Pat worked in clerical and editorial when she decided to leave the job force to attend the University of Kansas. It was the years of "Don't trust anyone over thirty". She was thirty. After she graduated with a degree in Advertising and Editorial Art, she found that her "advanced age" handicapped her in getting work. Stubborn, she spent one and a half years finding that first job--she's worked everything else as a temp. She went on to work twenty plus years in graphic art. Ten of those years taught her computer graphics.
Her latest book, Escape from the Prison System: Finding the Narrow Door tells of seventeen men and women who escaped from prison through salvation. Before that, she published the Dear Pat Newsletter. Dear Pat preceded One Touch from the Maker in telling of the Lord's Grace.
The newsletter contained true stories of times when the Lord demonstrated His presence--healings, provision, protection, and wisdom. It ran for about two years. Wanting the world to see these stories and the others she included later, she decided to combine them in the book.
Pat is mother to one and grandma (Gray-a-mah according to her grandson) to four." Hailey Nichole recently joined the family as first great-grandchild, daughter of Steven. Hailey's dad is now going to college, thrilled to be a dad. Then came Liliana, daughter to Sean, who has had to go to an expanded hat size. Now Steven's family has grown by one--soon-to-be rowdy--boy in April 2012.
Pat's real birth in Christ took place in March of 1985.
