About This Blog


 My name is Cecelia Lester. I write my blog under the name Quiet Spirit. I live in central Indiana with my husband of almost 51years. Our son relocated to Kansas in order to have a job but has since returned to Indiana.

 In the waning years of the 20th Century, I felt the need to take a look at my life and decide how I would like to spend it. God led me away from a hobby I had been pursuing and brought me back to writing. I had tried off and on my entire adult life to write but always felt discouraged.

Why A Blog?
In the spring of 2007, I sat in my pastor's study. We were discussing my play "Forgiveness". He and I were co-producing it. Earlier,we had worked together on a Christmas play I had written. During our conversation, I expressed the desire to have others become aware of my writings.

"Why don't you start a blog?" His suggestion seemed something that required a lot of time and work. I was employed full-time and had to consider his idea.

My first effort was not successful. I had a hard time getting into my area and I didn't know how to use the features that site presented. I left my employment and found I had more time to devote to the craft.

One day about six months later, I chose to move my blog to this site. That was in July, 2008.

Why The Name?

I chose the name, Following My King, to state the goal of my writing, as well as my life. I have a mission statement that I try to follow in my life as well as my writing. "Quiet Spirit writes with the focus to minister to those who hurt, to them who search for God, and those who wish to have a closer walk with Jesus."
