I call myself the ABC girl’ because I’ve survived the alphabet biggies of abuse, bulimia, and cancer.
Right now I am working my way through the D’s that is recovering from the loss of my husband a few months ago.
I expect to conquer the entire alphabet in my life time with the help of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
I am a somewhat average gal, not too tall, not too round, not too old or too young. I am not too outgoing, yet I am definitely not an introvert.
I started to write seriously when I learned that journaling could help a person overcome sexual abuse. I thought that is for me! Eventually I started publishing the devotions that fill my journals.
Some of those devotionals became the book, Heartfelt Devotionals-366 devotions for common sense living.
My devotionals appear regularly at http://everydaychristian.com / and http://daily.presbycan.ca /
I tend to write about what is happening in my life. Constant dieting produced the Bible Study, God, Gluttony & You, as well as several health related cookbooks.
When Ron passed, I wrote a picture/story book for grieving children, called The Big Red Chair (2011).
Meeting Myself-Snippets from a Binging and Bulging Mind (Word Alive Press) is the newest release. As you might expect from the title, it’s the painful, though often funny story of my recovery from abuse and bulimia. I’m honoured that both Michael Bull Roberts and Nikki Rosen read and endorsed it.
You might have guessed by now that my next book will be about losing my Honey. I guess you could say that writing saved my life. Oh, I know that without Jesus and my husband Ron, (who was my ‘Jesus with skin’) I’d have sunk. But writing gives me a place to look at my life and recognize how far I’ve come.
