head shots 146

Hi, I am glad you stopped by.

This is my personal blog, where I not only tell my story of the struggles that I have faced with thoughts of suicide and my attempt, but also the hope that I find with my faith in God.  It is my hope to encourage you along the way to reach out to others, to seek a deeper relationship with God, and to love the self you are, and just some random stuff here and there with no real meaning other then it might make you smile.

Now More about me!

I have owned my own business over the years, but have sold the Coffee house that my husband and I stated from the ground up to focus on what God would have me say as a writer.

God called me to write and speak for him 20 years ago and I said No, I should have learned what happens from Jonah when you say” No” to God, but I’m not always that quick to learn.

I am now working on a book about mine and Scott’s walk out of drugs. (it is a slow work) I hope that it will help at least one person to see that no matter how far you have fallen you can still come back home, God is always waiting.

I am available to be used by God so if you need a speaker for your next women’s event just let me know.

I have been married to my husband Scott (follow him on twitter @ scottsiddle), for thirty years. We have seven grand daughters and one grand son. We live in Ridgecrest California.

In my free time I enjoy playing with my grandchildren, reading, writing, hiking,cycling and camping with my family. My husband and I are pastors of Lifespring Foursquare Church and sing with the worship team.

        aww, Deena, you sweetie. Your hubby and a couple others have pointed out minor flaws with the Kindle version, and I’ve updated the file. You can down load the updated version, but I’m ashamed to say I’m not completely sure how. I think you have to remove it and re-down load it…

        Just minor changes, mostly formatting issues. Nothing of the actual story changed. thanks for reading =D

        Carrie unlike my honey who has a editors heart, and I’m glad because he keeps me from looking like crap. I just feel the story, And the heart of your story is so big I do not even see anything else. I will not even bother with a new version. Loving this one warts and all.
