My name is Jay, I'm a mom, a friend, a preacher, a child of God, a sexual survivor, and a follower of Christ. I love to write, draw, shoot pool, bowl, SING, be with people, and do many crafty things.

In my supposedly retirement years, I would love to travel: Dream places; Isreal, Africa, and Japan. In these places I want to lift my voice in praise and worship, and as a testimony to who Jesus is my life, and can be in others. I want to spread the joy of the LORD.

Though my writing is fairly serious, I love to laugh and be around people who enjoy the gift of life.
