No need to doubt - God really does love you. Check out this post by Author Debra L. Butterfield.
Do you ever doubt that God loves you? Maybe God doesn't want you to have even the tiniest inkling of doubt.

During the last two weeks, three people at separate times have told me, “You are a treasure.” I know this is a compliment and I truly appreciate the sentiment. At the same time, I am a bit nonplussed to be described as such. When I think of treasure, my…

Author of "The Unraveling of Reverend G"
Introduction
I grew up on a farm in Oklahoma and yes, it's true that you can't take the country out of the girl. Currently, I live in the heartland of Kansas where I cheer for the Jayhawks.

As a writer, I'm interested in helping caregivers, particularly those who deal with Alzheimers and dementia. These diseases have affected our family in tragic ways and I write about them using the genre of fiction.

"The Unraveling of Reverend G" is the story of a woman minister who is diagnosed with Alzheimers. Rev G checks into Cove Creek Assisted Living where she meets Bert, Roxie and Gabriel - the cat with a special gift. The book is available on Amazon and from my publisher, Cross River Media.
Bragging rights
Graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University, served as a missionary and I have one incredible son.
