I am Dana Tramba, and I live with Norm, my husband, in Edmond, Oklahoma, at Touchmark in Coffee Creek.
For the first eighteen years of my life, I was Dandy from Lewis, Kansas. Thus the name for my website, Dandystories.com.
I enjoy writing stories, coloring, copying quotes and favorite scriptures, or just doodling. The result is files of stories about life on a Kansas farm, falling in love, and raising our sons. My journals were a constant companion throughout my life. Writing is my therapy!
My career was working as a Registered Nurse, retiring in 2014. I started sorting pictures, stories and reading my journals. When a memory triggers me, I post stories and devotions on my website.
While living my life looking towards the future, I realized my life makes more sense as I look back-words and reread my stories and prayer journals. It feels like a family reunion, visiting a childhood friend, myself. I now know and understand that young girl better.
This Website came out of my passion for encouraging others to “Save Your Life One Story at a Time.” We are the authors of our own stories. Each story is different because of the j mountains and valleys we have traveled through. As I piece my stories together like a puzzle, I see that God has been with me at each turning point in my life.
During the 2020 quarantine, I had plenty of whitespace on my calendar. I began the first draft of my memoir, "Making Peace with the Pieces." The story I planned to write someday!
I hope you will read my stories, and it will trigger a memory for you. Each story ends with a writing prompt. Write or record your story and pass them on to your children and grandchildren.
Your comments motivate me to continue writing. I hope you will join me and
Save Your Life One Story at a Time.
