Meet VirginiaLynne on HubPages

I am so thrilled to give a warm “Hug” here this day to a beautiful, vibrant and special woman and hubber, VirginiaLynne, who is an educator of college English and has been so for 20 years, as well as a mother of five beautiful children, two adopted from China. She did not marry and start a family until her mid-30s, and what a lovely family with which she has been blessed! She and her husband both teach at a large University.

Those who have family members suffering from Alzheimer's or dementia, may benefit from reading VirginiaLynne's multiple hubs covering such important issues facing many families today. Each time I choose a person to "Hug," I pray and ask the Lord to reveal to me either one who needs a little encouragement as to their writing, or one, as in VirginiaLynne's case, who will bless many through her writings to His glory. She writes many articles on adoption too. My prayer is that many will receive a blessing from reading VirginiaLynne's hubs on important issues facing many families this day.

This lovely woman is also the go-to person when it comes to writing any type of essay for college one needs to write. Further, if you are interested in adopting a child internationally, or are concerned for your parents or in-laws as relates to Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, she can help in those areas as well.

I hope all who read will take advantage of all 275 of her most informative hubs, as it appears many are missing out on her valuable expertise and insight into many topics. VirginiaLynne certainly needs no help in the area of her hubber score of a perfect 100. She has been a member of HubPages for two years and is an Apprenticeship Alum.

I am overjoyed that VirginiaLynne allows anyone to use her photos under a CC-BY, via HubPages agreement, so long as a link is provided back to her page! Her personal photos on all of her hubs are really special and add much to each hub. Once you click on one of her hubs, you will be treated to such a delight for your eyes at times with photos of all of her beautiful children.

Supermom Shares Practical Advice


She is also truly a supermom in every sense of the word. VirginiaLynne can tell you all about how to make money from home and have fun as a copywriter. She is happy to share her story and how you can start copywriting today! See the link here to the right.


VirginiaLynne also shares five tips for writing a sample copy assignment for Interact Media, Textbroker or other Copywriting firms.


Also, VirginiaLynne shares her best and most practical advice on parenting and what to remember when making parenting decisions, as a mom of five children.


When it comes to children who suffer with a speech impediment, whose self-esteem also suffers from bullies, VirginiaLynne offers a great book review of "Hooway for Wodney Wat," which is such an encouraging book for all children, especially those who are struggling with bullying and speech impediments.


When it comes to manners and children, VirginiaLynne offers fun and practical ideas on how to use home tea parties to teach manners to children. She is great to include fun ideas and recipes to use at home and with friends.


All God's Children

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

All One Needs to Know About International Adoption


VirginiaLynne provides invaluable advice in the area of international adoption, everything from providing what one must do to get the process started in preparing yourself and the child for the trip, to what are the advantages of adoption for families, reasons why one should adopt a child and explaining how adoption changes a family.

She always explores the question of whether one should adopt, as well as should one adopt when one already has children. Then there is always the reality of what if one cannot adopt.

There is no doubt one will truly enjoy reading of her family’s story of adopting a baby from China. She also tells of their experience with government agencies and all the paperwork involved while going through an international adoption. You will be prepared and informed after reading her hubs on international adoption in any area of the whole process of adopting that precious child and increasing your family by adding and experiencing the joy of a precious child to your family or even adding another child to your family if you already have children.

She has so many that I could not include all topics here in this "Hug" and I would love to see many more commenting on her hubs. She certainly needs no help from me as far as her score, but I sure do hate to see many missing out reading her very informative hubs on many topics from A to Z!

      Hi Joelle,

      So wonderful to see you here this day reading about an extraordinary woman who is an amazing writer and who is willing to share all of her knowledge in writing with others to help those in their College years and beyond! Yes, she is a shining example of showing just how blessed one can be in marrying in her mid-30s and being blessed beyond measure with such a gorgeous family of five children. Her smile is contagious and you know all of those precious children just adore her. My daughter is not married, and so all hope for a loving and beautiful family should never be lost, and VirginiaLynne is a beautiful example of such coming true.

      Please check out her very useful hubs. You will be amazed just at how many topics she covers!

      Have a wonderful weekend sweet friend.

      Thanks for sharing Virginia with us. I am going to check her out. I have an adopted grandson from Guatemala. He will be 7 in December and he is a bright star in my life. His brothers are adopted also, domestic. One is latino and the other caucasian. I don't think of them as adopted or race, just my grands. I don't like it when people judge couples who adopt from outside the US. I don't think it's right to judge couples who adopt from the US. Both criticisms say "But there are so many children here or there that need homes." I always say, what difference does it make. God doesn't care. Orphans need homes regardless. There are plenty of children around the word and at home who need families.

