Artful dispatches from the places where we find ourselves
Transplanted from the fertile soil of rural northwest Iowa, Denise Vredevoogd now calls six acres of southwest Michigan her home. The bonus is being close to the beautiful, soothing shores of Lake Michigan. She is the mother of four adult children and one daughter-in-love, and has degrees in English and music education. Her private piano studio is full of children of all ages and her forte is accompanying other musicians. A professional volunteer, she also leads a Word Weavers group and is on the planning committee for Breathe Christian Writers Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
