ABOUT THE AUTHOR
In her spare time, she continues to enjoy the association of family and friends in addition to her tranquil moments reading by the fireplace during the crisp winter or on her back porch enjoying nature during the warmer seasons.
In addition to writing, she serves as a caregiver for a family member and offers assistance to those new to the responsibility. “Through training and experience, I find it a joy to share what I’ve learned with others. Now they know what to expect as well as abide by health guidelines in caring for a loved one.”
She encourages reading to the elderly. “Reading to our elders is not in vain. As long as they can still hear us or just feel our touch to assure our presence, they are comforted to know that they are not alone. An inspiring story read to them will lift their spirits and grant them comfort.” Ms Turner believes that caring for the sick along with personal prayer and daily Bible reading have opened her heart to fully appreciate the needs of others. “Applying the fruitage of the spirit according to Galations 5:22,23 was a true wake-up call for me in dealing with various situations. Daily application helped me grow stronger spiritually and emotionally.”
Gardening, sketching and a bit of photography are her other passions. On good sunny mornings, she can be found on her back porch with a cup of java and her laptop. She lives with her family and their dog, Rikki, in North Carolina.
