About Me

“There are only two kinds of people in the end,” C.S. Lewis says: “Those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, ‘Thy will be done’.”

I am amazed at God’s love…that He takes us back with all our broken pieces.  That he loved us so much he sent His Son to face rejection and pain in our place. Not only does he redeem and restore us, but He turns us loose in the world for His glory, imperfect as we are.  As Isaac Watts says, “Were the whole realm of nature mine, that were a present far too small!  Love so amazing, so divine demands my soul, my life, my all.”

I started my life as a writer by telling Terry, Larry, and Gary stories to my older brother as we weeded our parents’ strawberry patch.

In 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013, I published the four books you see at the bottom of this screen.  You see me on the right side of the screen in 2010, at a book signing for my first book (photo credit to Melanie Gingerich).

Last year, 2014 was the first year in five years that I published no books. I did attend several writers’ conferences, which I hope to keep up in the coming years.  I also got serious with my blog.

Below, is the photo story (created by my sister) of my family, all of whom still live in Wisconsin where I grew up.  In the last five years, we lost our mother to breast cancer and expanded by eight new nieces and nephews, including two sets of twin boys.

For the rest of “About Me”, stay tuned for the memoir I am writing and re-writing.
