I am a born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home.
I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.
I love to write poetry, inspirational articles and devotionals.
I published my first book in 2011.  It is a devotional-journal titled “54 Spiritual Blessings in Christ”
I have since published two of my original poetry chapbooks and two books for my ministry.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my poetry.

  1. Hello!
    Thank you for following my blog. I know how many interesting blogs are out there and feel honored that you picked mine to follow. I hope my stories entertain and inform and my photos bring you joy and wonderment.
    I travel mostly local but try to always find interesting places. I have lived in several different places and dig through my archives of photos to bring glimpses into places I have been. Sometimes I post a recipe because food tells a lot about culture.
    I am not a professional photographer, so my photos are sometimes a little fuzzy and there are telephone poles and wires and other things along with what I was photographing. The older photos are 35mm, the newer are point and shoot digital and a few are Samsung Smartphone.
    I am new to blogging so if you have any advice or critique please drop me a comment.
    Thank you again for following and to quote Mark Twain: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” – Mark Twain

    1. You are welcome! I enjoy following fellow bloggers and photographers. We all have something to say and share. My favorite part of the day is when I can sit down and browse through my WP Reader to enjoy the beautiful photographs, poetry and stories of those I follow here on WordPress.

  2. Hi Leona — you have a beautiful blog, and your poems and art are so carefully crafted, they’re a delight to see! This year I have been on a virtual journey, visiting a positive blog every day and keeping a list on my own site as a resource. Your blog is today’s entry, and I’m very glad I discovered it!

    1. Meg, thank you for your nice comments, I so appreciate hearing them, and thank you for visiting and for choosing my blog! I hope you will return again in the future.
