Living for Christ With a Passion for Writing!

Straight Talk from a Conservative/Judeo/Christian Perspective


Married to Mark 32 years and still crazy in love with the guy. I was an Army wife for 30 years. Mark retired Feb. 2010 after 33 years of service. I'm an Army Mom to Sgt. Alex Van Drie as well. He and his beautiful wife Kristen have given us two wonderful grandchildren, Kaylee Michele three yrs. and Mark a year old. I am also Mom to two beautiful grown daughters Amber and Allie. Allie recently married a terrific young man, Captain Erik Wood. My husband and I are very blessed indeed!

I write and have been writing for decades - primarily as a regional publication freelancer and newspaper reporter/columnist (we've moved 21 times and I've written in one form or another in most all of the places we've lived).

Currently, I am involved in some major projects:

I am writing/editing a Christian novel series.

I also work for Michael English music ministry. www.michaelenglishmusic.com

It is both an honor and a blessing (and I truly mean that) to be involved with such a worthy, God blessed ministry as Michael's.

The third major project in my life is developing and bringing to the medical market-place a patent I hope will help hospitals maintain a more germ-free environment using my inovation.

I am a shoot-from-the-hip Christian. Jesus was outspoken, the evidence for this is in the Bible. One example: "Get thee behind me Satan." Speaking to his own Apostle.

So when you come here, expect me to speak out on many issues. I'm no wallflower.
