Tell us a little about yourself. I'm 97 years old, a retired home economics teacher, former clown and puppeteer, and I've been writing for seventeen years: a memoir "The Uncommon Journey of an Ordinary Woman", a children's book "When Charlie Coyote Lost His Cool", and a coming-to-faith book "Bathtubs and Warm Water: The Genesis of Faith."
What was your motivation behind this project? I was thinking of how I became a Christian when my family was so dysfunctional. How did I happen to come to this point? I heard this message from Joel Osteen about "divine connections," so I wanted to find them in my own life and then to share my experiences of coming to faith with others.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope this book motivates people to check their lives, because I know that my sins have been forgiven and I want to encourage people to find their own forgiveness through faith in the Divine.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I came to truly believe. I could see that my life was entirely one miracle after another.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Joel Osteen is the one who gave me the first insight into the notion of Divine Connections, which started me on the path to salvation.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: When I first started this project, I didn't realize I was doing this for God, I thought I was doing it for myself. Now I realize that my whole life was planned. I went through the hills and valleys for a reason--to get me where I am today.
