As far back as I can remember I have been fascinated by descriptive words and how talented authors could knit them together to form beautiful pictures and exciting stories. Reading became my passion; writing became my dream. Both have taken me places I could never have physically traveled.
Writing inspirational and encouraging articles and devotionals is what brings me most delight. I have enjoyed the blessing of serving as editor/author of Feminisinsights, a women’s section of a Christian publication for 20 years. My writings have appeared in Think, a Focus Press publication; Herald of Truth blogs; and Heartlight Magazine, a daily Christian electronic publication. The Forming Faith Foundations ministry has given me additional opportunity to write devotionals as well as serving in their annual retreats. The publishing of Beyond the Rain and Don’t Hurry the Sunrise is the realization of a life-long dream.
I enjoy continuing my work in ministry with Herald of Truth Ministries, a mass media/evangelistic outreach ministry in Abilene, Texas where I have been for more than 12 years. Enjoying time with my four children, their spouses and the 13 precious ones who call me “Yonna” is my favorite pass time.
