Hi, I’m Rhonda- a mom, grandmother, retired teacher, storyteller, and writer. Storytelling is a natural way to teach. Jesus often told parables as a way to get His message across to the severest critics. My new passions include writing picture books, maintaining a blog, traveling, photography, DAR, and politics; maybe not politics Thanks for visiting!
