Welcome, Lorena. What would you like for our readers to know about you personally?
I am an ordinary woman who God chose to marry a minister. The experience was wonderful, at times frightful, rewarding and exciting. We have lived in nine states, and God enabled me to accept different cultures and climates—from mountain ranges to flat prairie lands.
Tell us about your family.
I have been married to my preacher husband for 58 years (2019) and have two daughters, eight grandchildren and nineteen great grandchildren. Ted and I are retired and live in
with our daughter, son-in-law, and a
nine-year-old granddaughter. Texas
Have you written other nonfiction books?
Yes: His Story is the entire Old Testament written in chronological story form. There are no direct quotes, and the prophets are included within the stories of the kings. Portions of Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon are included within the stories of King David and King Solomon.
Do you have any other books in the works right now?
What kinds of hobbies and leisure activities do you enjoy?
I enjoy writing, reading, picnics, visiting family, and friends.
Why did you write the featured book?
I was very uncomfortable being placed on such a high pedestal as a pastor’s wife. I wanted people to realize I was a woman like other women who had problems, liked to have fun, and I giggled and cried. I was not perfect but felt I was expected to be with a perfectly orderly, spotless home at all times. Today’s pastors’ wives are allowed to fit into the congregation—thankfully.
I am just me, the way God has made me, and I need to accept myself as such and not compare myself to others.
What do you want the reader to take away from the book?
God has made each person special with talents and gifts He gives them. We all need to accept ourselves and not to compare ourselves with others.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell my readers about you or your book?
I was a bashful, shy girl of nineteen when I married Ted. For years I hid behind him during any social activity. God showed me my bashfulness was pride. I was worried about what others thought of me. Throughout the years, God has grown me into a woman who loves others more than myself, so I think of their needs. I Corinthians 12:9-10 has become my testimony. I know when I am brave enough to talk to people, it is God’s love within me—it is not myself.
Where on the Internet can the readers find you?
I do not have a blog nor a website. I am on Facebook.
