About the author (2011)

At 67 years of age there has developed a storehouse of glorious victories, trials and tribulations that demand sharing that others may come to know they are not alone in their walk. Learning to sit at the feet of the Master (Jesus) and to be taught by God's Spirit defines the lifetime of experiences related in "And I Held Her Hand". My perception of situations, circumstances and challenges had to be made subject to God's ways through trust, faith and obedience. Through this process He revealed to me His desire that none should perish. He also revealed His truth that sets us free to follow Him. From the time I received a call to serve the Lord at the age of 14 and accepted it, His unseen hand constantly interacted with me. God never forsook me nor did He turn away from me. I would find myself being guided to a proper walk in the light even when I had caused myself to become shrouded in darkness. Learning to recognize God's hand moving on my behalf, asking for forgiveness when necessary and thanking Him for being my God brought an increase in who I was as a person. I found my way through loneliness to a beautiful relationship with Him and the woman that he blessed me with for 38 years. That intimate relationship continues today and is attested to in this testimony of His love for all who will come to Him. I now reside in Texas raising three grandchildren. Early retirement has addressed the present situation in my life. I continue to heal from the sorrow and loneliness that accompany the loss of a loved one. God's healing presence is nurturing my spirit, comforting my soul and strengthening my body.
