lois 'at a glimpse'

(sydney, australia)

meet me, lois, the creator of this website. here's a glimpse of the ever emerging, me.

* over the years i have had many challenges. i believe that God works all things together for our good. if he didn't i wouldn't be here right now.

* a native new yorker, living ‘down under’ since 2001. citizen of heaven. my home away from home.

* i married an aussie, my best friend. that is the shorter version of how i came to be living 'down under.'

* i am mom to four, the wife of the one.

* my second daughter was a stillbirth. she is now resting in heavenly peace. a part of me will always be there with her. for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. it was a hard time for us all.

* i love the ocean; the wild untamed, uncontrollable ocean. it has been my place of therapy for years. i swim there summer, fall, winter and spring.

* i have been gluten free since 1997. after having a complete system crash i discovered i was diagnosed with celiac at birth. the outcome instilled in me a great emphasis on healthy eating and lifestyle.

* i never feel great on any given day. many factors have taken a toll on me over the years but i am learning the ways to rebuild up my spirit, soul and body

* i am a teacher by trade. i wrote a children's book about our move from new york to sydney. i love kids. they inspire me, especially my own. they keep me young at heart.

* i journal every day for as long as i can remember. it is one way i experience God.

* i am an intercessor. i firmly believe our prayers move heaven and earth, especially for those whom the enemy took unfair advantage of as children. if they didn't, i wouldn't be here right now.

* i enjoy seeing new places, effective teamwork, partnering with God, swimming, reading, reflecting in my hammock, growing my joy center, popcorn movie nights, doing crafts with kids, writing without capitals and making new friends.

Thank you for this website, it's so nice to meet you. I'm looking forward to meeting others as well. Love to hear how God is touching the lives of others, thank you for sharing!
I love the ocean too, my favorite place! And, have five living children, we experienced stillbirth three times.
Blessings to you!

so nice to meet you, a kindred spirit sister in the lord. i look forward to getting to know you and believing god together that although adversity is present it doesn't have to define us. sometimes we just need reminding, a lot.
thank you, carol

I could not believe how many things we have in common. I am a retired teacher. I taught English As A Second Language at university level. Then in 1995 I was hit with MS and that effectively retired me. I began to write down stories and little snippits as a way to keep my sanity and because my memory was foggy. After several years of that the Lord said, "We have a book." I replied, "We do?" And then we spent 3 more years making it happen!I've written two adult books and several children's books, two of them are published.

I only lived in NY one summer--that was enough! Too many people. I love kids; we have 2 daughters and 5 grandkids. Smart kids...they live by the ocean!

I'm a mercy. But I have a team of teacher, ruler and mercy that work together. Everything is run through the mercy grid. All the portions of my spirit seem to have a great sense of humor.

I enjoy reading, writing, knitting, crochet, painting and piano. Love animals and the ocean. That's all I can say about that. Hope to return some day. I would still enjoy hiking and kayaking if I could. Nature is my place of restoration.

My hubbie was a pastor for 18 years and then made a lateral move into pastoral counseling. So I've seen a lot of the damage people can do to others and it does take time to re-build your life on God's principles.

thanks for sharing. i am always blessed when i see or hear of results, be it in our spirit soul or body. in your case God could have healed your body but your diet (hard work, learning discipline..)has added the component needed to make the difference and that is also cause to celebrate!
look forward to chatting again.

hello Lois!

lovely Lois - now I get to put a story to the voice! I have been tracking with Plumbline/Sapphire for a while, but I still feel like such a baby in it all - partly because I'm such a 'magpie' & latch on to all kinds of shiny spiritual things! Related to your struggle with diet - in the last 18 months I have been eating primal & as a result it has really healed my body. God has seem more interested in healing my body & my eating that way rather than in anything miraculous (a bit frustrating as I am reading through the gospel of Mark at the moment :))
I am redemptive gift of prophet (I think) living in what I have been told is an exhorter city, Melbourne, look forward to connecting with others in Australia through this site...
