Hello and welcome to my site! On this page I’ll share some of my interests and some facts about me. I’m glad to meet you, and I hope you find refreshment here.



Nestled near the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in upstate South Carolina is a log house on a hill. It’s been our home for over 20 years after living in various parts of the United States. I’ve been married to Steve for over 46 years and we raised 7 children. We now have 14 grandchildren  – 8 boys and 6 girls!

Our home on the hill




A grandmother, but young at heart, I am always finding more creative interests.

I love photographing clouds, trees, flowers, really all kinds of things found in nature. Sometimes I overlay them with poetry or quotes.

 Magnetic Poetry using the online kit is a fun activity for me, and sometimes I overlay the poems on photographs.

Drawing and watercolor painting are also activities I enjoy a lot.

One of my favorite activities is making collages in my art journal. Sometimes I overlay them with scriptures.

Crocheting is another favorite creative interest of mine.


Watching musicals, old and new, is also something I enjoy. Three Little Words, The Five Pennies, Singin’ In the Rain, Newsies, August Rush, The Sound of Music, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers are just a few. I couldn’t possibly name them all.


Playing the piano has been an interest of mine since I was a child. 

My favorite thing is to take the hymnbook and play, arranging as I go depending on what I am feeling at the time. Playing for a church service inspires me most. When I hear the people sing, it really moves me and I let my fingers take over. Here is one of my favorite hymns – “Great is Thy Faithfulness” played on my piano that need some tuning and has a squeaky pedal, but the music still comes through.



More interests include writing poetry and reading it. 

Here is a recording of an older poem I wrote called Life is a Mystery:





I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I praise Him, because He is the one who gives me strength to do what I do.


My goal in life is to demonstrate the existence and love of God through my words and actions. Therefore, I want to be the best wife, mother, grandmother, and friend that I can possibly be.


My purpose for the blog is to share what is on my heart at any given time. I hope to encourage, entertain and inspire others while bringing glory to God.
