  • Let's Get Better Acquainted

    I was a single mom who raised my son under very challenging circumstances. 

    The dynamics of my divorce, added to my very high-profile radio ministry, put a lot of stress on my 6 year old son; yet, God's unfailing grace saw us through.

    I am a thirty-year veteran of Christian radio and TV. After years of developing and writing projects for others, I retired early to enjoy my grandchildren and pursue my passion for writing about the Christian faith.

    My first book, Cotton Butterflies, is about my birth mother's teen pregnancy, my adoption, and how we met 28 years later. You can read excerpts and more at  www.cottonbutterflies.blogspot.com

    I am also a Libertarian. I am convinced God not only places us in wombs of His choice, but locations--thereby uniquely equipping us to influence others for Christ.

    However, we should express our faith and freedom in a fallen world as Jesus did--honoring the free will without applauding its defects.

    As a Libertarian, I believe in personal freedoms with responsibility. Central government should be small, constrained by  the Constitution, and serve the people as they engage their lives, liberties, and pursuits of happiness.

    Legislation should be minimal--formulated and enforced mostly on state and local levels in order to be fleshed out within community dynamics by the very people affected.

    I am in favor of a return to small farms, community markets, and cottage industries--"small democracies", as Jefferson noted.

    I believe the best education for children is one that follows a home or small group-based Jeffersonian concept of leadership development, as opposed to government-sponsored drills and mere memorization of facts.

    I invite you to read my other blogs linked on the side bar. I always enjoy getting your feedback and insights!
