Sometimes your life takes a turn in a totally different direction. That is what happened to me. For years I worked as a customer service telephone rep for a health insurance company. I enjoyed helping people. Most were under health and financial pressures, and I was glad to be able to offer encouraging words and to attempt to resolve their issues easily; hoping to help make their day a little brighter. But I will admit after many years, I grew weary. One day sitting at my desk and feeling pretty burned out, I said a prayer, "Lord, when I no longer need to work here, I would like to do something fun.
Well, little did I know what my loving God thought would be fun for me and what He had planned. I always knew I could express myself better in writing than orally but I never had the desire or a plan to write books.
If you would like to know the whole story of how God worked in my life to change my direction and make me "an author" read "The Foreword" in I Thought You Had a Bigger Dream at www.readtheirstory.com.
From that experience, my horizons widened. I was asked to write the story of the Cole family. better known as The Voices of Glory, (5th place winners of America's Got Talent in 2009) which is now a work in progress. Also, on the schedule, is the memoir of Tina Panos, the wife of an international evangelist, who went around the world herself sharing the Good News.
So now I have come full circle, back to a little project I started for our grandchildren so they would understand the true meaning of Christmas. Our big God had his own big ideas and took my teaching outside our home and put it on the world-wide-web in the form of Melton Snow A Happy Heart Christmas.
All I can say is, I was open to serving the Lord through serving a friend, and God has blessed me mightily, above all I could ask or think. I am so pleased to be able to honor God through telling the stories of His children and how He did BIG things in their lives.
My husband, Ron and I live in Branson, Missouri, where we operate a business and serve as laborers for Christ through our local church.
John 15:8-11 defines my assignment and my reward; that God may be glorified and that my joy be full.
