Friends describe her as a Cinderella with a gypsy flair. She describes herself as a Cinderella with a Scarecrow brain! She explains she is the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz, searching for her brain. At age 19, a bizarre car accident exposed her to carbon monoxide poisoning. The CO2 poisoning had the effect of a tornado, blowing her brain clean and leaving debris for her to piece together. Little was left of her recollections and operation of the simplest of things were difficult. The doctors, in 1972, informed her that she made medical history. They had never treated anyone with this level of carbon monoxide in their blood that had survived. There was really no tried and true treatment. The doctors couldn’t tell her parents if she would ever recover abilities or her memory. It would take time. How much no one knew.
Recently there was a question in a bible study class. She was asked for remembrances of being baptized. Since she could not recall being baptized, she told this astonishing, incredible account of her miraculous journey through Heaven and of conversations with Jesus. The bible study class were ecstatic upon hearing this recollection. The teacher encouraged her to write it down so others could share this experience. This enormous undertaking would prove difficult as her memories of English classes past were gone and even her basic handwriting skills had been damaged in the accident. With God’s help and her computer, she decided to make the attempt. The outcome was this true account of her journeys through Heaven and life. The struggles that she encountered became a revelation in faith and hope. Cindy hopes you will renew your spirit and become rebirthed, as she did. Appreciate the fresh start in life that was given freely through grace, perseverance and of course Love. This traveled road may resemble a fairytale, however she will assure you that fairy tales don’t always end like we think they should. She desires for you to see life differently and inspire you to embrace the treasures of life.
Cindy has two grown sons, three sisters, and one brother. She is an aunt, a great aunt, a wife, a friend, and a believer in JESUS. Being raised on a farm, in a small town in Texas, in the 50’s, 60’s and early 70’s, gave her a unique perspective towards nature and a way of life that is slowly disappearing. Cindy wishes that you join her in her quest to Be a Treasure, Earn a Treasure, Make a Treasure, Give a Treasure, Witness a Treasure and Embrace a Treasure. It is a way of life that will add many blessings to your family’s life as well as your own. You don’t want to be the one that is forgotten and left behind. No one likes to carry their own boots and saddle during life’s difficult journeys.

She currently lives on Cedar Creek Lake, near Dallas TX, where she transforms, mirrors, tables, crosses and chandeliers into beautiful forms of art through the use of driftwood. Her online shop has been recognized in several magazines, as well as on the internet. Whether it be with looking at life as the beholder of her home based business “Reclaimed Objects,” or perhaps through the eyes of Jesus, her love of nature is readily apparent. Cindy desires that you will discover your own heart’s desire. To look at life through the eyes of Jesus and nature. To recall the distant past of times and things gone by. Whether it be your own life or an unfulfilled dream. Upon reflection, Cindy hopes you will renew your spirit and become rebirthed, as she did. Appreciate the fresh start in life that was given freely through grace. Understand this to be a new beginning. Realize that we are not on this earth alone. There is something greater to our purpose than just following your own desires.
