Introducing Footnotes 2 Stories

Come alive through reading, writing and creativity.

Reading nourishes our souls and affirms our identity as human beings.

Writing reflects universal truths when language promotes the safe transfer of ideas.

Creativity reflects the image of our Creator.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, how much more valuable is a thousand words when used to tell a good story?

Everything I have learned and know about life is only a footnote to the BIG story of human history.

Most of my adult life I have studied the Bible. The Bible keeps me tethered to the Truth. Jesus said, “Thy word is truth.”

The Bible comes embedded with stories. Great stories. Surprising stories. True stories. Nothing connects people to the fundamental truths of being human better than story.

My story includes being a wife to my husband James, mother to 4 grown children who we raised in a small town in the Texas Panhandle. 

After many years spent in Bible Study Fellowship (BSF), 9 years as a Teaching Leader, a move to Dallas led this empty-nester to attend Dallas Theological Seminary where I earned a Master’s in Media and Communication.

Next to the Bible, I have read a ton of books that have helped me make sense of my story.

Still it’s true that the best books and movies tell great stories. And I have seen countless movies because books and movies compress stories, like a footnote.

Stories make our lives meaningful and help us make sense of our lives.

I invite you to visit here, consider some of the books and movies and stories I can share that have made a difference in my life. Maybe you will trust me with your story.
