I am a Christian, wife, mother, and grandmother, and I live in Ontario, Canada with my husband, seven children, and 17 grandchildren. I’m a believer and follower of Christ Jesus, and my incentive and purpose in life are to tell people about Jesus and ensure they have received His salvation. My message to the world is this, “God loves you and is about to pour His wrath upon this world but He doesn’t want you to suffer through it, and the only escape is to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.”
God sent His Son to die on the cross and take all of our sins upon Himself and suffer the punishment for them to redeem us to God, our Father and was raised from the grave to give us eternal life. Now, Jesus is getting ready to call all believers Home, and I want to do all I can to help others be ready! It’s my prayer that the inspirational messages in this blog will encourage readers to see that they need Jesus, and not only that, but they need to receive Him as their Savior NOW while there’s still time!
I was a stay-home mom and Sunday school teacher until my youngest child was in high school, and then I returned to college, graduated with several diplomas, and pursued a legal career in the courthouse. Unfortunately, that ended seven years later when I sustained injuries to my back and legs in a car accident. Knowing that I would never be able to do physical work again, I took several online college courses and engaged in a career as a writer and author. My intention was to write books for teens and adults that were exciting but did not contain any profanity, sexual content, or insolence. After I’d written and published three books, including one adult suspense/thriller, I felt I was on my way to becoming the author I’d always dreamed of being.
However, the direction of that career changed sooner than planned when I was diagnosed with terminal cancer in July 2011 and given only a few months to live. Being a woman of faith, I knew I had to dig deep into the Word and get to know Jesus and His promises for me. Through my studies, I developed a personal relationship with Jesus, and that opened up a whole new world for me. He fought the cancer battle for me; it was long and not kind, but through Him, I beat cancer! All praise to God!
During that battle, I studied the Bible diligently and kept notes and messages that I received from the Lord through His Word. When I was healed, I formatted those messages into a book called, Let Faith Arise. My hope is that people will read this book and be encouraged to really learn about Jesus so they can know Him—not so they can get things from Him, but so they can truly know that He is the Son of God who loves them, and that’s He’s returning soon. I want people to learn what faith is, why they need it, and how to use it to live the way God wants them to live and be ready for when He returns.
I surround myself continually with worship music because it brings me into the presence of God and gives me peace. Reading the Bible and praying are part of my daily routine, and being a watchman (woman) on the wall has become my mission.
I’m the author of the young adult adventure series Sarah Davies, which has four books published to date; they include Mudslide, Firestorm, Whiteout, and Raging Waters. These outdoor adventures are fast-paced and action-packed, void of profanity, insolence, and sexual content, and are directed toward teens and young adults. I’ve also written one adult thriller, Web Secrets, packed with suspense and adventure but free of profanity, insolence, and sexual content.
My writing direction has shifted to inspirational, and to date, I have 18 books published. These include a series for youth and teens called The Crown Series, a collection of six stories on Bible heroes based on facts with some imagination added to make them fun and easy to read. Two of my favorites are One Glorious Night and The Rising Son, which depict the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus as told by those who knew Him. The other books include Let Faith Arise, No Compromise, The Boy Who Would be King, God’s Calling—it’s for You, ABC’s for Believers, Jesus Saves, MY God is Awesome, Rejoice, Your Life Matters, and Four Promises of God.
Besides being the copy editor on several books for various authors, I’ve also been the ghostwriter for two books and co-author of seven other book publications.
I hold college diplomas in Business & Administration, Common Law, and Children’s and Adult Literature, and have earned a legal certificate as a Canadian Court Reporter. Today, I’m doing what I’ve enjoyed doing since my first public writing award when I was 12 years old, and that is writing—and even more than that, I’m writing for God!
