East Texas Pearls

Wisdom from a mother, teacher, and Christ follower…

 

I am a Christian wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, prayer warrior, ordained minister, and passionate God chaser. I want to walk in my destiny in Christ and want to see people healed, delivered, and set free!

While teaching at a private school I saw an ad for a columnist in the local paper so I applied. While initially it was to be a teacher column, I kept being drawn to write more about my relationship with God and how it may be applied to others’ lives. I think I only wrote one teacher column.

After years of writing I felt led to share these stories with a larger audience. My prayer is that those reading these find comfort and hope. May God bless you and yours!
