I love to be outdoors, I’m a music fanatic, I love beautiful things, I love to learn and I love to write. I especially love to write about the past and I am often overcome with nostalgia for simpler (and seemingly better) times. But, today, more important than any of my creative pursuits (that are ever-fleeting and ultimately futile) I am a Christ Follower. I always considered myself a Christian, but I certainly didn’t live like one. I was sincere in my belief that Jesus Christ (Yeshua) died for my sins and rose again and that I was saved by grace alone and not by works, but there was something missing. A dramatic change happened in my life when I decided to finally read the entire Bible. I used to think it was just another piece of literature, but as I have read and studied the Word daily for over a year now (I’ve read the entire Bible once and am now on my second time reading and studying the New Testament in 2018) I am fully convinced that there is supernatural power in the Word of God — power to heal and transform. It has truly changed my life and is transforming me and healing me daily. I will continue to treasure the past and write about times and ways of life that are quickly being forgotten, but I am excited about the present and the plans that God has for me. I have a special place in my heart for the broken — those who have experienced great loss or abuse in their lives, those who struggle with alcohol or drug abuse, and all those great sinners (like me) who seek a Savior.
