About


My name is Anne Payne. I've been married 32 years to my soul mate, and the Lord has blessed us with four children, one son-in-law, and four grandchildren. I'm an eclectic blogger here at Stuff & Nonsense (http://duhpaynes.blogspot.com), sharing about Christian books, photography and rural life. I love taking photos of old barns, birds (especially my chickens), and flowers. Living in the country, on top of a hill where there’s a cooling breeze, is where you’ll find me with camera in hand. :)

Community activities I have served in include Women’s Ministry, Nursery and Children’s Sunday School, and three years as VBS director in a local church.

After 20 years experience as home educators, my husband and I graduated our youngest child in 2014. Since my oldest daughter’s death in 2012, I have been writing through my grief.  

Being an avid reader most of my life, and a reviewer of Christian Fiction since 2011, I love sharing author interviews, book reviews, and giveaways on my blog.

Barns, Birds, Books and more...that is what you will find here at Stuff & Nonsense.
