I'm a Survivor !

Background Information

I am the 2nd child of dad, with a 3rd grade education, was a railroad worker constantly striving for better and retired a mother was a stay at home mom, always pleasing her parents, who were strong Holiness - Church of God, Independent....a grandmother who was perfectionistic in all ways....I walked the church aisle for forgiveness of my sins, as a child of 8 years old, but was not assured of any  Supernatural Intervention (Jesus)  in my life until I was 28 years old- many mistakes and believed lies for 20 years....Lies that I had to have my hair grow long, my dresses had to be a long length, no swimsuits, no shorts, no smoking, no drinking, no dancing, no, no, no with no nurturing or education about my sexuality-- basically what I had been taught was all about what I had to do to get God to accept me ! At 28 years old with 2 small children (my life) a 2nd marriage on the rocks, I was assured that God had saved me and I stepped up into His family....This became Truth to me when a lady, now my best friend of 38 years, took me through the Book of Romans and showed me what God had to say..... Today, 38 years later, I know it to be true -GRACE that is...God's Riches At Christ's Expense ! I received instruction from a Sunday School teacher, when my children were babies, who was intelligent, gentle, kind, and helped me see that "people skills" were very important in this life.....If I'd need to mention any other major influence, it would be my Bible, my children, and grandchildren.  I make an effort to read the Bible daily, have done numerous Bible studies, as well as Christian author titles, while searching for the Ultimate Truth and try to live by what I know now ---with many remaining faults....Somehow, reaching out to others, serving others always brings me great joy!

I am currently full-time Nanny (grandma) to my 5 and 2 yr. old baby grandsons. I've written a children's book for each of them and they are online...For more information about these, please feel free to contact me...One is "The Train Hunt", a real live experience of going to hunt for a train.....My days are full of taking care of these precious little boys ! I have learned (well almost) to take care of myself, too!
