I’m married to Bob Lane, pastored (now retired) for 27 years at a sweet and loving Southern Baptist church on the outskirts of a major city. I’m a retired public school teacher of 15 years. My husband and I have 4 children–3 daughters and 1 son. Our daughters are all married to ministers and our son is a missionary with the International Mission Board. Our children have blessed us with 10 grandchildren – 4 boys and 6 girls!
In my retirement years I have taken up writing and have written and illustrated a children’s book titled, The Missing Calf. I have adapted the parable of the lost sheep from Luke 15 to a story about a missing calf. Instead of a shepherd there’s a cowboy named Tex and his horse, Montana, who set out to track down a missing calf. My son’s
inspired the adaptation. So when he wanted me to tell him a story, it just seemed the thing to do to add a flavor of Texas. Interestingly, Montana was drawn in the likeness of a horse I owned in my young adult years, Goldie. At this time The Missing Calf is a legacy for my children and grandchildren. However, my dream is for it to be published-someday.
