About the Author

Greetings Gems.  Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and reading my blog.

My name is Tonya.  I am a 49-year-old child of God, a wife, a mother, Co-Founder/Owner of Cultivating Gems, Cultivating Gems-Photography, and Cultivating Gems Health Edition.  I have been an Emergency Dispatcher for 17 years.  I have several passions, some of which are God, my parents (both now in heaven), my family, photography/desktop publishing, the sky, writing, and improving my health.  I also like to encourage others to do and be the best that they can be while enjoying life.

I started a blog several times but never really adhered to it.  This time I am.  I have a lot to say and share.  This is the best way to do it.

Prior to starting this, I also went back and forth about my first entry and the order of the blog.  Finally, I decided to just jump right in.

I will cover the subjects above as well as various others so there will be something for everyone.  Please join me in my journey and feel free to comment and leave your suggestions and or opinions.

Peace, love, and blessings to each and every one of you!  Keep looking up!

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, have been called according to his purpose.  ~Romans 8:28 NIV
