Married to my beloved, Mark, for 27 years and blessed with four awesome kids, one daughter-in-law, and two son-in-laws. Our hearts shot over the moon with joy as we welcomed our first grandchild, Ezra James. We never tire of marveling at what God has done in our lives and continues to do in our hearts! Out of the overflow of that gratitude is a ministry to families – especially couples that are struggling and the newly married.

While I spend a lot of time feeding someone…my husband, little Luke, our goats, cats, kittens, dog and chickens…my passion is writing and communicating God’s love through the medium of pen, paper and music. I feel that my calling in life is to give words and expressions to emotions and truth that others may not know how to express.

I’ve discovered that one thing will fill my heart with complete content – no matter the circumstance – if I’m laughing or crying myself to sleep, knowing Christ is the single most glorious gift! Setting my heart and mind on this single theme- a pursuit of intimacy with Christ has been the most life-altering decision of my life.
