Meet Patty

1554579_10100133121086792_6082626329199076197_nWelcome to my page.  I started this page not knowing what to expect.  God in His wisdom had something wonderful planned for me.  Through my love of God, I pray that my words bring you encouraging stories and God’s joy to your day.  

I am currently working on research for my first historical novel that is based loosely on my mothers life in Germany during WWII. I work full time, also active in my church, in ministries both locally and with the Dominican Republic ( and for over 9 yrs been a member of Bible Study Fellowship Classes.

Always looking for new things to learn,  I enjoy many hobbies including Bible Journaling, reading, historical research, quilting, and crochet .

Raised in the US Army then becoming an Army wife allowed me to experience many wondrous things . Today I live in Pennsylvania with my family which includes 2 Dachshunds.

Writing has been a wonderful adventure and I can’t wait to see where God leads me from here. 

Thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy reading the articles as much as I enjoy sharing my thoughts with you. May you experience God’s blessings in your lives in everything you do.

I hope it has and will continue to be a major blessing in your life. May God richly bless you as you continue to write and blog.

    1. Thank you for kind words. I believe God uses all of our circumstances for His Kingdom and for our own spiritual growth, even the internet and blogging! I am hungry to hear His Word and I thank you for being used by God for His purpose. It is a wonderful journey! Please tell your son – we are very proud of our military men and women and thank him for his service to God and our country.


      1. You are welcome indeed and I do agree with you that all of life’s circumstances can be used for our growth and for His glory! I will give my son the message as well. Thank you and God bless! –Sebastian


  2. From one Patty to another, welcome to my blog! Thank you for joining me at Life of a Minister Mom, and I look forward to seeing how the Lord continues to use you. Btw, my brother was an active duty Marine until November of last year so we have a deep appreciation for those who serve our country. God bless your son and your entire family!!


    1. Hi! It is always nice to meet another Patty!! 😉 I look forward to walking with God together with you. Thank your brother for his service from us as well – they give so much of themselves to preserve our country. Your daughter is so precious I enjoyed looking at the pictures of her first ball game. Even though we are Pirates fan here…LOL s God’Blessing to you and your wonderful family.


  3. Hi Patty! Just wanted to let you know I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award -because of your dedication to God and Country! You are so genuine and sweet, I feel at home when I visit your blog.


    1. Thank you Cathy, I have had this cold that just won’t leave for the past few weeks and still fighting it so I am a bit behind, but I will check out the award and accept it formally. I appreciate you thinking of me. I always look forward to seeing your post in my inbox! 🙂 Blessings!


    1. Thank you for your prayer – I started on an article. Tom was my encourager when I began writing so to honor him I need to press on. It is bringing a sense of healing. God bless you.


  4. So Patty, you decided to join the small clan of Uncle Spike followers, sometimes known as The Spikey’s…. That makes me a happy blogger now – I really appreciate you making that special mouse click.

    Hope you like my upcoming posts and if you get bored one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too.

    If you have any likes, dislikes or suggestions about my blog, just let me know, either through ‘comments’ or via email. Always welcome reader input 🙂

    Have a great old day…


  5. Hi Patty
    Thanks for following. I’m a happy camper now you are joining me as I trip around by RV, plane, car and time machine to the past.
    Comments, compliments, critiques and wisecracks are most welcome.
    Sorry I haven’t acknowledged you sooner. I’ve been on the road with a poor signal and arguing with himself over possession of the laptop.
    “See” you again soon.

    1. hi Carol, no need to apologize being on the road is much more fun than sitting in front of a computer! 😉 I look forward to more of your travels. Blessings for safe travels!


      1. Wow, that is unexpected feedback, thank you! I haven’t been writing for very long (a few months), every-time I try to write prose or essays, I struggle with the sentences and punctuation, so revert to poetry again 🙂 (I tried again this morning, but bore myself to death in the process)


  6. Hey Patty, just wondered how your book is progressing? The subject sounds extremely interesting and I’ll be looking forward to reading it. It took me five years before I released my first novel. I find writing exciting but being a perfectionist, I was waiting for perfect. (Never happens) AND I must be in the right mood and motivated. But once I have the muse, it’s a 8 hour day writing ritual. Hang in there my friend! Blessings,


    1. Thank you for asking Ellie, I am trusting in God’s timing. Life is still crazy and I can’t seem to stop from spinning out of control some days. It has been about a month since I have done any serious reading, I want to get back to your novel about Cassie…they are terrific books. I am thinking you are right there will never be a perfect to write just like there is never a perfect time to have a baby – what is the old saying if you wait until there is a perfect time then you would never have a baby….I am thinking the same thing applies to writing!! Thank you for your encouragement. Blessings to you and your family!
