Love all of your comments. I can especially relate to Mary discovering her spark after years of sneaking in the time to write. I think sometimes we need our lives to shape what it is we have to say. Then it infuses the words with an additional dimension. I feel my books inside me and know I will meet all of them some day. But they do live.

I've been writing all my life, filling dozens of journals, even through the child-raising years. After working in full-time vocational ministry for over 30 years, I am now at home with an empty nest and pursuing my love for writing in hopes of re-inventing myself as a writer who gets paid for her words. 

I write non-fiction essays and devotionals that have a fresh twist of authenticity that I do not see online very often in Christian writing. So much of what I see is full of church jargon, guilt and a sense of working really hard to please God, or else ultra sweet and flowery.  I am convinced that God is already delighted with each one of us right now as we are today and that He understands our doubts, questions and honesty. I love to see the "light go on" as people realize that as believers they can stop striving and just take a breath and do what makes them happy. 

I have small things published here and there and love my blog which I began as a way to test out a book idea that I have in me. But due to job loss I now need to write with pay in mind and the book is on the back shelf for a time. So I send things to magazines and devotional companies and am constantly on the lookout for a place that will allow me to write inspirational pieces for pay.

I love this new site and look forward to connecting with others here!

I did the content writing stuff and made decent money but its not what I wanted to do. In October of 2009 after a few mild heart attacks I told myself this is it, no more. I needed to do my type of writing (fiction in a few genres).  I have always wanted to be a writer and filled many notebooks with words as a teen.  After the Heart attacks I said I am doing it and I did. My first professional essay about the HA experience was published and within 3 months my first short stories began to get published.

For many years I struggled to find time to write as I was raising eight children. I'd pull over to the curbside when a baby fell asleep in the carseat, sit on the lid of the toilet and write while a toddler splashed in the bathtub, and got up at 5:00 a.m. before anyone else was up, only to have to run up the stairs and put a baby back to sleep. I wrote only in snatched moments. It was during my husband's cancer treatment that I took the time (during his chemotherapy treatments) to open my heart and write something that wasn't contrived or forced.  I wrote from the heart. Since then, I've had many essays published that were written in the same way. The difference between those early years of writing and the past five years is that I now feel "called" to write. Not only that, but I am now open to what I define as divine inspiration. I am often led to write something that touches others or to meet the right person at the right time. A presenter at a recent conference said it this way. "If God opens a door, walk right through it." I have recently seen many doors open up to me through speaking engagements and opportunities related to my writing.

I believe I am a reader, writer and a christian whom will publish in the future, as God directs me.  Thanks for the invite.

I have never considered myself to be a writer. Still don't. But I had such a powerful testimony that everyone kept telling me that I needed to write a book and that it should be made into a movie. I had started writing but felt like I hit a wall and quit for about a year. Then one day sitting at home alone, having lost my job, all our sons had moved out, I felt God telling me to start again. For the next 4 months God kept bringing back all of the details of my search for my missing son as I finally finished the story. I can only say to God be the glory!
