How Long have Words Been my Friends?

If you think about it, almost all communication revolves around words – even TV and video that require scripts. But words are not just for writing… they are for giving life to your thoughts and feelings. For conveying how you see the world and those who are in it – for reaching out and impacting others. I guess you could say that I love words!

My writing journey began before I was ten years old. Good books, encouraging parents and teachers, and a colourful imagination kindled the spark into an all-consuming inferno. It culminated in a two-year study of journalism. Life’s seasons and storms have doused my literary fire at times, but I have I have always found solace in the depth and texture of words, and their capacity to encapsulate the many layers of life, love, and everything in between.

Now, at last, I have realised my dream of writing and designing from home on a full-time basis.

My journey has led me to what I think of as a ‘spacious place’. By God’s amazing Grace and mind-blowing generosity, I find myself living in my favourite place (the greater Kruger Park area), with my favourite person (my husband Peter), and doing what I love – using words to create written and graphic content… how blessed can one girl get?


I write books, content for clients around the world, build websites and create custom graphic content, in addition to my range of Bible Journal Products. When I’m not doing these things, I love to sling my camera and my journal into my backpack and head for neighbouring Kruger Park. Other favourites include reading and indulging in paper crafts.

Words Count Design is the home of all that I do with words, and I hope that you’ll find something that adds value to your business and personal journey here. If you have any questions about a project, or if you just want to say hi, I’d love to hear from you!
