Turning the Parched Life into a Well-Watered Garden


Hello, my friends! My name is Gleniece.

Living in the Desert Southwest has been a challenge. It has also been a blessing. Join me as I share my thoughts on sparsity and abundance, longing and fulfillment, and desperation and hope while living out my faith in a dry and lonesome land.

I'm a wife of forty years, a mother of five homeschooled children, and a grateful daughter of God. I am married to a mighty man. Mighty in stature, mighty in the Word of God, mighty in his patience with me all these many years.

I run my business, Desert Rain Editing, coax herbs to grow in my scant desert garden, and maintain my sanity in a hell-bent world through prayer and trust in God. (Merlot and some extra-dark chocolate are extremely helpful, too.)

Client Testimonials

"If you are looking for an editor with heart, one that sees the story beyond word count and grammar, I highly recommend Gleniece. My experience was one of great comfort and confidence in her ability to bring to life a story that was hard to write. She asked questions to pull more details out . . . to help in the telling of my personal and vulnerable memoir. She made suggestions on how the flow could improve, yet it was always my decision to implement or not. I have other books in mind, and will return to Desert Rain Editing for any and all of them." —Teresa Leet

More Client Testimonials

"I needed an editor, but I really wanted her to be a sister in Christ. The founder of FlourishWriters recommended Gleniece Lytle. She was such a pleasure to work with, professional and kind. Her suggestions never altered my intent which is one of the areas I was concerned about. She was patient with my inexperience in this process. Her fees were beyond fair. I highly recommend her." —Lynda Sauls

"I am so grateful for Gleniece's expert eyes on my Bible studies. She not only points out basic errors but stays faithful to the Word of God. Her editing and her invaluable friendship over the years have made me a better writer and strengthened me in my walk with Christ. As long as she will help me, I plan on coming to her again and again." —Lisa Morris
