Hello everyone new here.

I am new here, and eager to get to know fellow Christian writers. To introduce myself, I am a retired civilian employee a law enforcement agency in Florida where I live. Graduated from Liberty University with a BS in Biblical Studies and Theology in May of last year. One can never be too old to go after their dream of a degree, as some of my fellow classmates were ten to twenty years older than myself.

My husband of nearly 33 years and I are active in a very small church, the oldest member is 94 the youngest is 57. I hope to find lively discussions to learn what I can about writing.

Looking forward to many discussions.

    That's awesome! I went to college late too. Waited until the kiddos got older. I look forward to seeing some of your writing. Welcome  =)

    Hi Southern Lady, and welcome. You aren't as far south as I am (Down Under) but don't hold that against me :)

    Yup Down Under would be getting very southern.

    Hi Stmann,

    I like to write Christian fiction, it started while I was taking classes at Liberty. I do have stuff to share but I am very shy about doing so. 
    The Father placed me in positions at my church I would never have asked for. It isn't much the church clerk, and later the treasurer. The church is very small and getting smaller. I fear we will soon looser a couple of older members. I am next to the youngest, the youngest is 57. A few years ago, if someone told me what positions I would have at church I would have told them they must be well past desperate. Okay, they are. Here I am doing the things I feared doing the most. Second after standing before large crowds of 3 or more people giving a speech.

    Well hello there SouthernLady.  Glad you are with us and looking forward to reading whatever you write.  I write a little bit of everything but mostly inspirational poetry.  I do whatever God tells me to so I can do my best to glorify Him.  I have published a couple of books and know the traps you can find yourself in when self publishing.  I am very opinionated and sometimes it puts people off.  I too went to get my education later as in I got my associates degree at the age of 70.  Anyway that's my story and I hope to be as good as some of the writers on here some day.  I live in the great state of Oklahoma and sometimes write in what I call Oklahomaeze.  Good luck!!
