"Go stand in the temple courts, he said and tell the people the full message of this new life" Acts 5:20 (NIV)
Love is a strange creature that no man can understand.
I want to allow God's light to shine through all the broken places in my life. One heart at a time I want to reach the spiritually disconnected and introduce them to Jesus through my writing so living an ordinary life is no longer an option. I want to share my daily struggle to represent God in my everyday life. I want them to realize they are not alone. We are in this struggle together. I am an author working under the Holy Spirit's daily direction. She focuses on the Holy Spirits daily direction for her life and writing. She has enjoyed a creative partnership with the Holy Spirit for many years. I want to encourage people through the written word with the help of the whispered power of The Holy Spirit I write about the beauty and simplicity of life. Through my writing I want to reveal the beauty of Christ. I listen for the Lord's direction and write what is put on my heart to encourage the lost and broken souls of the world. I have been told that my writings remind people of the Psalms of David. I am similar to Ruth Graham Bell and Helen Steiner Rice. I have finally come to realize my purpose in life is to write what is on God's heart and encourage them with it.
