This is my biography. I was a single, divorced parent, and after years of abuse which led to alcoholism, and going through a rape, I sunk into the deepest depths of society. On a misty November night, while riding on Highway 202 in a New England town, I was rear-ended by a Mack truck, flung thirty feet in the air, and landed on cement. With no life left in me, I had a near-death experience that changed my life forever. I believe, and it is my prayer, that anyone who has been through any kind of trauma, rape, abuse, or addiction of any kind will read this and find new hope in their lives. Through my relationship with Jesus Christ, I have a new lease on life that gives me security, wisdom, peace, joy, and the unconditional love of God my Father. Every day, my strength is renewed in Him, and no matter what storms may come my way, He has taught me how to overcome.

The Nolanville church of Christ Encampment was born during a time of spiritual revival in America, and eventually grew to be one of the most well-known and enduring annual camp meetings in Central Texas. Encamped Toward Heaven tells the story of the pioneer families who established the Lord s church on the banks of Nolan Creek, and follows their descendants through more than a century of faith, floods, famine, and fire. Ten days were set aside every August when hundreds of people would camp on the 14 acre site, enjoying the fellowship of friends and family. The gospel preachers and song leaders were among the best of their time, often drawing crowds of over a thousand people for evening services. In the early days the people would camp in covered wagons and cook over an open fire. In time many built rustic cabins and cooked on electric stoves. The Nolanville Encampment had a major impact on the physical and spiritual growth of churches in Central Texas, and is one of the many untold stories of Texas history. Not any longer."
