In the beginning.....

I cannot say this is something I would have found myself blogging or writing about. This surely isn't or wasn't in my grand plan of life. But today, a transformed and changed woman, as someone who didn't know where life was taking her, as someone with a passion for writing and a new passion for the One who gave me the passion I am sharing with anyone reading the journey from desperate inmate to evangelizing lay minister as it were.

On January 29th, 2007 I was arrested for theft. I was a middle aged, white, professional with two children; one still living at home, one out on his own. I was, as we all are, underpaid, overworked and flat out tired. I made a spontaneous, life changing decision. On the outside, it looked devastating. On the inside, with the help of our Lord, it became the sole defining moment of my life.

This is that story and the story that continues.


  1. I had no idea you had such writing talent. I can't wait to see how God blesses you for sharing your heart with others..

  2. It has always been "told" that the Lord works in mysterious ways, and it has only been "heard" by those that are truly listening. Your writings may prove to be the medium in which many others will learn the transformation from communication to understanding; as you have discovered it to be. Today could be the first day of the rest of someones life, if they are "Listening". Give them something to hear!


Books worth a look
