About the Author:
Betty Jo Mings
I am a Grandmother who has been married over 50 years to a wonderful Christian Husband. I accepted the Lord and was baptized when I was nine years old, and I have loved Him and tried to serve Him all my life. I started writing poems when I was a child, and when I was in High School I was on the school paper staff and wrote poems for the school paper. I attended Biola, and wrote poems for their school paper also. I have had many poems published in books, magazines, papers and periodicals (even had one published in 'Dear Abby'). I have won several prizes for my poetry. I have sold many personal poems written for special occasions, and for some time I sold poems in decorated frames to Christian Bookstores around Southern California (even Knott's Berry Farm.) But mainly I use my poems as a ministry to help hurting people and to share my faith with them. My poems are mostly all traditional -- just simple words with the simple Gospel of Christ -- and they are dedicated to the Lord. If anyone can be blessed by them, there is nothing more I could ask.
