~ About Me ~


I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own [yet]; but one thing I do [it is my one aspiration]: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward. ~ Philippians 3:13-14 (Amp)

I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ's sufficiency]. - Philippians 4:13 (Amp)

I started writing Inspirational Christian poetry in the beginning of 1995. Many years prior, I wrote Christian songs. I do enjoy writing songs (when inspired) and the lyrics to other people's music. I began writing songs when I was about 12 years old - although I wasn't a Christian at the time and the songs reflected where I was at. When I came to the Lord, the songwriting dramatically changed. Sometimes I'd just start singing them spontaneously. I don't really write songs now.

God planted in my heart a dream to write a Christian children's picture book series. At the time I started writing Christian poetry, I had an idea to write kids stories in rhyme. I started it around 2002, but it tends to get shelved. My hope is to have it finished and published one day. I have also been involved in writing secular children's picture book stories, which I would also love to have published one day.

Around 2003, God spoke to me about writing Christian devotionals-and I have been writing devotionals ever since. I also started writing Christian sentiments.

My hope and prayer for this site, is that you will find encouragement and comfort in the words of these poems & devotionals. Also, that you will be challenged in your walk with God to press on in Him more.
