I’m a retired baker and restaurant owner and at 74 still love to cook and share recipes. My husband, retired Church of Christ minister of 64 years, and I live in Lewisville, Arkansas. During our 45 years together we have worked with congregations in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas. He retired last December from the Emerson coc after almost 26 years. In each place we worked, I taught music in public schools, as well as Bible classes and Church music. I write Christian novels with 4 in print. I’ve lead singing and spoken for ladies meetings. At this time, we try to furnish food to several families in need working with the Stamps coc. My hobby is definitely cooking but my passion is writing helpful novels and helping others.

I graduated from Harding College with a degree in Bible (class of 1966) and have been married 43 years…my husband preached during the early years of our marriage, then began teaching school.  We’ve raised two sons who are faithful Christians and have six grandchildren.  Through the years I have taught pre-teen and teenage girls and ladies’ classes and have helped plan and spoken at workshops.  I have learned that life doesn’t always turn out as you plan when you are twenty, but God is there through the twists and turns we don’t expect, that He gave us the church and each other to help us on our journey to Heaven, and that Christian sisters can be a wonderful support network when Satan attacks us or our loved ones.
