He was a desire in my heart as a child; and that desire finally found its source when as a young teen, I heard the gospel of Jesus Christ for the first time.

I have also been blessed to know the simple joys of life, having been married to my high-school sweetheart for over 32 years. As the mother of three grown sons and six beautiful grandchildren, I can say that my cup runneth over.

In Him, I find the strength I need to face the next hurdle of life with courage—whatever might come my way. I am an accountant by day, but my real love is writing. The greatest motivation for me in that endeavor is to shine a light on God’s truth and serve as an encouragement to others to better know the God Who Loves Them.
