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.

I have been trying to achieve greatness

I am attempting to get my book Branches re-published but need to make additional income to attain that goal. So I got ahold of some sites by which I can make some income from other things I have written. I also have an anthology of poetry written by a class I taught, and an autobiography of one of my students that I am getting some royalties on.

This third book is a research treatment on pedophilia, which I wrote earlier this year, to try to figure out why these guys who do these things are not treated by a psychiatrist, they are just allowed to be the way they are. I am very grateful that most states now require that sex offenders register and have to sign in every month, but what about the ones who are not caught?

I know that I will not get a lot of money off of these things, and I need a lot of money to have this done. I will just keep writing and trying to find ways to increase my funding.

I should look at the book I wrote first, My Life as a Doormat, and see if I can publish that, but in a more accessible format for now. That one is pretty much in a format that I can just do what I did with the pedophilia one. Maybe it will work. I will try it, but for now there is something I need to help my husband with, and so I bid you adieu for now.
