You Are My Passion
I am passionate about equipping you to thrive. Too many women are merely 'survive' in their jobs, in their marriages, and in their task of parenting. Until I intentionally set out to become equipped, I too was merely a survivor of whatever life brought me. I am now thriving! My hope is that you will find tools here that will better equip you to thrive in multiple areas of life!
I am happily married to my husband Joe, am mom in a blended family of seven kids and Grandma to nine. I spend my days working in the church office, then the later afternoon hours are devoted to my commitment to ongoing research and writing. Nights and weekends are a balance of time with family, ministry , homemaking, and a little R & R.
Beach going is an avid passion, and I will drop pretty much all activities if invited to go! I love eclectic historic villages along the highways and byways. My favorite place to read, write, and prep for ministry is my local Starbucks. Gardening is therapeutic (for a number of years, I was a Horticultural Therapist-paid to play in the dirt).
I cross the spectrum of ministry. With 35 years background in church ministry, it is natural for me to serve as Assistant to the Pastoral team in our urban church. My background in writing and publishing is exactly what allows me to equip other writers to address questions the world is looking for answers to.
My spiritual gift of teaching, background working for the Department of Education, and passion for higher education create a natural fit for me at my Alma Mater, Calvary International. I am blessed to serve the school as Dean of Women and Professor of Pastoral Counseling courses.
