Hi friends – I’m so glad you are here and visiting my blog! Below is my “official bio” so you can learn a little about me and my background. But the most important thing to know about me is I love the Lord, my family and my friends and I feel so blessed God has given me a platform to share the experiences He has brought me through in a way that will help people discover renewed joy, hope and encouragement despite their circumstances. God has given me a passion and a gift for words and writing is one of my biggest blessings.
I am a proud single mom of three incredible young adults who went from just being my kids to being my lifeline and best friends. When I’m not working or writing, I love to spend time with my family, playing tennis on several tennis leagues, playing golf, hanging out with friends, and going on girls trips as often as possible. My favorite season is any season besides winter! Although Christmas is my favorite holiday and I look forward to it every year. I live for sunshine and summer days, going to the beach, driving up to the mountains, spending all day on a boat on the lake, lounging on my back deck watching TV, hiking, and anything that involves being outdoors.
I’m not perfect, I have flaws, I make mistakes. But I love Jesus and I am so thankful for His unconditional love and mercy and for the opportunities He has given me to bring Him glory through the words I write.
