I was sitting in church one day, and during the invitation God clearly told me to do three things. He told me to go into ministry work with children and to write a book. I was so surprised by all this I did not even argue. I just told God okay. I immediately studied to be a lay speaker at our church, started working in the Epiphany ministries earnestly (a three-day weekend to show God’s love to teenagers in the juvenile correctional centers), and proceeded to write a book. I consulted with God often throughout this book to ensure it was what He wanted said. I was always told God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the called.
I recently took a course to become my husband’s care partner so he can do home hemodialysis. God carried me through my aversion to needles and blood. This gives my husband a better quality of life and makes it easier for him to be a pastor of a church. We live in the country with some senior rescue dogs, and in my free time I like to crochet, sew, quilt, and make jewelry. At this writing my husband and I have seven children and thirteen grandchildren.
