When I was seven, my mother left our Oklahoma farm. The four of us kids grew up in the 50’s caught up in the turmoil of a bitter divorce. My dad was killed in a tragic tractor accident in 1981. By then, my mother was a hopeless alcoholic. My older brother died after a bar fight in 1998. My younger brother committed suicide eight years later. Through His grace, I continue to write. The words do not come from me. They come through me. “Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings.” Psalm 63:7
