Shirley Buxton is a daughter of God, who since childhood, has been taught His ways. Her father was a minister, as is her husband, Jerry, two of their sons, Stephen and Andrew, and their grandson, Joel. God and His church are the center of her life.
Jerry and Shirley have four children, all married now, twelve grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. The Buxtons live in Crestline, CA. a small town that sets 5000 feet high in the San Bernardino Mountains.
In recent years, Shirley has published four books. The first, A Thousand Pieces, now into its fourth printing, is the story of Jerry’s horrendous accident in 1994 when he was struck by a drunk driver. He was in the hospital five months, and his remarkable recovery is attributed both to excellent medical care, and to the miraculous touch of God. Her second book is entitled, Road Tales. In July of 2006, she released the beautiful book, Link to Excellence. Her latest is The Bitter Bite of Beelzebub.
Shirley also is an occasional speaker, both at women’s conferences and other meetings, and with Jerry, in marriage seminars.
In recent months, Shirley has been diagnosed with infiltrating ductal carcinoma in her right breast. She is sharing a journal of sorts at: http://www.mycancerdetourblog.wordpress.com and would love to have you jump over there to read of her progress.
