Welcome to Naomi’s website!
Dear readers, leaders and friends,
Wow! Thank you for the privilege of entertaining and communicating with you.
I live in Houston, Texas with my geologist and bird-watching husband, Bob, and we work together with the Circle of Friends students each week at Chapelwood United Methodist, where I serve as volunteer coordinator of special needs. Our philosophy is that every meeting of persons is a gift exchange, and gifts are exchanged in our many program designed to meet the needs of students with disabilities and their parents.
With a degree in Christian education, I set out to do something important with my life. I’m still working on it. The trip has been fun and the future exciting, and I want to share it with you. I worked as director of Christian education in Coffeyville, Kansas then Director of youth work at Boston Avenue Methodist Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Along the way I wrote curriculum for the United Methodist Church and other works and served as chair of the Texas Conference Committee on Disability Concerns of the United Methodist Church.
In the current book section, you will find the following:
- QUICK LOOK FOR VOLUNTEER EMERGENCY RESPONDERS: A GUIDE FOR AIDING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES is the result of working with community emergency volunteers who wanted quick and correct information with picture boards.
- HARPS IN THE WILLOWS STRENGTHS FOR REINVENTING LIFE is the result of my work with chronic illness support groups.
- THE RELUCTANT IMMIGRANT was born from my experience living part time in the Hill Country where Germans settled in the 1840′s.
- Get With It, Spencer! is especially good for children with vision problems or for those with perfect vision who like a good laugh. Poor Spencer, who needs glasses, crows at all the wrong times. People throw things.
Have fun and come back again as I add new stuff all the time.
