Enjoy a full, hot breakfast provided by our always smiling kitchen team of Maria and George Wall and Bonnie Green. There is no charge for our breakfast. The free will giving basket will be out. Invite a friend or neighbor!
I grew up in a big family with lots of aunts and uncles and cousins. For me, as a youngster, listening to the aunts and uncles and my grandmother was the highpoint of our holiday gatherings. My formal education included Sociology, Journalism, and Photojournalism. Certified and licensed to interview and photograph, I eagerly entered the working world and continued my education across from willing story tellers in unusual places. After my daughter was born I began freelancing as a memoir ghost writer and later teacher.
It is my conviction, proven by experience, that everyone has a load of wonderful stories and brilliance in his or her own way. Everyone has a different and distinctive voice (think orchestra or flower garden). By bent of genes, disposition, and God’s grace, I know how to tease stories out of people in a way that delights and surprises the story teller. The Scottsdale Library System, Paradise Valley Junior College, and the Sun City Bell Library are a few of the places I’ve taught classes in the Phoenix area over the past 26 years.
I have been a member of The Church of the Palms since August, and have been made to feel more than welcome! I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you. Hey, let’s swap stories and have fun.