      I actually contemplated studying to be an English teacher, but God had other plans for me. But it was and is my greatest strength academically. Looking forward to getting acquainted with Virginia and her hubs. Thanks for your hugs to our hub community Faith. You are an angel. Love, love love sister.

      Hi precious sister, lambservant,

      Always so lovely when you stop by to read! Oh, what a sweet blessing is your adopted grandson from Guatemala. Seven is such a wonderful age. Thank you for sharing about him here. I know without a doubt, he is such a bright star in your life. I would not think of any adopted child differently than any other child either, for God loves them all and it matters not about the race either. An orphan from wherever is an orphan and we know what God says about orphans no matter what country they are from, God does not differeniate, nor should we! Excellent point precious heart.

      If English is your greatest strength academically, then maybe God will use you in some manner for He does want us to use our gifts to His glory. I know He already has plans for you, as you have stated, but you can always pray about it and listen to what He reveals to you if you are to use your greatest strength in serving Him.

      Please do get acquainted with VirginiaLynne and her wonderful hubs, for you will not be disappointed in the least bit.

      Thank you for your most kind and generous comments here.

      God bless you. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Hi Faith Reaper-

      I think for now I'm just reading and responding. At Ericdierker's suggestion that I should write one on what I have been doing for four years-developing a theory that scientifically validates the Word of God, and writing a book, "Logics of the Kingdom" that communicates the specifics, I did. But, the format and/or content was not accepted by HubPages, and I'm not sure that's where my energy should be spent right now, anyway. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement Faith!

Yes, such a theory and book should be published with a major publishing company, and I know God has great plans for you for you are working to glorify Him and His Word. I will be in prayer for you and your amazing endeavors. I pray you continue and never give up on such a project, for I know you do have such a brilliant mind and God has a plan for you to use that brilliant mind of yours to His glory! Yes, I agree about not wasting your energy in the wrong mediums to attain your goals.

      Thank you for the confirmation as well as the encouragement. It's really nice, because I feel a release to talk about it now. I couldn't tell a soul what I was doing for three years. It was a trying time of literally spending seventy hours a week learning about physics, chemistry, wave and light dynamics, first- and second-order phase transitions, and everything else scientific and was basically silenced by the Lord; He had plan and all I could do was be obedient, be silent, pray for understanding and to be provided with the bridges between His Word and science, and follow and learn everything I could. Anyway, you hit the nail on the head when you said that the Work will glorify Him...That's what it's all about, and I'm so encouraged that you "get it". Thank you for the encouragement. May God furnish you with the peace that passes all understanding as you go forth this week.

      Blessings,

      Virginia Lynne sure sounds like quite a dynamic and fascinating person with a full life, and it is brilliant that you have brought her to the fore and given her a little recognition. Certainly worth checking her work out.

      Thank you, and trust all continues to be well for you and your kith and kin.

      With Warm Regards,

      Oh, God bless you dearest Hfortinberry! I am so thankful you do feel a release, and I am sure it was indeed trying, especially spending those 70 hours a week. Yes, His timing is always perfect and so I am thrilled you are being obedient, which is most important for the plans He has in store for you to be fulfilled! I am so glad you are encouraged and I am sure that I "get it" only because He revealed such to me.

      Thank you for your kind words, and I do know of such peace, His peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding for I began to experience such when I had cancer and immediately, His peace just rained down on me and I never once had any fear, and I knew He would heal me, and He did!

      May you continue to be obedient in all your endeavors, and He will reveal much to you in doing so.

      Blessings to you too,

      Faith Reaper

      It's lovely to learn about new hubbers by reading your 'Hugs" hubs, Faith. VirginiaLynne sounds like an interesting person and writer. It's wonderful that she has adopted children, too.

      Dearest Romeos,

      Thank you for gracing my hub space here with your lovely words which always sing so sweetly in one's ears : )

      Yes, VirginiaLynne is indeed a dynamic and fascinating woman... and yes, has a very full life! Please do check out some of her hubs, for I know she has something that may be of a benefit to you by reading. She has published many articles on many varied topics.

      Yes, all is well with my kith and kin. In fact, I updated a photo of Scarlett raising both arms over her head on the other piece.

      Hugs and love to you and yours always,

      Well dear Faith that is just marvellous news - I think I did see the new pic you put up recently, but was probably so happy for you all that I never left a remark :)

      I love it when deserving people receive blessings - it feels so right, and I'm so pleased about your good news.

