Tell us a little about yourself. I am currently majoring in Rhetoric/Writing with a minor in Political Science. I have been in the nursing profession in long-term care for twenty years. I enjoy my family, studies, and writing.
What was your motivation behind this project? I would say this was the turning point in my life. I would describe it as the turning point in pursuing my potential. Ultimately, my professor, Mrs. Noble was the true motivation. This memoir is in her memory and I want to keep her memory alive many years to come through my memoir.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope people will see how God moves in our lives in unusual ways. This memoir is designed for a versatile audience. For example, it may help some deal with grief, appreciate people and not take brief encounters with them for granted. Some readers may enjoy the professor/student relationship, others the Christian perspective, and because the storyline is about a research project on the Cold War during the Reagan/Gorbachev years - another audience may read it for political/historical content.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Gloria Noble had a mighty profound impact on my life. I had struggled with speech most my life, and Mrs. Noble gave me the encouragement to pursue a writing degree. This memoir contains details that profoundly reflect how God puts special people in our lives for a reason. God puts people on our paths daily. However, there may be a once in a lifetime opportunity He puts two people on each other's paths at a moment in time unlike anything I've experienced before. Gloria a Student's Memoir of Intended Paths reveals that unforgettable encounter.
