About Bobbi

    I want to thank you for following “A Way With Words.” My joy as a writer is made more complete when people read what I’ve written.

    While I write primarily on faith and mental illness, I’m known to dabble in other subjects, stories, and even the occasional poem. If you have any requests, please let me know.

    I appreciate the mission of your blog, encouraging caregivers to share their stories. I pray you are blessed as you are a blessing to others.

    Gratefully,
    Tony Roberts
