About

Welcome to Heather’s Blog. I’m looking forward to meeting you and checking out your sites. I just moved about nine years of material over from another blog site, Xanga, who may close down mid-July. At first I was disappointed to make the move because I had a lifetime membership at Xanga and had to spend weeks transferring posts. But now I’m thrilled. Already I’ve met new bloggers and read many new websites. Blogging is a wonderful way to expand my horizons and garner new ideas.

I’m a happily married mom of three young adults. My husband and I are proud to watch our children grow and venture out into the world. My daughter is still in college but my two sons have graduated. One has a job and the other just graduated and is in the process of finding a job in his field, physics. Anyone know of any jobs out there? I’m proud of our children and love watching them grow and mature. They’ve become fine, compassionate, and loving people.

Empty nest? Nah, I’m too busy to let an empty nest bother me. Not enough hours in the day. My husband and I enjoy quiet time together and I have many interests to pursue – one of which is blogging 😀

I am a born-again believer and love God. As you read this blog, you will discover that Bible studies thrill me. There is so much wisdom contained between the covers of the Bible and I am fortunate to sit under the teachings of a remarkable pastor, Pastor Don Moore. Members of our church (Living Word Chapel in West Hurley, New York) are encouraged to teach and there are visiting pastors who stop by our church, I also study the Bible on my own and love sharing what I learn.

One other passion is writing. My current work in process is a memoir. A scene from my memoir was published in a book called: Heavenly Company: Entertaining Angels Unaware – an anthology of angelic encounters compiled by Cecil Murphy.

I’m hoping my memoir will encourage other survivors of abuse. I grew up in a home filled with abuse, including incest. For most of my life I was searching for something that would fill the void of not being loved by my parents. I tried many ways to find that love — therapy, relationships, occult studies, and keeping my life so filled I had no way to think about my past. It was only when I discovered God that I was able to put the pieces of my life back together and walk forward in a joyous life. My nickname – wondering has changed from wondering where the heck God was in my life, to wondering what incredible adventure is going to happen next.

I hope you enjoy my site. Please say hi, share some thoughts, and ask questions. I look forward to meeting you and checking out your sites.

Have a blessed day.

Heather

    So happy to meet you Heather and hear of your love of your family, the Lord and writing. Certainly not in that order of course.
    I am sure you will continue to wander into wonderful new lessons in life as you ‘wonder’ about God.

  2. Hello Heather, I pray God will bless the messages through your blog, touch many lives and of course bless you through it all! It is great you have found the God of the Bible that loves us with an everlasting love. It seems you and I have a few more things in common besides blogging and loving our Lord. I am also writing a memoir, and came from an abusive childhood. I am thrilled by the encouragement I gain from God’s Word. I also have three grown children, one who has the pleasure of living in Heaven now. I must say I am a bit envious of him. I found blogging to be a greater joy than I could have imagined. Thank you for stopping by my blog and following. Many Blessings, Elizabeth

    • Thank you for your wonderful comment and encouragement. Looking forward to hearing more about your memoir and what you share on your blog. Sorry you came from an abusive childhood too – just so glad God can give us beauty for ashes. He can restore what the locusts ate. I am sorry about your son, though glad he’s in Heaven. I’m so glad you stopped by my blog.

      I’m still getting my older posts into shape, getting the links working and all the photos transferred to wordpress from Xanga. I only have 12 more days before Xanga shuts down. Have a blessed day.

    Glad to hear you are now firmly planted in your new home, Heather! I will have a lot of work to do myself, but for now I’ll be over on Blogger … thank you for following me there, too! I’m following you from both of my sites. Not sure if you’ve heard, but, I went to Xanga’s fund raising page, and they extended the date! Apparently, we will now have until July 31st before they either transfer here, or close down. I’m sure that makes a lot of people happy giving them more time to raise those funds, and it also gives us more time to let others know where we’ll be! Blessings to you!

  4. Heather – Joy and thankfulness are weaved into your post, “About”. What a sacred privilege it is to hear some of your powerful story. Though it is written, I think of it as “hearing” your story. Your joy you take and receive from your two sons and daughter is a blessing. I am looking forward to following your blog. Oh, and by the way: thank you for stopping by to see the Wilder Man On Rolling Creek blog. Peace. T

    • I love your blog, and the hope it inspires. Thanks for “hearing” my story. I’m working on a memoir – a healing journey from the abuse I received as a child. I’m hoping it inspires others and helps them to see how much God loves them and how He can bring healing to our lives.

  5. My hope is that this project you are undertaking will connect with the many souls who are parched for God’s encouragement, and one’s experience. Go for it!

    • Thanks, that is my prayer. My pastor’s wife has read my rough draft and has said that it has helped her. She grew up in a loving Christian home and never had any contact with the occult. Because of my rough draft, she has been able to know what to say to people she speaks with that are troubled in similar ways to me. God bless you.

    Heather, thanks for visiting my blog. Best wishes on your memoir. When I read a little of your story, I was reminded of Kathy Pooler’s wonderful resource to memoir writers, especially Christians, and especially those who have suffered abuse and want to help others. Have you found Kathy? She’s a generous friend on social media with themes related to yours. http://www.krpooler.com/memoir-writers-journey-sharing-hope-one-story-at-a-time/
