I am a Writer, Poet, Therapy Dog Mom, Homeschool Mom, Nana, and much more. My days are full, but there is always time for writing and reading. It is my prayer GOD will choose to use me in the "craziness" of each day.

Nancy at Boomers and Scribblers nominated me for the Stylish Blogger Award! Nancy has been a faithful follower of Arise 2 Write for a long time. She is a blessing and has become a friend and devoted sister in the Lord. Please visit Nancy and you will be touched by her sincere and genuine faith, just as I have been.
A part of receiving this award is sharing seven things about myself, so here goes:
1)Like some of you, I am challenged by circumstances from my childhood. My Heavenly Father has been the constant in my life, giving me the desire to write from a very early age. He continues to use writing to heal and restore my heart. Whatever is going on in your life right now, I challenge you to "write your way through it!"
2)I am the daughter of two parents who did not plan or want me. They were very young and married as a result of my conception. I was primarily raised by my maternal grandparents. They are fully responsible for giving me a foundation of faith and love!
3)I am the oldest of three daughters. My middle sister, Courtney lives many miles away, but we are best of friends! My youngest sister, Dayna was tragically killed in 1989. She is never more than a thought away.
4)I am the mother of three sons and two daughters. We have a blended family, but in both mine and my husbands hearts each of our children is "ours!" God brought us together and has beautifully blessed both us and our children. The blending process was challenging and sometimes painful, but I am thankful HE knew what was best for each of us.
5)Recently, I accepted GOD's call to write a memoir or memoirs about my childhood. I have passionately embraced this call, yet there are days I am passionately running in the opposite direction.
6)I am the mom to three therapy dogs. I trained them and have been blessed to be the human at the end of the leash as GOD uses them in the lives of many.
7)My dream would be to have my own mountain with a small cabin. My dream cabin would have indoor plumbing and heat and a/c. I am a bit spoiled. My mountain would have a fence around the base so my dogs could roam free. So now you know the real me!
I am passing this award to the following bloggers:
1)Rich Gifts: I would not have a beautiful blog without Edie at Rich Gifts. She is a beautiful woman with a beautiful heart who is very tech savvy. She is responsible for the blog design of Arise 2 Write.
2)Divinely Designed: I would not be a blogger if it were not for the persistence of Mary. She pushed, shoved, and drug me by the hair of the head into the blog world. She has been a faithful friend and prayer warrior, despite the physical injuries, ha ha! Mary is also a published author and professional speaker. She has an expensive bio, too long to list here!
3)To each of my followers: Each of you have a stylish and unique blog, all beautiful in their own way. Please accept this award and post it on your blogs. Each of you deserve it.
By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,
~Please continue to pray for my friends. Several friends are in the midst of medical crisis. Please pray for me as I try to be the best friend I can be for each of them.
