As a young person in church, I had to learn the lyrics of songs written for hymns sung in Sunday School. Fanny Crosby was a great hymn lyricist; I enjoyed singing her songs. I loved Jesus Wants Me for a Sun Beam, and other children’s hymns. The story in many of these Sunday School hymns impressed me greatly and I began to write lyrics for music. My poems include lyrics for gospel songs, love tributes to parents, pictures in words, seasonal poems, personal testimonies, and more.
Whatever inspires me, whatever interests me, whatever annoys me, whatever comes to my imagination, or whatever comes to me as I meditate, I put in my poems. It is a great outlet for my overactive brain; I greatly enjoy writing poems. I have been writing poems and short stories since childhood.
