This was our writing challenge and this is what came out of my head and heart.
I was born at a very early age and in spite of that extra time, I thought my life was over when my husband died. It took a while, but I came to appreciate my middle life. I happily married at age 18, and had the perfect family of a girl and then a boy. My life was full of self-education through advanced classes and speaker’s training at4-H, Weight Watchers, and Christian Women’s Club
These life lessons propelled me into a writing career which began with the safety of cookbooks. When someone else sold my bulimia story to a news magazine, I got mad and then I got even by turning my story into a book called Meeting Myself. Someone introduced me to Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour and my mad became my glad. The whole tone of my life changed.
People would say I am a mild, self-controlled individual and that is true except for the part of me that still punishes myself by overeating. I struggle with this every day, but I live on, finding another kind of living after what I thought was my death.
This strikes the high lights of my life, without mentioning a dozen other things that captured my life often. What about you? What does your seven-minute bio say? Try it. You will be surprised at what comes out.
