Profile Information

Verna enjoys writing christian poetry, and gospel songs.  She enjoys helping others in whatever way she possible can.  She believes in using natural remedies, vs. drugs, and that it is better to prevent diseases than to try to cure it once it starts.  

During the Special Olympics, while she was a student at the University, she was the head assistant chaperone, representing the state of Montana, as a volunteer.  Verna was involved in prison ministry, and wrote several plays for the prisoners to perform.  She played sang, played her guitar, and keyboard for the prisoners.  She was involved in the feeding program for the homeless, as a volunteer.  She visits the nursing facilities to sing, and play for the residents.    

Verna has dedicated her life to serving the Lord.  She writes Southern style gospel songs, and some with a Caribbean beat.  She enjoys singing, playing the piano, the organ and the guitar.

 Verna has written a book that will encourage the reader to open the bible, and search the scriptures for more of God's promises.  The bible is a wonderful book to study, and will bring the reader closer to the Lord.

Here is an excerpt from the book:

We are near the ending of earth’s history, and as we look around us, we can see how violent this world is becoming.  The signs that Jesus warned us about, many have already happened.  In the last days of earth’s history, there will be signs that mark the end of the world. 

Here are some of the signs that Jesus told his disciples would happen.  Jesus said that nations would be at war with each other, and as we look at our world history, there are nations at war with each other, trying to wipe each other off the face of the earth.  There are famines in various parts of the world, as men, women, and children die of starvation each day.  There are pestilences, and earthquakes, hurricanes, and typhoons in various places, including the United States.   There are diseases that we have never heard of.  There are diseases that have no cure.  Many people become ill, and some die from the food that they eat.  It is only by the grace of God that we are alive today.   Scientists alter our food in the labs.  Our food is genetically modified.  What God made perfect, man destroyed.   

Something is happening, and this is not the time for us to slumber, and sleep.  The Spirit of God is slowly, being withdrawn, from the earth.  It is time for us to awake out of sleep, and to surrender our lives to Christ.  “…now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now our salvation nearer than when we first believed.”  Romans 13:11.  

This book deals with many of these issues, some in the form of poetry.  There is hope beyond this world, hope of a better world to come.  The poems that are in this book, will help the readers with some of these issues, and offer them hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Daniel being faithful to his God, found himself as the main course on the menu in the lion’s den.  Daniel was cast into the lion’s den, to be eaten by the lions, but God was faithful to Daniel.  God delivered Daniel, and closed the lion’s mouth, and they did not eat Daniel.  As Christians, we will be severely tested, we will be tried, and we will go through difficult times.  Even though we know that, it is not easy when we find ourselves in the furnace, because it gets very hot. We must hold on to Jesus, and believe his promises. 

Our burdens get very heavy, and we cry out to the Lord, to have mercy on us, and to deliver us from the evil one.  The road to heaven is not an easy road to travel, but if we persevere, and we take hold of God’s hands, and allow him to lead, then we know that everything is going to work out in our best interest. 

Even though we know that the Lord will not put more on us than we can bear, it still does not make it easy, when we go through trials, and difficulties.   Jesus told his disciples: “I have many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.”  John 16:12.
