Someone Who Encouraged Me:

Me and my grandmother


This is a photo of me and my grandmother (Peabody). I was three weeks old when the photo was taken. I look at it everyday and remember how much she encouraged me in all that I was/am passionate about. Especially when it came to putting pen to paper. She and my grandfather gave me my first type writer/word processor when I was in high school.

I’m thankful for the memories of her encouragement!

Who encourages you in what you are passionate about?

  1. Your other Grandma was my encourager. She also knew when to give me a “kick in the Hiny” to get me grow up and become an independent woman. I knew I could always go to her for advice especially when I had the boys.. She was a wealth of wisdom.. What am I passionate about… Well lately it has been prayer, prayer and more prayer.. I remember an older lady at church and she was such a prayer warrior.. I want to be like Elizabeth Markas and be a prayer warrior for others… Other than that college football, NFL and college basketball are secondary passions 🙂

  2. Elizabeth is gone now but she was a dear friend.. I would visit her in the nursing home and never was there a word of complaint out of her… such a dear sweet lady…I cried when I found out she had died when I went to visit her…
