Here's a little bit about Marjorie from
her own pen and From Her Heart!
Whatever I have done in life that is
worth mentioning has been governed by inspiration and blessings
from the Lord. Without Him, I would be nothing but a bag of
bones and a puff of hot air. Every good and perfect gift comes
down from the Father of Lights in Whom there is no variableness
nor shadow of turning (ref. James 1:17). If it is good, then
it is from Him. I have nothing to brag about. I have plenty
for which to be thankful.
I am a Georgia native, but lived 21 years
of my adult life in Dallas, TX. I have been writing since
childhood. In 1975 in prayer, I dedicated my writing totally
to the Lord. I asked Him to tell me what to write about, and
I would write it. I have followed that since that day. In
the late '70's I accepted the call to minister to shut-ins,
the terminally ill and their families for my church in the
Dallas area. I headed up that work for 10 years. The Lord
guided me and my group of 35 workers by impressions I would
get. I left the list of over 100 people on my breakfast table.
Many times when I would walk by, I would be impressed to call
a particular person, or their visitor. It would always be
just the right time and a need would be filled. The Lord blended
the work for Him with rearing three children and taking care
of our home. Only the Lord could have made it all work productively.
My children often accompanied me to visit
or make a call at the funeral home. Today, each has a particularly
warm spot in their hearts, and gifts, for reaching out to
those who cross their paths. My son is a minister, my two
daughters serve by helping others. At different times, I worked
as a teacher's aide and artist, as receptionist at a university
department and then as manager of a law office. Due to concerns
for my elderly father, I moved back to Georgia in 1991. I
continued writing while working in Atlanta until I retired
last September. I have continued to head up Evergreen Prayer
Team which grew from a small circle of relatives and friends.
It is set up via e-mail. Due to health problems, I have to
pace my work at home and family activities. I balance my time
with reaching out to others through my writing and whatever
service I can be.
The Lord impressed me to write about
callings that people have and how each person has one or several.
I talked with a minister's wife. She was speaking her heart
when she was talking about how hard it is for her husband
and her to do all the visiting for the church he pastors.
We began talking of the fact that each person in the church
has been given a gift and if they listen, a calling, to help
with the Lord's work. Somehow, that conversation kept growing.
Soon, I was writing my first Callings issue (Issue 3) on Abraham.
Then I followed that line hitting high spots with subsequent
issues till the issue on Jehu was published. There are so
many stories of callings in the Bible, I could write the rest
of my life and never cover them. It has been an inspiration
and encouragement to me as I have considered how ready to
obey and go those have been who are called. It has also served
as warning to me of what it means to misuse or deny a calling.
Everything does work together for good
for those who are called according to His purpose! I had to
put the callings pages on hold when my father's condition
worsened. He died at age 98 June 15, 2004. I hope to continue
the callings series at some point if the Lord impresses me
that is the way to go. You can read the series by following

I pray each time that I pen something
that some word, phrase or sentence will stick in the mind
of some reader and minister to them according to their needs.
If that happens even a few times, I am blessed and the time
and effort is well spent. I believe that judgment is reserved
to the end, because good and evil are passed down through
the generations. I pray to pass much good down through the
generations that follow me in my family, through friends and
those who read what I write. I pray for the rewards of that
day when we will be with the Father, for I want many rewards
to throw at His feet, for they are His. He is the beginning
and the end. I can claim nothing other than the salvation
full and free given to me by the Father when He gave His only
Son to save me from my sins. Come blessed, Lord Jesus, Savior
of the world.
In Jesus name and in His love, Marjorie
