ve thought about blogging for quite some time, prayed about it, struggled with a name and then shelved it for later. Then I just figured it was time. But, and this is a big but, I am totally untech savvy. So, that being said, it will take me a while to get this up and running the way I want to. So please bear with me.

I love to read; always have. My mama read every night to my little brother and me, Bible stories and fairy tales. I have very fond memories of being snuggled up next to her side as she read to us. My favorite Bible story was Gideon. After that, she bought us a bunch of little story books with 45 rpm records attached. We could listen to books when she wasn’t reading! Kind of like today’s audio books. We were totally transfixed and even to this day, my brother Jeff can recite entire passages from memory. My favorite was Thumbelina.

So now I read almost all the time. I am never without a book. Ever. Whether it’s a physical book, or an e book, I am ready to read at a moment’s notice. I also influence for Christian fiction authors. I count it a super blessing, too, and one I will never take for granted. So expect to see a lot of book reviews and book related posts here.

I also love Jesus with all my heart and my relationship with Him is the most important in my life. I grew up in church; went the first time when I was 10 days old. I had a brief period of rebellion in my late teens but I’ve loved being in church. My mama always drilled into my brother and me the importance of standing up for Jesus. I love my church and my church family. So expect to see spiritual posts.

I also love to cook, so I may share recipes from time to time, too. I have been married over 40 years to Tom and we have a grown and gone daughter, no grandkids. She doesn’t want any and we’re okay with that. We have some honorary ones at church. We have a little dog, too, so I’ll definitely share Sam stories and pics.

When I figure out how all this blogging works, I’ll have a better looking one. So expect better things to come. Thanks for dropping by. Have a blessed day!
