I don’t like this About Page. I’m quiet and would rather listen to you talk. So after this, please tell me about yourself!
I Always Said I would never work with children. I have taught Sunday School since I was 17, directed two children’s clubs, tell Children’s stories at church, help in the nursery, and cuddle the newborns every chance I get.
I Always Said I would never marry a farmer. We just finished our 30th harvest. And it was a bountiful crop. The serenity of a simple bonfire at our Saskatchewan farm still captures my heart (and so does my husband, Kel!).
I Always Wanted Six Children, got four, and I’m kinda glad about that. They’ve taught me so much about myself, about Jesus, life and lego, and they do try to teach me about technology.
Oh, and the world’s cutest grandson has been taken. He’s ours.
And now we have the sweetest granddaughter too!
I always said I would NEVER speak in public. The first time I stayed home from school with a “cold”. The second time I asked the teacher so many questions in class there wasn’t time for me to do my speech. I could delay it no longer. After being sick to my stomach for days, and after several nights of dreaming that it was over, and trembling from head to toe, I took my place at the front of the class and had the surprise of my life . . . I loved it!
I love teaching. I teach English as an Additional Language (EAL) to many wonderful students
from all around the world.
I enjoy speaking – church, women’s groups, seniors, children, workshops, and more.
And I enjoy teaching writer’s workshops.
I Always Wanted To Write. When I finally got my first gig for the paper, I was to interview a 97 year old gal. Ten minutes into the interview she fell asleep.
I have been privileged to write for:
My local paper, The Assiniboia Times
Chicken Soup for the Soul
St. Peter’s Messenger
Living Light News
Blog contributor for the Professional Writer’s Blog at www.inscribe.org
and The Word Guild
Acquisitions Editor with a great editorial team for Fellowscript, a Writer’s Magazine for Christians who write.
My favourite subject to write or teach is God’s Word and His Amazing, Giving, Grace.

What did you always want to do? And what did you end up doing?
