Beginning my new blog

This is my first post on my first blog! My good friend Dorothy and my cousin Traci have been instrumental in helping me to get it started. In it, I want always to give glory to God and shine a beacon of light to others for Him!
At the insistence of my husband Keith, I decided to begin writing my stories down. I have always been a storyteller. My relatives all said that I told my dreams. Maybe I did, but a good story just cannot stay boxed away in someone's memory! I love to tell stories, my students love to hear stories, my children love to hear stories, so I am writing them down.
I am dedicating this, my new blog, to my husband Keith, my children, my parents, my good friend Dorothy, and my good friend Kim Sawyer, who saw enough in me to give me a chance to hone the craft of writing. Without her, I would never have taken the first step on this journey! Blessings to you in the new year!
