I was born in Johannesburg in South Africa and have two sisters. In 1971 I was married and had two daughters. 14 years later I got divorced.
I have lived mostly in the Transvaal (Gauteng), I spent a year in Kwa Zulu Natal (in South Africa) and two years in Swaziland and am now living in a small retirement “village” in Vereeniging.
My schooling took place in Johannesburg. I qualified as a hairdresser, then I did a secretarial course which eventually led me to meeting the man who became my husband! Later I did a Public Relations course. There was a time I was selling skin care products, icing cakes, did a flower arranging course, entered a decoupage picture in a show. I used to sew my own clothes, embroider, crochet, garden and enjoy creative things which now mainly consist of my cooking and baking.
I was a stay-at-home mother until my children left school and then I worked at Hospice, and then at the Anglican church.
Now while I go about my domestic work at home, my focus is on learning God’s ways, serving the Lord and sharing His love with everyone I meet and I praise Him!
