Committed to a life of purpose.     

Learning to live abundantly.

Embracing creativity.


Delighting in the comforts of home and family.

Determining not to settle only for how things are, but how they could be.

Writing is part of who I am, so I trust In God who gave the gift to show me how I can serve Him through it. That is my life…one word at a time.

Psalm 89:11a

“Teach me your way , O Lord, and I will walk in your truth”

  1. After almost a quarter of a century of friendship (sorry does that give away our age???) I can’t believe that I’m just now being introduced to your blog……it’s great! It also helps to know the story behind the writer!

  2. Congrats on your progress! I’m inspired by your view of the state I’ve lived in for 39 years! Please keep it coming…

  3. I love this! I miss you so much and this gives me chance to keep up with you even when life gets in the way of our friendship.

  4. Hi Christa,

    I just heard about you yesterday afternoon from a mutal friend from Madison Park. (Di V.) I look forward to delving more into your intersts, skills, suggestions, etc.

    My challenge is to get the creative thoughts from my brain down to my hand and pen. (Microsoft Word)

    While I believe I have a God-given talent of “communication” I really desire to fulfill His will in my life.

    Your web site has proven to be “fresh beginnings”.

    Please continue to write on your blog!! The Lord has truly blessed us with you and your family as our friends! He loves you and I do, too!

  7. I am so glad that you are a part of my life now and a part of WRC’s life. 🙂 You’re an amazing writer. What a gift God has give you. I have the soul of a writer and LOVE it, but don’t know how to begin. Maybe God brought you into my life for several reasons. LOL
