About Val

.

Welcome and thanks for visiting!

I am Val, a retired senior now living with my husband in the lovely Canadian Province of Manitoba. For years my husband and I lived in a beautiful location in the Province of Ontario. Writing gradually became an outlet for me during long, dark and snowy evenings in our remote rural home. I have always enjoyed thinking about and researching topics of interest. My hope is that you might find something here that is interesting, challenging or amusing to consider, ponder or have a wee chuckle about.

Many of my articles deal with the Christian faith. Writing about my faith helps me organize and focus my thoughts, especially when I know others might be reading something I have written, and more-so when the topic is difficult or controversial. The articles on this website are not scholastic presentations. They are simply a way of exploring and sharing topics of interest that I come across and enjoy pondering and sharing.

I consider it a privilege to be challenged about my beliefs and opinions. If something I write helps you consider a different perspective, shed some light on a topic that concerns you, or simply gives you a chuckle, that gladdens my heart.

One of my special pleasures is sharing videos or writings by others that make me think, laugh or just plain enjoy the experience of watching or reading. I hope you will also find enjoyment and inspiration from these special and very talented people.

Many of the topics I write about are responses to thoughts or questions I have discussed with friends. Others are stories that come to mind from days long gone.

I hope you will take everything you find here in the spirit in which it is intended—that being a spirit of love and respect for God, his creation, and all mankind.
