The leader of this session went on to explain that we tend to include in our descriptors those characteristics of our lives we have had to defend; those descriptors we perceive as marginalizing us in our society. It was an interesting exercise.
However, I believe God made me the person I am for a reason. I celebrate the fact I am a woman. I take joy in being a wife, mother, and daughter and now a grandmother. And above all, I praise God I am a Christian, a believer in Christ Jesus
Through it all though, I have always been a writer. I see writing as both a gift and a ministry. While I was in the field of professional education I was able to publish in professional journals. Now God has opened a new door. I am writing the stories I love to read. I am turning my pen (or in this case, my keyboard) to fiction and children’s books. I am also trusting God as I take on freelance writing assignments. My most recent nationally published articles may be found in Chicken Soup for the Soul: the Power of Positive and the Home Health Aide Digest. In 2013 I will have two articles in The Lookout Magazine, published by Standard Publishing.
