I am a God revering, born-again Christian. For those of you who don’t know exactly what that means, this is it: Taught to believe in God and Jesus at an early age, I had a head knowledge of the Father and the Son. When I was 39 years old I met Christ and came to know Him in a personal way. Because I searched for Him and was truly sorry for my sins, He revealed Himself to me, assuring me that He not only loved me but that He had died for me. His death paid for my sins. The Holy Spirit took up residence in my heart–that Sacred Fire that is a piece of God Himself, brought to us by faith in Jesus. I am wrapped up in love with my God.
Now for the rest: Reared on a 670 acre rice farm in South Louisiana; lost my mother around age 2; my brilliant father, a self-made man, married a wonderful lady who became the only mother I remember; I married right out of high school; had six children, two boys, two girls, two boys, all fairly close together; divorced my husband when our baby boy was 9 months old; enrolled in college and earned a degree in education, majoring in Speech, minoring in English; taught high school for two years then became a mental health and substance abuse counselor–and no, the kids did not drive me crazy and then to drink! After retirement I wrote a book about my hometown to help celebrate our centennial, and designed programs for parish schools centered around art. The book, Oberlin:The First 100 Years, is full of history of the town and area and touching stories of the people of south Louisiana.
My interests are my family–11 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, church, politics, history, painting, drawing, art design, writing, friends, my dogs and civic projects.
