Welcome to My WordPress.com Site. This is a new adventure in cyberspace for me! I’m not yet sure about everything I can accomplish on this site, but it certainly appears to be an exciting adventure! To let you know a little bit about me, allow me to share that my first and most passionate loves are:
- Writing/Composing and Editing,
- My career as a Licensed Addiction Clinician/Counselor.
My name is actually “Jeanie” Fredlund. However, when I married my husband of two years, I wanted to keep some part of my maiden name. In so doing, I adopted “J.C.” I’m a Free Lance Writer, Author and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. Between the three interests, I’m usually pretty busy. Helping people, and justice have long been two of my passions. As a kid I was the one that all the other kids came to for advice whenever they had a problem. I tested-out highest in Social Services as a junior high school student and knew that I would never be able to ignore my dream of becoming a helping professional for long.
Before pursuing my career as an addiction clinician, however, I took time to get married and have a family. (Then, I got divorced.) I have two lovely adult children who are both happily married with families of their own. My grandchildren have been the special little lights of my life!
One of my primary interests over the past four years has been genealogy. I have a family website at myheritage.com. It just seems to keep growing. I’ve found tracing my ancestors as far back as possible a truly exciting endeavor. I’m one of those people who can sit on my computer for days on end once I become seriously involved in writing and/or genealogy. I also enjoy traveling with my husband and curling up for hours with a good book.
I learned a long time ago that if I want to take-on a cause, it’s just like Shakespeare once said, “The Pen is Mightier than the Sword”! His motto has become my own.
Yes, my social life had suffered for all of this and so I began socializing more and met and married my husband two years ago! Keeping all to myself for a time seemed like a small price to pay for the deep satisfaction I’ve gained pursuing my writing and other career goals. I’m ‘back at it again’ and fortunately have an extremely understanding family.
UPDATE: I’ve relocated some of my blog entries to my eight other blogs and websites:
UPDATE! (Dec. 08, 2014) I’ve just completed my first book, BAD RAP: The Truth About the Tragically Misunderstood Pit Bull. It can be found at http://www.Bookwhirl.com.
If I could have any wish, it would be that I be allowed at least one more lifetime in which to continue pursuing my dreams.
If you should take time to read my blogs, I hope very much that you enjoy them!
Take care my friend and God bless always!
