Tell us a little about yourself. I'm the mother of Josh, 25, Daniel, 23, and Ben, 20 and the wife of David for 29 years. I had been a little girl who never even liked dirt under her fingernails and yet the Lord BLESSED me (I'm sure He was answering my husband's prayers) with three little sons. So you can see that there was LOTS of on-th-job training!
What was your motivation behind this project? My motivation? Oh, I've been writing my family's life story for years. In fact, I've been sharing it in our local newspaper by way of a monthly religion column. I knew the Lord was teaching me through everyday life. I knew that He was calling me to serve Him by sharing those lessons. I just needed one of those rowdy little boys that I raised to motivate me to compile those columns into a book. Believe me, one of them gave me a good "talking to." Now there really is a book.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? It is my prayer that people will be blessed and encouraged by my words. They're really not my words, though. I'm just the Lord's instrument, sharing the lessons that he has taught me along the way.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? You know, I teach Sunday School every Sunday. I play the piano and help with Vacation Bible School. But to think that the Lord could use me to share His word with people I don't know, people I will never even meet, now that's a miracle. You better believe, that changes a person. It humbles me when I think about the awesomeness, the power of our great God.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? There are so many Godly women who have influences me. I hesitate to even name them because I don't want to leave anyone out. But definitely, my mother. She is the strongest, most faithful woman I know. My grandmothers, my aunts, sister, my friends. I wish I could name them all. And I can't forget the ladies who endorsed my book, Marion Bond West and Donna Labonte. What powerful Christian mothers. I am so blessed by the Godly influence of all these and many more. And of course, my fellows, David, Josh, Daniel, and Ben. And Preacher Ben. I can't forget Preacher Ben.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: If one person is led to the Lord through a lesson that the He has given me to share, I will be eternally grateful. I'd love to hear from you. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
