Hello,

    My name is Becky Puetz.  I'm wife, mother, grandmother and friend to some very special people.. I live in a small town near the heart of Oklahoma.

    I am a born again Christian and am honored to share the Good News of the FREE Gift of Salvation He purchased for us at Calvary. It's my honor to introduce Jesus to those who don't know Him personally as yet.

I enjoy writing for HubPages, blogging, cooking, sewing, gardening, listening to music and spending quality time wih my family and my precious Cocker Spaniels. 

  I have been writing on the internet for several years, but ended up taking a long break after a bad experience with eHow. I began writing articles again only a few years ago and hope to earn a part time income from my work. I have content published on several websites but HubPages is my favorite and so far they have been the most honest, dependable and even profitable. it has been a positive experience and I hope it continues on in this direction.

   I'm looking forward to an exciting and rewarding future here at HubPages. I only hope that HubPages doesn't "sell out" or change structure completely and will remain honest, fair and loyal to the writers who supply the outstanding content that makes this great site so popular and successful. As of this writing, HubPages is the most open, honest and share-fair place on the internet that I have found. I can only hope that it remains this way.
