Welcome to my online home. A precious space for us to meet together. I am so happy that you are here, and I look forward to getting to know you. First, I am a Christian writer, blogger, poet, make-up artist, and sometimes singer. For the last seven years, I have been based in Georgia, where my family traded in the palm trees of Los Angeles for the woods, quiet, and deer.
“God’s Globe”, is a collection of devotions, prayers, stories, poems, photographs & other inspirations exploring the love of Jesus, family, nature, and more! I am hoping that this page will prove to be entertaining, and informative and that it will inspire us all “to stir up one another to love and good works”.
I share faith, spiritual growth, and life stories of marriage, family & friends, including some nitty-gritty struggles like weight, body image, and health navigating the seasons of life. Also, you’ll find resources, restaurants, travel, books, and media reviews here. I also pop in reliable skincare & makeup advice, tips, and recipes.
- Faith – a woman’s faith is her crowning beauty – faith stories & self-growth
- Spiritual growth – Talking & walking with God, prayer & bible study
- Life – marriage, family, friends, and Beauty & Wellness
- Beauty is not overdone – it is gentle and pure.
- Beauty comes from inside when the heart is full of kindness and joy.
Your past is your testimony –
Due to childhood trauma, I turned away from the church at sixteen years of age. Thankfully, God reached down and pulled me back, dipping me in His glorious mercy. Since I am in love with Jesus telling whoever, I can about His healing, love, joy, and peace. My writing reflects how I was before Jesus and how I am now. Perhaps coming to our Savior in my adult years gives me a unique perspective on before and after.
In 8th grade, I took a creative writing class and that opened my eyes to writing. Soon I was penning poems to Jesus and journaling. Then in college as a Theater Arts Major, I explored playwriting. My passion for poetry brought me to music and songwriting.
During the 1980s, in Los Angeles, California, I wrote for the L.A. Weekly as a Stylist Writer, Music Interviewer, and Live Band Reviewer. By the 1990’s I was Staff Editor at Fizz Magazine, writing a monthly column, and editing teen and adult submissions for poetry and prose. In 2007 I was the Beauty Editor for one of the first online magazines. My writing continued into articles for my Local 706 Make-up and Hairstylist’s guild’s magazine “The Artisan,” writing on film, television, and theater projects.
Once you get to know me, you’ll find I have many stories, and only by the grace of God am I here to testify. For instance, I was in one of the first girl punk bands, later joining a folk group with a write-up in People Magazine. Also, for 30 years, I have worked as a make-up artist for film and television with many a story to tell.
What do I love to do?
I love journaling and Bible study with a good cup of tea, worship, singing, and walking in nature. But my favorite thing is being a wife and sharing my life with my husband, Christian guitarist-composer Don Rutherford.
Life is a remarkable journey when we are on board with God!
