Welcome to my site!
Wandering with Words is a journey around the world through words.
The written word, from when I could read, has opened up new and exciting worlds and since I became an author myself I have created new worlds, helped other people to create new worlds.
I embarked on the journey of a writer when I turned forty years of age.  This was when my nest had emptied. I felt the need to express myself and I believed there was a deposit of experience within me I could share with the world. I faced many challenges, one of the hardest was learning to expose my true thoughts, feelings and opinions. 
Over the years, my self esteem had suffered and I didn't really know who I was.  To be a writer, I needed to find myself and ceased from building walls around myself.
Words fascinate me, they create images, they help me explore ideas and weave dreams so my life has been enriched.
 Words create friends conversely they make enemies hence the need to choose words wisely.  Friendships forged by words of love, esteem, respect often last a lifetime and enrich those unions.
 Words are the fabric of life, we need to cultivate a vocabulary of words that bless and cheer and create worlds of joy and beauty and goodwill.
My great and driving passion is my love for the Lord Jesus Christ.  Deep within me, he is the one who has set me free from inhibitions and poor self esteem to grow as a writer and take my place in the world of words. I want to share with all and anyone, the depthless and immeasurable love of God through Jesus, his Son.
I hope you can join me on the trip and enjoy the journey, perhaps even add to the journey with a word or two of your own.
Enjoy the stories, articles, images, be enriched by what you read and see in Wandering with Words.

  1. The best positive in my life is coming to Christ. You will note that I said “Is” because it is a continuing process and it will continue until I see him face to face. A recent positive in my life was when my husband Roger came into remission from Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Thank you Gwen . You and Bruce are a real inspiration to me. Best wishes to you both and congratulations from Audrey

  2. I am also writing to make you understand what a magnificent experience my wife’s girl gained viewing your webblog.
    She even learned too many issues, which include how it is like to possess an awesome giving character to make men and women just know
    a number of complicated things. You truly surpassed people’s desires.

    I appreciate you for rendering the useful, trusted, informative as
    well as unique tips on your topic to Tanya. https://acecbd.net/
