The Power of People, Places and Things

Take the High Road

My love of words and writing started almost from the time I first began to read. I grew up on a cattle ranch in rural Northern Utah with 8 siblings. One of the first awards I ever won was a Reflections Contest where I wrote about how I would have loved to have been a pioneer. The next award I won was my written story about the impact of 4-H in my life. Telling a story, with meaningful purpose, people, places and things brings me happiness. So much is to be learned from reading the life lessons and experiences of ourselves and others. We all have a story of our own. It's up to us individually to share it. Some people don't know how to share their story through writing.  I love putting legacy, faith, trial and happiness to paper. The mountains are my home and inspiration for many untold stories. Let me help you tell your story!
