My Website: 

I’m Regina Shepherd, Hill, Riddle - McIntosh… but I’ve only had things published under my names – Regina Hill and Regina Riddle and Regina McIntosh, who I am currently. I enjoy writing and hope to write something that shares my heartfelt joy in the Lord. I love God above all else and want to please Him above all else. I hope to write more Christian original poetry and other ideas.

I have poems published here on Poetry Soup and many of my poems have been published by Blue Mountain Arts (SPS Studios) in their calendars, anthologies and greeting cards. I’ve also had poems published in the magazines True Love and True Romance (if I’m recalling the names right). I’ve had a few essays and articles published (mostly by regional magazines) and – I haven’t tried to have too many things published for a few years. I do hope to submit some of my writings as time allows.

I work full time as a business owner so write what I can during my spare time. I believe God inspires me to write and I hope to, as I’ve already said, write things that praise and worship Him. Jesus is my everything. After Jesus, I love family, my dogs, nature, reading (especially the Bible and words by some great preachers like Spurgeon and A.W. Tozer) writing and currently canning home grown veggies.

I made a mistake when I finalized this contest. There were supposed to be four more winning poems and I'm sorry that I did it too quickly - but it won't allow me to go back and change anything - I did try to though! Thanks to all of you and God bless you. Love and prayers, Gina

Gina, thank you so much for the inspiration, contest and my placement, appreciate. It is very difficult to correct a contest once it has been finalized, it has happened to me also.

Gina, you of all people should know how easy it is to do this. After all, your name got left off the Trophy-winning spot in one of my contests. I remember how I tried to get it fixed and could not. You were so gracious about it, too. I'm sure your omitted poets will be gracious, too. Just let all of those who were not listed think they were winners!

Now there will be 29 poets thinking they are the 4 winners! Works well for spreading Christmas cheer :)
