Sunday, 1994 my husband Rick experienced a severe
base-of-the-brain stroke that left him permanently
impaired both mentally and physically.
Aug. 17, 2008 he experienced a severe heart attack
with 99.5% blockage.
Several months later he fell breaking his nose and
almost bled to death possibly due to his heart
stopping and being on multiple blood thinners. He
was diagnosed with an irregular heart beat that may be
causing him to pass out.
seen similar crosses. Are any of them the same as
Horseshoe nail art has been around since
horseshoes; so there are bound
to be many variations of crosses. Features, components
& quality, may differ.
With the aid of a local
blacksmith, I began making horseshoe nail crosses
in late May, 2004 to help
my husband Rick
exercise his fingers as a form of rehab, after his
stroke. With practice, I learned to produce a quality
cross that is very attractive. They generate a lot of
attention and get many compliments.
a request from a Military Chaplain in March 2006 to provide
crosses for his soldiers being deployed to Iraq, I began
thinking about priorities. I created the symbolic
Patriotic American Red White & Blue Christian Soldiers
Horse Shoe Nail Cross and Website as symbols of dignity
and respect (web-site
intent) to show the world, "I am Proud to be an
American crusading in the Army of Soldiers for Christ!"
Now as I surf
the Net, I see my creations of words, pictures, concept and
theme being copied without my knowledge or approval. I
worked very hard to create a quality cross, and appropriate
viewing material only to see it being taken. I have to
question how someone can do this in the name of God?
Plagiarism is immoral and illegal. I strive to

crosses were completely hand-crafted here in the United Sates
by myself. After months of struggling to keep up, I promised
myself that if I could just make it through Christmas 2008
that I was done. I removed the purchasing links in mid
December and never expected to replace them.
Then in early 2009, I foolishly replaced them to keep trying
only to get myself into a jam. Once again during the
Holidays of 2009, I was swamped. I sent out a mass email
to everyone that purchased my ebook
for help. They came through by sending me
crosses. That's it, I can make them no
longer. I hoped to go on forever, but I can't!
No matter how hard I try to pace myself, it always ends up
all or none. Quite
gave away hundreds from June,
2004 until Christmas 2009. It's taking it's toll mentally, physically and
financially. After giving away
hundreds of crosses to honor personal requests from our
troops, our veterans, their families and by Chaplains
and spouses to be handed out on military bases, (home
& abroad) I am being forced to quit due to a
variety of reasons.
More and more
everyday! As I grow older, I am becoming increasingly
grateful of what America truly stands for.
crosses tarnish or rust?
crosses have several protective coatings; however they are made with
real horseshoe nails. Horseshoe nails are steel. Steel
can rust. So, it is recommended that you
keep them dry as possible by removing them before swimming,
bathing, in the shower or hot tub, sweaty conditions etc. With
care, the cross could last for years.
I know that it's a genuine Christian Soldiers Cross
Unlike others, it will have vinyl coated wire and a real natural
leather neck cord for durability designed for our troops and
will have a "Tag of Origin" with a

"I am a member of the army... I love the crosses... Thanks for
all you do for the Lord and for our Soldiers.
God bless our Troops... It is really nice to see someone take time and
effort out of their busy lives to do what you do.
I would love to have the Christian Soldiers Cross for
Patriotic Americans. It is funny I always look
for crosses to wear but it seems like everything you
find out in the public is just not original. It
doesn't really matter how long it takes. I will wear
it with pride and never take it off. I admire
you for your work and dedication. I love what
you are doing with the crosses, and even more, I love
how you are not ashamed to proclaim Jesus Christ via
this web site. You are truly a blessing to me, the
soldiers, and everyone else who supports you. I LOVE
