Friend Of The Week – Pam

Pam Depoyan

If you’re a blogger, chances are, there’s a storyteller inside who cannot be silenced. The stories we tell may vary, depending on how God has wired us. Some of us write about our children, whether human or furry – others write about their life experiences, whether serious or humorous. Some of us write about the glory of God, while others tout their experiences with their favorite brands.

But somewhere along the line, we discovered that we have a way with words – a love for sharing our stories and experiences with others – and with keyboards and Internet connections before us, we could not be silenced.

Pam – the prolific blogger behind Writing…Apples Of Gold – is one of the blossoming wordsmiths among us. Her earliest memories revolve around her love story with words, and on her blog she fondly recounts memories of her favorite childhood books, the teachers who shaped her, and sleepless nights as a child when she imaginatively spent her dream time creating scenarios and dialogs with characters from her favorite television shows!

In the real world, she worked for many years in the fields of technical writing and marketing. As much as she loved her job, however, she found this did not satisfy her need to be creative, and soon she found herself engaging in creative writing on the side, where she has found success as a children’s author and an inspirational writer!

Two years ago, Pam created her blog, Writing…Apples Of Gold, where she shares inspirational stories about how she finds God in the everyday, ordinary moments of our lives and she recognizes His artistic beauty all around us.

Comments mean the world to bloggers. If you’re looking for a blog that will encourage and uplift you – if you’re looking for a blogger who will encourage you as a writer, an author, and a person of faith – I encourage you to brighten Pam’s day by dropping by her blog, introducing yourselves, and congratulating her for being our Friend of the Week at Create With Joy?

    Thank you for your wonderful words about my storytelling on my blog and for honoring me as “friend” of the week! Just wanted to let you know that my blog is actually six years old this fall 🙂 Hard for me to believe that so much time has elapsed since I began! Its so encouraging to know you enjoy what I am creating there! Blessings!

  4. Sharon says:

    Can’t get link for FB linkup to work. Is there a problem? Or is it on my end. I was able to link my blog post. Thanks!

    • Hi Sharon,

      I hope you were able to get your FB link-up to work – as far as I know there should not be a problem – if it persists, share it in the comments and I will add it for you! 🙂

    Thanks for hosting!

    Have a great week!

  6. Howdy Ramona! It’s been a while since I’ve actually joined in on Fridays with you, but here I am. What things to I like to blog about? Well, you may recall my little niche in Blogosphere is home to whole lot of mewsic and photography, but occasionally I’ll throw in the mix a bit of mewing. My blog has nothing to do with cats. I like cats, but I do not own one because of my allergies. I did years ago, though. Anywho, my blog name is just a play on words “Curious as a Cathy”. I hope you’ll decide to hop on over to see what’s going on with me any day of the week! 😉
