About me

Industry Education
Occupation Teacher/Pastor/Psychologist
Location United States
Introduction I'm a fellow traveller on this planet, bent on making a difference in the lives I touch. Sometimes I teach: Sra. Frizzle. Sometimes I cook: Mexibilly Cuisine. Sometimes I write: Color Me Ozark. Sometimes I photograph: PJ's Life, Light and Lens. Sometimes I share life experiences: Bits and Pieces. I was a living liver donor, December 29, 2005. Then I was diagnosed with breast cancer August 6, 2006. (It still takes my breath away to write that!) After a left radical mastectomy and a year of chemotherapy I was declared cancer-free. What a roller coaster ride! From healthy-as-a-horse liver donor to a battle with cancer, all in the space of a few months! Sometimes I counsel: Beauty for Ashes. I've come to realize that the call of God on my life includes the task of sharing with others those dark moments, those difficult times at the end of human strength when God's Grace and Mercy has carried me through. That same Grace and Mercy is availble to YOU...whatever path you may be on, whatever valley you may be crossing. God is with you. ************ I can be contacted through: www.jccelgin.org **** Y abri un blog en Espanol. Anicos y piezas.
