Meet the Author

Really y’all I’m just another Samaritan woman seeking living water and pouring out where I see need for encouragement.   I am 48, mother to four girls ages 16-26, Gigi to the most handsome 2-year-old little boy, Fibromyalgia warrior, minister, writer, and a lifetime learner.

I am writing my first book, slowly but surely, six chapters in, as our blessed first love has called me to share His glory in my story. I feel lost in that familiar desert place, and thankful for the manna that is there miraculously every day. I am overcoming hour by hour the condemning voices of the enemy and learning to love myself. It has been an arduous journey.  This wordsmith journey, but so worth it.

I became a licensed minister in 2010.  However, I do not currently work in the ministry. I share Christ’s love through devotional blogging.   I have a degree in Church Ministry, was pursuing my degree in Christian Care and Counseling at Oral Roberts University, but now am pursuing Life Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming Master Practioner Certifications and a business license. I am a certified women’s biblical counselor through the Extraordinary Women’s program at Light University.   I am working on their Addiction and Recovery program now too.  Yes, I am a glutton for punishment with a wealth of life experiences with which I can minister comfort to others.

I’m a lover of a good book, writing, singing, and music, and my nemesis is the perpetual laundry pile.

Blessings to you and yours,

<3Melinda
