I am a small-town Southern lady (I can’t say, girl, since I’m past 40) who loves the Lord and tries my best to live my life for him.

I guess you can say I lived the typical southern girl life until a few weeks after my 15th birthday when I was in a diving accident at a local park. I damaged my spinal cord at the C5 – C6 level and became a quadriplegic. Life as I knew it changed.

Since then, I say my life has not been easy, but it has been blessed. (My full testimony is here.)

During difficult days, I might not always see those blessings. But, I know God is in control and has his best in store for me. This is my hope and my mainstay during hard times.

With my writing (on this blog or in my books) I want to share this hope and mainstay. I want to share words of faith and encouragement in hopes they will bring readers closer to God and help them persevere by faith, one day at a time
