Teach me your way, O LORD, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever. — Psalm 86:11-12, NIV
As a busy wife, mother, and writer of Christian non-fiction, I am all about God’s Word. It is the one thing I know I can count on in a world of unpredictability and instability, the sure foundation that sustains me in every circumstance of life. My passion is to share God’s Word with others through my books, blogs, and devotionals with the hope that others will come to love God’s Word and enjoy a more intimate relationship with Him.
My thirty-five year journey as a committed Christian has been filled with much joy and many growing pains. I received Jesus as my Savior at the age of fifteen and lived in close fellowship with Him through my high school years. However, as so many young people do, I put God on the back burner when I went off to college and for nearly seven years lived in rebellion against God and the truths of His Word. Despite my determination to live life on my own terms, in His mercy God protected me until I ultimately discovered the one thing I could not live without — a relationship with Jesus! Since surrendering all of my life to Him as a young adult, He has blessed me in more ways than I can count and walked with me on one incredible journey! He has shown me time after time that the peace and joy resulting from obedience to His Word are by far sweeter than any tangible reward or accomplishment. Through all of life’s challenging moments, I know that God is ever-present and He will be faithful to the promises of His Word.
Among my greatest blessings are my husband, Steve, and our two children, Chris and Joy. We are privileged to attend a wonderful Christ-centered church where we are actively involved in music ministry and Bible study.
I have authored two devotional books — Good to the Last Drop: Refreshing Inspiration for Homeschool Moms and Other Busy Women, which was released in May, 2010, and Lessons from the La-Z-Boy: Inspiring Devotions for Busy Believers, which is scheduled for release in late 2011.
