Hello. I’m so glad you stopped by.
I’ve been hanging out here at PotOfManna for a few years now. I love the image of God feeding his people daily in the wilderness (You can find the story in the Bible, Exodus 16). Not long ago I added the tagline: “The Care and Feeding of a Living Sacrifice” after leading a study on Romans 12. I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. (Romans 12:1)
So what will you find here at POM? Daily grace to grow your faith.
I’m a simple girl who majors in the practical. I see God everywhere and tend to share my “aha” moments. So the posts you find here will reflect those things.
I also read and review books. They say the best way to learn to write is to read. But I also like finding new authors whose biblical foundations feed my mind and heart with the right kind of stuff.
There may be a few posts about my grandkids and what I learn from their childlike perspective.
I have reached what is probably considered the second half of life, chronologically speaking, that is. That means I’ve been married for 39 years, have 2 grown daughters, and three adorable grandchildren.
I worked in my field of training, pastor/counselor, for over 20 years. I had to take a break, and during that time worked several very challenging jobs. But this isn’t just the second half of life for me, it’s also my second chance. I’m sort of living out my “do over” and seeking more diligently to do the things I know and live the things I believe, while staying open to growth and all of life’s new possibilities. It’s not always easy, but it’s certainly never boring.
The restoration I have experienced in the last few years has been an “exceedingly above and beyond” all I could ask or imagine. I am blessed to pastor the most loving congregation. I have connected with Word Weavers, International and have seen my writing opportunities increase significantly.
This my journey. I hope we’ll find joy together as we travel along.
