Following is a brief interview with Lorraine.
What one thing do you want the visitors to your web site to know about you?
That I love, love, love, God’s Word. I love to study it, to memorize it, and to teach the principles through creative stories and written examples. I love Psalm 96:3: “PUBLISH his glorious deeds among the nations. Tell everyone about the amazing things He does.”
What are people surprised to discover about you?
That I used to twirl fire batons and that I’m pretty darn good at milking a cow.
How would you classify your writing style?
Honest (oh, I pray ALWAYS honest). Quirky. Deeply passionate. And prayerful. While my fingers fly across the keyboard, I pray that God will speak His Words through me and that His Holy Spirit will fill the white space between the words so that the reader will feel as if God is speaking through me to them.
What motivates you to write and speak?
It’s a compulsion. I identify with Jesus’ disciples in Acts 4:20, “For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” God has done so much in my life. He’s taken my poor choices, cleaned them up, and somehow turned them around to be used for His glory. Every day He cleans up the “stink” in my life and perfumes me with the fragrance of Christ. You’ve just GOT to be crazy about a God who does things like that! I feel compelled to open my mouth and to turn on my computer and tell others how great God is, to remind them that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH HIM. Is that good news or what?
Fill in the blank: I feel most like myself when I . . .
When I’m wrapped in a snuggly bathrobe looking out my living room at the mountains as worship music plays on my stereo and I sip a non-fat carmel latte. What I see, feel, taste, hear and touch makes me feel at peace with who I am as a woman and with my God.
