Greetings Daughters of the King

Two Smiling Girls

I love this photo of my nieces. (See the castle in the background?) When I see this picture I think of the hopes and dreams I have for all Daughter’s of our God and King. I hope they find true joy and true love! I hope they find real peace, and realize… their high purpose.

What I share here is for the young ladies coming behind me on this journey of faith. Here I offer, counsel and encouragement, cautions and a challenge or two.

Ladies, you are God’s darlings before you are anyone else’s. No one loves you like He does. Follow Him and be blessed. That’s a promise!

“This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”   (Deut 30:19-20 NIV)

My African Journey: Introduction


After graduating from college, I signed a two year contract to teach 2nd grade at The American Embassy School of Lusaka, Zambia. Living in Africa was quite an adventure for me, seeing the animals, climbing a mountain, meeting a handsome guy…

While in Africa I kept a journal, which I tried to turn into a story. Not long ago I found myself in the attic rummaging around, looking for that story. As I began to read it, I couldn’t help myself. I found I had a soft spot for the young lady who lived it and wrote it (me). I will post the chapters here as they unfold.
