Welcome! I’m so glad you stopped by my website.
When I go to new blogs, I always click on the “About” page first. I imagine you’ve done the same thing. So I’ll share a something that I’d want to know. And I’ll share them in order of importance to me.
I’m a sold-out lover and follower of Jesus! I’m passionate about knowing God’s Word, serving in His church and loving His people.
I love my family. I’ve been married to my husband and best friend for over 30 years. I’m the mom of five young adult children that I’m pouring my life into.
Our family is God-designed and constructed. The first set of children came biologically. God blessed us with three boys … boom, boom, boom. When the third son was born, our first was still three. I don’t remember much about those first few years except I cried a lot from sleepless nights and little boys who climbed out of shopping carts and climbed over couches and chairs.
Then in 2005, God blessed us with two little daughters via adoption. Our girls came from the country of Liberia where there was a civil war. They grew up with every deprivation possible. Since then they have become lovely young ladies. Here’s a photo of my crew.
I adore my ministry and friends at Proverbs 31 Ministries. I’ve been on staff with P31 since 1999 and am currently the executive director of communications. I oversee the Encouragement for Today Devotions, co-direct COMPEL Writer’s Training, and am in charge of all the content at She Speaks – our annual conference for writers and speakers.
Here’s a few more random thoughts.
I have a degree in Journalism and Public Relations from Arizona State University. Before joining the staff of Proverbs 31 Ministries, I worked in public relations and marketing for developers of retirement and assisted living communities. I’ve authored or co-authored a few books.
