About Wendydawn Brindley

I have been writing since I was a young teenager ( what about 4,000 years ago?). I majored in Music and English in College. I have written a lot of short stories, devotions, and humorous prose. I am married and have a daughter currently living in Pennsylvania. My first children’s book “Where is Grandpa” is available on Amazon.com currently as well as “Huggin’ Jesus.” In the past I mostly enjoyed writing my “No Matter What” column because it has enabled me to reach many people and it has enriched my own christian life as well as my family and hopefully my readers. God shows me something; I begin to write, and out comes the story. I am also hopeful that I will be able to publish my “No Matter What” columns in a book that includes all that I have written. For now you can check out some of my writings on nomatterwhatstuff..com, goodgriefhavefaith.wordpress.com, wheresgrandpa.wordpress.com, and outstandingntheirfield.wordpress.com. I want to thank all the readers for being a part in our webzine. You are greatly appreciated.

Lately God has touched on me to write “Our World Today – Trying to be a Good Christian in some bad times.” I feel that it is very timely and very identifiable for any person in faith or struggling to achieve more faith.
