A new devotion - Jesus Great Sacrifice
I began a new life when I married. A sinner became a pastors’ wife. I lived in fear of the church members finding out my “true identity”. As in everything in my life, I wanted to be perfect. Would they judge me for my past? I...

Earl would tell you how angry I was when we were introduced. Sitting at the nurses’ station one afternoon I saw him. Tall with dark wavy hair and wearing a blue lab coat, he was walking away down the hall. I leaned toward the nurse I was working with and…

My Cross. Stolen and irreplaceable. The empty cross can never be taken from me. My faith stands firm.
I found an old jewelry box at a yard sale years ago. It lay open with baubles and chains draped over it like a pirate’s treasure chest. While looking through the booty I spotted a shining gold cross. I gently untangled its da...

Story
Tagline
Christian Writer and Lay Minister
Introduction

Raised in a dysfunctional family, I began a career in nursing at eighteen. I met Jesus ten years later. It was difficult to deal with my past until I accepted fully the forgiveness Jesus supplied and I forgave myself. God sent a wonderful man, Earl Dickerson, to love me. On January 1, 1991, an automobile accident challenged Earl to a decision—life or death for me? He chose life.

I have the most beautiful daughter and the most loving husband and they are my best friends!