      Take care dearest Faith, for you are one of a kind; irreplaceable, unique, and a breathe of fresh air who could probably resuscitate that lamb-shoulder chop on Hub of the Day :)

      My Dear faithful one, Frank,

      Oh, what a lovely thing to say about my hugs.

      Well, my goodness, precious heart, I am humbled that you would even think of me to vote for in the Hubbie Awards at all, much less in many categories! I am so glad you had "faith" that I would show up in one of the categories, and I did! Thank you so much. I am deeply touched.

      Although I do not think of myself as "religious" per se, I sure do love the Lord and attempt to show His love to all in my commenting, and when I write something I want to convey a message of hope and love. I pray I have not come across as too preachy.

      Have a wonderful weekend. Thank you again, for blessing me this day in letting me know such. You are always so kind and generous in your commenting to me.

      (((Hugs))) and God bless you,

      Faith Reaper

      Lovely profile of a fellow Hubber. VirginiaLynne sounds like an awesome lady! She has a beautiful family. I tried to adopt a little girl from China, as it was my dream, however, there were restrictions about parents who have disabilities. (I have MS but you'd never know it from looking at me.)

      Faith Reaper 3 years ago from southern USA

      Dear Flourish,

      Always so nice when you stop by to read. Yes, VirginiaLynne is an awesome lady indeed, who is blessed with a beautiful family. I love that she did not start her family until a bit later in her life, and what a blessing.

      Aw, precious heart, thank you for sharing of your dream of adopting a child from China. I am sorry to know of such restrictions of those with MS, for I know without a doubt, you would make a most wonderful and loving parent to any child. I wonder if such restrictions are placed on those who are foster parents? Many children would be blessed by your presence in serving in places where children need to be shown love by someone such as yourself.

      Maybe VirginiaLynne knows of a way to allow adoption, being your MS is not apparent and most likely not a hindrance in any way to your loving a child. I will pray about this issue.

      God bless you precious heart.

      Hi Faith and Virginia Lynn.

This wonderful person has found a place in my heart with her love of children, and her work with adoption. I look forward to following her on the hub. Thank you or this beautiful introduction.

      Hi sweet lady, Virginia (Genna),

      Thank you for sharing of your full name, Virginia. It is most certainly a beautiful name for a beautiful person such as yourself and VirginiaLynne. Oh, I know you will enjoy reading VirginiaLynne's wonderful hubs and there are so many on all kinds of topics to choose from indeed! I found it so interesting how she waited a bit later in life to get married and then was blessed beyond measure with her five children, two adopted. She certainly has a heart of love for all, and I know she is a beautiful blessing to all as well as her lovely children are to her no doubt!

      Oh, thank you so much for the congrats on the Hubbie. I am so humbled and shocked to be honest that anyone would even think of me. I am blessed knowing that in my mind, I think of it as a sort of People's Choice Award, which means the world to me. There are so many wonderful hubbers/writers here that I have come to know and love, such as yourself.

      (((Hugs))),

      Is she for real, or simply a real life angel - who can write? lol

      You did her proud here, and yourself as well! A fine tribute and introduction to someone who truly deserves a HUG of the DAY!

      Congratulations on your award, Faith. I caught some, but not all - i'm so sorry i missed yours! SO well deserved..

      Hi Dear Leslie,

      So wonderful to see you here this day! I hope all is well with you and yours. Thank you so much for such kind and generous comments here. Yes, she is the real deal for sure, with a heart of love for children, obviously. I think it is so wonderful that she waited a bit later in life to marry and then was blessed beyond measure with such a beautiful family of five gorgeous children, to include two adopted. She certainly has a lot of energy and her hubs on dieting naturally are so interesting.

      She is a writer extraordinaire and has written on so many topics, there has to be something there for all.

      I appreciate you sharing this "Hug" ...

      Thank you so much for the congrats on the Hubbie, and I am so appreciative for all who voted for me and humbled, for to me, as I have already shared it is like receiving the People' Choice Awards, so that is what makes it so special in my mind ...that other hubbers voted for me. To think they would even consider voting for me, is a blessing in and of itself.

      I pray all is well with you precious heart, for you deserve the best this life has to offer.

      (((Hugs)) and love to you,

      I like these HUG tributes of yours, Faith! We readers are introduced to the most interesting people that some of us may not have otherwise encountered. Anyone with at least 5 Editor's Choice hubs is certainly worth reading and learning from.

      The other thing these HUG tribute hubs indicate is that the spirit of aloha is alive and well here in the HubPages community. As an ambassador of goodwill and a sincerely other-centered human being, you, my dear friend, Faith Reaper, set the gold standard for...

      Love and respect!
