New Beginnings

In this blog, I am documenting my life. I have come full circle, from trying to become a child of God to actually becoming one. It took me many years of self-deception and searching for something I could not describe to finally find Christ.

I write research articles, have done so since 1994.  I married my best friend in 2012, and we are in it for the long haul.  I have four children and five grandchildren.  My expertise is in teaching Sunday School.  I love listening to them memorize verses, and telling them Bible stories.  You can see my current endeavors at, and on Facebook at Yucaipa Writer's Group.

My life has taken a new turn.

In December of 2007, I broke my foot. Two weeks later, my husband of nine years walked out of my life, and divorced me. I could not go to work, nor could I get money to survive. My church family had to pay my rent for four months. They also had to keep me in groceries for awhile. However, through all of this, I kept going. My foot healed. However, I still did not have any money, for my retirement account was too large for me to be eligible for any outside means of support. So, having nothing to lilve on, I had to retire five years before I had planned to do so. I am now rich spiritually, but my finances still need some help once in a while. But I am almost out of the crisis.

It has made me stronger. I can fight on my own terms. I no longer have to take care of a mentally ill person who does not care about me, only himself. He has five siblings to do that for him, and I hope that they like it, because they are going to have to do it for a long time. I am very strong, and I don't need them, so let them have their boyfriends, their affairs, and let his brother have the knowledge on his conscience that he took pictures of his illegitimate son while he had no clothes on, and gave it as a Christmas gift to the whole family. That is what I am without now.

I look forward to a positive life from now on.

Feel free to comment on this if you want to. Sometimes I need feedback. But I will not be deterred. I am my own person now.
