The long and short is that I was born into a wonderful Christian home. As a teenager I made a decision that altered my life and caused me pain beyond belief. However it was this very pain that started me on a journey of truly finding out who God was for myself. I needed and wanted to know him because I desperately needed him to fix my life. I really didn’t think I deserved his help but I asked anyway. I spent several years in loneliness and tears trying to raise two children as a single mom and battling my value and the big ugly monster of fear. Fear that I would always be alone. Fear that it would always be this way. Fear of physical danger because of what I had been through. Fear that I was now disqualified from anything worth while in life. And fear that no one would ever want me now. It was a humbling and horrible time but I can honestly say it was the goodness of a loving father who let me go through it. He wanted to answer my hearts cry to know him. Because he’s faithful it worked. I learned how I could depend on him when I was alone. I learned he provides when there is no money or food or gas or diapers or Christmas presents. I learned he would protect me from harm when I was most vulnerable. I learned he loved me no matter what I did or deserved. That’s whats so amazing about his love, his grace and his mercy. He didn’t give me what I deserved and he did give me what I didn’t deserve. He changed everything!
Because of Gods grace I have now been married to the same gift and answer to every women’s prayer of a husband for 25 years going on forever and I’m still crazy about that man. We have four children and two grandchildren. They are my treasures in this life. My continued journey hasn’t been without more heartache or trouble. I can tell you it has had plenty but Jesus has been the one on the other side of the rope pulling me through each time.
I’ve had the privilege to serve the local church for over twenty years from women’s ministries and Bible studies to conferences and pastoring. I attended the Kings University in Southlake, Texas, began to blog and am currently writing a book while endeavoring to learn different avenues of communication.
I have always enjoyed writing. Especially when I am reading the Word and revelation comes. It excites my soul and I’m compelled to share. In the many seasons of my life as I taught Bible studies this was the inspiration that would lead into deep study. I fondly pile up my notebooks in my cabinets and go back through and read them. They re-inspire me all over again.
My hope is that I can encourage and inspire you to look into the face of God through His Word.
Life can be hard plain and simple but God is always faithful and always good. Always! He won’t leave us as He found us if we will allow the Potter to mold the clay. He gave us His Word in human form and in letter. Gods Word is light and life. Seek Him and you’ll find Him. Knock and He will open the door. Ask and He will answer. He is no respecter of persons. What He did for me He will do for you.
