Hello! Welcome to my cyber home. So glad you came by for a visit. My name is Gail, and I am Wife. Mom. Writer. Daughter. Fighter. Overcomer. A woman on a journey.
Center of His Wheel is about staying balanced. As a wife, mom, and writer, I can quickly become unbalanced, flopping about with the cares of life. But, the Potter continually draws me to the center of His wheel. It is there I find the peace I so desperately crave and the joy that alludes me, otherwise.
Unfortunately, I didn’t always run to Him. In fact, this journey didn’t begin with sunshine and roses, but heartache, depression, suicidal thoughts, and self-destructive actions. But thankfully, the Lord didn’t give up on me. His love won me over, and I eventually gave my heart to Him.
Afterward, I studied hard and passed state boards for Cosmetology. Married the man of my dreams. Had two beautiful, loving kids, moved a house, and remodeled said house.
In the past, I have written songs, plays, local newspaper articles, and Bible studies. Currently, I am working on several manuscripts while blogging.
Above all, my Heavenly Father, His Son, Jesus Christ, my Lord, and Savior. The Holy Spirit, my Comforter, and Guide. The Lord has given me wonderful family and friends who love and support me. Born and raised in the South, I love all things southern—well maybe not the mosquitoes. But who doesn’t like fried chicken, fried okra, and fried squash? You get the idea. I hope you will join me as I share this incredible season of life!
Something about me:
Coffee is my cup of southern comfort.
I have at least one DIY project in progress at all times.
Four-wheeling- I just do it to make my kids anxious. You should’ve seen my daughter the day I did a ‘donut’ around the utility pole. Their favorite saying—”Your bones won’t heal like they use to.” Oh well.
Music-I awake with music in my head. What? You don’t?
Writing—I love telling stories through fiction, non-fiction, and songs. My song “Less of Me and More of You” came in the top 5 runners-up in the 2010 Singing News/Solid Gospel Songwriters Search
So now that we’ve met grab a glass of iced tea, with or without lemon, or a cup of coffee. Relax and stay awhile!
