Awards or achievements
All my awards (the ones that matter most) are waiting for me in heaven . . . guess I'll just have to wait till I get there to know what they are!

Marital status
Married

Children/grandchildren
Lots of cute big - little noisy boys . . Tyler 16, Joshua 14, Caleb 6, Gavin 3, Mason 2, Dylan 1, and then there is my sweet adorable Granddaughter Gwen 9 months

Published works
A few poems here and there. I have seen some on-line and I have had a lot of request for them to be used in church bulletins and newsletters.

Volunteer work
Right now, I help my daughter with her three boys two days a week. I have a lot of physical issues that keep me from doing too much outside of my home. When I was younger . . . I was president of the Make-A-Wish foundation for many years and headed the Sunday School department (ages 5-11) at my church. I am a volunteer at heart and miss the use of this gift.

Professional or Philanthropic associations (including religious affiliation)
I am a member in good standing (I pray) of the "Royal Family" and that keeps me quite busy.

Poetry writing experience
Been writing poetry for years, but the last five years or so I have been doing more and more of it. The Lord has used my physical down-time to be His spiritual up-time and my poetry reflects this special time God has made for us.

State or country in which the poet resides
Washington

Testimony of saving faith for Christians only
Since I was only 10 years old when I accept Jesus into my life . . . I really wasn't all too sure what that meant. And so as a young girl I did what any young girl would do . . . I strayed and returned and strayed and returned . . . and what I found out about all my straying and retuning over the years is that I need to rededicate my life to God every day.
Once I started to seriously follow in His footsteps my straying days were over. I am wise now to the tricks the "old wily" one is up to and know that my relationship with the Lord must be spot-on if I am to beat him at his game. I find that when I start my morning in prayer and His Word I am able to keep the compass of my soul heading towards that straight and narrow.
There is a secular song that I often think about . . . "If I Knew Then What I Know Now" . . . my path would have been much more pleasing to the Lord, but Halleluiah He loves it when the returner . . . returns for good!

About the Poet
Born into the Royal family when I was 10 years old and I am eagerly awaiting His Kingdom to come . . .

Colorfull lights

Sweets delight,

All around town.
