Travelling

I'm accompanying my husband on a business road trip the next five days. He has to be on the first job site by 3:00 tomorrow afternoon and google maps says it takes over 8 1/2 hours to get there without stops. I set the alarm for 4:00 a.m. and turned the light out tonight at 10:00 after taking sleeping meds. I can't sleep. I got up after an hour. It's now midnight. Oh joy! (And Tom has just now gone to bed himself.) If you read this in time, please pray for our safety on the highway.

As for blog posts while we're gone, I don't know what kind of internet access we'll have, since we'll be in "Small Town," Saskatchewan. If I can, I will.

Absolutely praying!!! How cool that you're accompanying him!!!
So far we've had a good trip and interesting conversation as we drove despite 4 hours of sleep for him and 2 1/2 for me. I'm hanging out in our room while he is working, munching on cherries from the fruit stand in the motel parking lot. I'm looking forward to bedtime!
Oh! And thanks for your prayers, Di. Despite my occassional gasps as the nervous passenger I always am, the drive was without incident.

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA

I'm married (35 years in December 2008) with four grown sons. I love my city (Winnipeg) and my country (Canada) and promote them both to whoever will listen. God (through Jesus Christ) is the biggest part of my life. I am learning to let him take control of all areas--though I do better at this some times more than others.

I have written a book that's recently been published about part of my journey with God. In it I tell how God confronted me with the same-sex attraction issues I've struggled with all my adult life and how he led me through them to a deeper and more meaningful relationship with him. God is amazing—his forgiveness, his love, his movement in our lives when we allow him and so much more. I suspect God will never run out of things to teach me or ways to make me grow and that’s a good thing (though often very painful).

I suppose I can say that what gives me the greatest pleasure in life is telling others about…

A Real Testimony
I finished your book. A real testimony to what God does for us.

I Had Tears Coming

I sat down to read it about a week later and ended up finishing it the same night. At first I admit I was a little bored and thought that the whole book was about a battle all in your mind, but as I continued reading this creeping thought came over me of a different...struggle in my own life, that I would never in my right mind have shared with anyone accept maybe God. I've mentioned your book to a few people because it stirs up age-old controversies that I have myself argued and wondered about, namely about whether or not homosexuality can be cured or just managed like alcoholism--you just have to stay away from temptation. I noticed at the end of your book that your struggle story …
