Debbie Ridpath Ohi wrote the book, “Writes Online Marketplace.” I am hoping Writers

Mike McArthy is a photographer who uses some of his photos to reproduce in a creative manner depicting paintings, drawings, animations and antique interpretations.

A writer is always a writer – their blood flows from a pen into words, only the act of God can remove this drive or as some people would characterize - a disease of the mind – she is out of her place of what a woman is suppose to do.

Discouragement comes from the devil and encouragement comes from God.
Faith makes things possible, not easy.
Exercise daily, walk with God
