In the early days of my new life in Christ, I would often skim through the many verses in the Psalms about the wicked; they seemed wearisome. In fact, when I decided to script an entire Psalm on a large piece of parchment, I chose Psalm 145 because it only contained one line about the wicked!

A Request for Healing

Teaching God’s truth and the beauty of His Word is my greatest delight! My art card company, Flower Girl Greetings, was launched in 2012 with this purpose. In April 2020, ShaleFragments.com became the gathering place for the writings.

As I have studied the rich meanings of the original Greek and Hebrew languages of the Bible, I continue to see beautiful progressions and connections that compel me to organize and convey their life-changing beauty!
