Dorene Lang is a Maine author who holds a degree in Social Services. Most of her working career has been spent with youth, with and without disabilities. Lang's "Journey" began when she, her husband Charles, and sons Charlie and Jacob lived with their pastor during a personal hardship. One of the highlights of living there for Dorene was the pear tree that was within view of the living room window, and the turkeys which sometimes surrounded it. Dorene credits her Lord, Jesus Christ for any success in her life.
