About Me
I was a single mother with five children under the age of 14. We endured hard days, what I call “the lean years.” Yes, there were programs to help, but in many ways, those programs were designed to make us permanent fixtures in an impersonal system. They were designed to make us stand still in life.

But another factor made all the difference for us. It was the ministry we received from Christians of various faith traditions. Because needs aren’t always material. A welfare check doesn’t heal the kinds of wounds divorce and poverty cause. But the love of Christ does.

This type of ministry doesn’t make you stand still in life. Instead, it lifts you to a new place. It doesn’t just provide. It encourages. It brings healing.

And it showed me that the Church is bigger than I thought.

During our years of need, Christians encouraged me as I earned a bachelor’s degree in English at Penn State and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. Encouragement continued as I embarked on a career in journalism and later turned to a career in teaching, which has included two summers in China. I earned my master’s degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Currently, I am an instructor at Great Commission Schools. When not teaching or writing, I restore antique quilts and craft projects for my grandchildren.

  1. Nancy, I’m planning on adding a few Guest Bloggers, and would love to have you participate. This can be a new piece or a reposting of one you’ve already written and feel strongly about. The only parameter is that it more-or-less fit into my “power of Story” theme. What do you think?

  2. Hi Nancy,
    I am finally getting around to accepting requests for pages referred to me. Yours is a GEM!!! I look forward to exploring and sharing with friends your words of wisdom; and for carrying the torch via PA State Committee. Kathy G
