Will I Make It Through Tomorrow?

I didn’t want to wake up, but the bird outside wouldn’t shut up. I’d reached an emotional low and I needed a proven solution that would help me.

Our Greatest Cheerleader

There are times when the people most vital to our care cannot give us what we need. It’s a painful reality that often shapes our emotional development and taints our self-image.

I want to hear from you! Tell me about yourself here. 🙂

About Me

I grew up the oldest of four kids. My husband Doug and I have six living children. We will meet two others in heaven. With a twenty year age gap from oldest to youngest, we’ve spent the last several years navigating being parents to adults while still raising young kids. 😮 It’s an adventure of love, humility, and trust in God. ❤

I homeschooled for twenty years and loved it! Besides that full-time job, I’ve been an associate pastor, a worship ministry director, and director of a church prayer ministry. I served for two years on the board of our school’s parent association. Currently I spend my days writing, doing lay ministry, and being a wife, mom, and friend. My hobbies are indoor and outdoor DIY projects, music and cooking.

If you look over my website, you find out quickly that my identity in Christ is most important to me. It is the lens from which I view my experiences and the life that God has designed for me and my family.
