I started writing 15 years ago as the direct result of a first spiritual experience that opened my eyes to the Lord’s voice and presence. The experience was the first of many other experiences to occur. Not only did it awaken the writing of spiritual poetry, but also drew me to the Bible, to Christianity and to Christian counseling, wanting to help others.
By His grace, I am the author of 6 books of poetry… 3 self published and 3 published by Publish America. Most of the poetry has spiritual and nature themes, and most all are written in formal verse. After writing for awhile, I realized I am an instrument of the Lord’s, getting His Word out into the world, helping others, and drawing others to Him. I praise the Lord every day for His guidance in every aspect of my life. I live in Spring Valley, Illinois with my husband, Jim. We have two grown children and a precious 8 year old granddaughter, Rayghan Jayne, whom we love to spend time with. To all who read this, God bless and God’s best to you and yours in your life.
I Am The Vine!

“I am the vine”…abide in me
and on each branch, of yours, you’ll see
how fruit abounds in hope and strength,
in fertile grounds to go the length.
Yes Jesus said, “I am the vine!”
He gives the bread, He serves the wine.
Rely on Him for everything!
Each branch, He’ll trim, each fruit will sing.
He wants to be your living source,
for you to see you have a course.
Abide in Him, His love entwines,
and you shall live! He is the Vine!
“I am the vine, and you are the branches.
If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit;
apart from me, you can do nothing.”
