Hello and Welcome
Thanks for your visit, readers, writers and others. I hope my writing causes someone to ask the big question: What am I doing with Jesus? Nothing would please me more for your answer impacts your destiny. I want to give myself to the gifts God has given me. Ever since I can remember, and certainly since I could read, books and words have filled my mind. I also write nonfiction, but my writing genre of choice is women’s fiction with inspirational romance. My heroes and heroines are strong men and women who turn tragedy into triumph. There’s always a faith element to my stories. My desire is to be a wordsmith woman, one who writes, grows, and lives for God. I’m on an enthusiastic adventure for Him. Join me!

I Can’t Remember Me
I Can’t Remember Me, by Judy Martin-Urban and Courtney Martin Larson, LangMarc Publishing, 2006. Jude Urbanski is the pen name for Judy Martin-Urban. Excerpt- “When I first awakened from the coma, I vaguely remembered Jerry, my daughter, mother or siblings. I accepted Jerry as my husband because he told me he was, but I didn’t remember having a husband…I didn’t remember much about Zachary as a person, much less as my son…” -Courtney Martin Larson, author Review: Lauretta A. Lunsford It is difficult to find books that tell an honest story from the heart, especially those stories that contain such deep personal relationships that would be difficult for most people to share. Often it is easier to go anonymous. The book is very readable and well-put-together. Beyond this compelling story, Judy intersperses factual information about brain injuries that made it educational to read. Beyond that, it is a story of bravery, hope, and the strong nature of building family bonds. I recommend it for anyone, and it would be especially helpful to someone who is facing brain injuries personally or in a family member.
