Welcome, and thank you for following me on my website.
I started in Missouri and ended up in England. That journey has taken me through great joys and deep valleys. Through my blog, I share some of my trials and blessings, always pointing to Christ, my strong tower. Let me tell you a bit more about myself.
I am the mother of 5 wonderful adult children and 16 beautiful, boisterous grandchildren.
My husband Tom and I are Baptist Bible Fellowship church-planting missionaries in England. You can read more about our ministry here And yes, Tom is a full-blood Cherokee Indian.

Writing has always been a passion. I have journaled for years and done some freelance writing. One of my life's goals is to write a proper book, but that hasn't happened yet.
Instead, the Lord has opened the opportunity for me to publish a series of children's books. What started out as naptime stories for my little granddaughters, turned into True Story Keepsake. You see, my sister and I are the real-life Reba and Katherine. All of the stories are true!
My illustrator, Javier Duarte, has done a wonderful job drawing the characters from family photos, and the buildings, vehicles, and landscapes mirror our farm and home town.
Through these stories, I am creating a keepsake! And you get to join in the fun.
Gail, The Blogger
In 2013, my oldest daughter challenged me to start writing a blog. I had completed an intensive study on 100 Bible words, and she convinced me to start sharing my work.
It was a new adventure for me because I was, and still am not very tech-savvy. Yet, I began posting my work weekly and found a loyal group of readers who started encouraging me to carry on. So, for the past several years, I have blogged through Beside the Well. You will find a subscribe link on this website or here.
Well, I'm still hoping for that proper book! Meanwhile, I am working on final edits to my Bible Words devotionals to offer them as both a paperback and eBook. And, I continue to write and study with hopes that someday it will all fall into place. I hope you enjoyed exploring my site. You can contact me here or through Facebook messenger. Please visit the site links, purchase a Reba and Katherine story or two, and leave me a review on Amazon.
