Thank you so much to my dear friend Suzanne for asking me to do this interview and for her belief in me.

About 18 years ago I began writing children’s short stories and poetry which were accepted for publication through a British publishing house.  The Lord had other plans though, and it didn’t proceed.

With time, He has led me through permitted trials, heartache and long-term illness and allowed the pain, the questions and the joy to overflow onto the page, bringing Him glory.

It is my heart’s desire, that these posts, recorded songs, and my books will bring special moments to the little ones and comfort for anyone hurting, those crying unseen tears, anyone needing the Saviour …. and we all do! (adapted from back cover of “Fragrance from the Spring”.)

As of 1st July, 2013 I am now offering personalized poems. Please see the page link at top of second column for details.

Thank you and may you be blessed as you read these posts.

To God be the glory.

    1. Anne … firstly oh how beautiful that a lovely lady named Anne has blessed me so on this day, Mother’s Day … my dearest Mother (now six years gone) called herself Anne (with an ‘e’:-)) even though not her birth name. Secondly, I don’t know quite what to say about your most precious comment, except you had me fighting back tears … thank you from the bottom of my heart and I hope you don’t mind that I corrected my name.

    Nice reading about you

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Be in touch. Browse through the category sections, I feel you may find something of your interest.


  5. It is through suffering that our gift of faith is put to the test and may truly shine, manifesting our love for Christ through many trials and tribulations. If we endure such with faith, hope and above all love, then we become by grace what God is in essence, love. Thus, we become martyrs (witnesses) for Christ and give glory to God, through the gift of The Holy Spirit.
    God bless you in every way
