I was born and raised in Detroit, and have also lived in Ontario, Massachusetts, and now in the suburbs of Philadelphia. I am divorced, with four grown children, and retired. A few of my favorite things are classical music, reading, and cooking. I came to know the Lord at fifteen, and have been a believer for more than 60 years. Like most people, I have experienced many situations throughout my life which have challenged my faith and caused me to examine my relationship with God and those around me. Inevitably, I have found that my salvation, comfort and wisdom ultimately could only be found in the love, grace and mercy of God. After I retired from working at 70, I began to write as a way of working out various questions about my faith that had been in the back of my mind for many years. As I wrote, I was able to work many of these out with the Lord. It is my hope and prayer that in sharing these insights with others, it will be an encouragement to them, but I want to make it very clear that I am still on the journey myself. My hope is to glorify God through my writing and encourage and be supportive of those who are making the journey with me.
