I was born Earlisteen Mobley on July 2nd, 1945 in the small town of Alma, Georgia. I was raised attended school and graduated in Patterson, Georgia in 1963.

As a small child growing up with my Mom and Dad I had three sisters and one brother. My brother is the one who started calling me "Dink" or "Dinkey" because I was so small and of course it stuck. After I graduated, I met my future husband Steve in Offerman, Georgia. We married on September 14, 1973 and have one son we named Stephen. We lived in Jesup, Georgia for about 18 years and moved back to Patterson in 2003 to present. We all attend Patterson Baptist Church where Brother R.C. James is our Pastor.

One of my favorite Biblical Scriptures is Acts 17, Verses 28-29.
(28.) For In Him We Live, and move and have our being. As certain also of your own Poets have said, for we are also his offspring. (29.) Forasmuch Then We are the Offspring of GOD, we ought not to think that the GODHead is like unto gold, or silver or stone, graven by Art or Man's Device.

Twenty-seven years ago my Mother passed away in January 1991. My Mother influenced me in many ways to write poetry, even though she was gone. But, most of all Our Lord Jesus Christ has inspired me to do so.

I began composing in February 1991. Ever since then I have rendered all within me to do my best, throughout the generations. Also, it has given me a New Life in Christ.

Oh Yes, this has encouraged my Heart to continue my Love and My goals in this life on Earth. I Pray that I can continue to write Poetry and pass it on to others. In Jesus Name.
