About Me and this blog

     If you're wondering what this blog is all about, it is a blog where I write whatever inspires me. I may write about writing or random stuff. Mostly random. 
     Posting schedule intended is on Sunday (for spiritual type messages) and on Monday about...anything. On the first Wednesday of each month you might also find me participating in the Insecure Writers Support Group.
     So who the heck am I?
     I am a Christian who loves God and loves discovering my relationship with Him. I am a mother of a grown son and daughter. I am the daughter of  my mom and dad who have been a great example for me. I am a sister to a younger brother and sister.  I am a mother-in-law and a grandmother to four. Those are my most important roles in life.
     In March, 2017 my dad died at 81 years old. I'm so blessed to have known him for so long, but he left a hole in our family.
    In 2020, I retired after my 29th year at a school district where I worked as their School Based Social Worker, homeless youth and Foster Care educational Liaison. Other jobs I worked before the school job were a newspaper proofreader, database tech, secretary and bank teller. Each job presented me with a learning experience. 
     I am a writer early mornings and some nights, but not published (for compensation) since the 1980s, when I had a few children's read-a-loud stories appear in a Missouri magazine. I have one self-published (small) collection of short stories call Grim Tales from the Ruralhood. Mostly, I write short stories but have a few first draft novels. 
     T. Powell Coltrin Writes @Journaling Woman is only one of my blogs. I also write at The Ruralhood. There, I chronicle mostly things about (my) rural life and experiences from my youth. Living a rural (area) life helped shape who I've become.
