Having served in women’s ministry leadership positions over the years and being the Founder and Director of a nonprofit ministry for military women, I have loved to learn how people work. Whether President of a Protestant Women of the Chapel (PWOC) group, training PWOC Boards/women’s ministry leadership, training Bible study teachers, or being able to teach studies myself, I have enjoyed building teams that thrive, helping women find their purpose and place, and challenging them to impact the place where the Lord has planted them. Speaking for programs and retreats has been a particular highlight as we have a chance to build relationships and learn and grow together.
Through writing, teaching, and training, I have had the privilege of working with women across the United States and Europe. I would love to meet you and your group as well! Simply in need of some encouragement today? Stop by the blog and you might find just what you need. Also, you can check out books and other resources with more coming soon. Whether you’re looking for guidance or help in areas of ministry or longing for encouragement and spiritual growth, I would love to have the chance to meet you and/or your group where you are.
Send me a note and let me know how I can help you thrive in the place where you are!
For a more personal look:
I LOVE adventure – and God knew it all along. If I had my way, I would periodically rappel off rock cliffs, scuba dive in oceans around the world, and jump out of airplanes. So far, only two of the three have been accomplished. I am praying my husband can hook me up with the third.
I LOVE adventure – have I told you that? The greatest adventure of all, though, is the journey of my walk with Christ. The adrenaline rush when I feel the Holy Spirit pushing me to do something I never expected, the surprising paths on which this journey takes me, these are the moments of unforeseen adventure I could never have anticipated.
My husband, the soldier, has been my partner in this adventure for about fifteen years now. He still chuckles at me in those moments when I am amazed at God’s provision and faithfulness again, wondering why I am so surprised after God has taken care of so much through the years. We live this life with the two children God has put in our care, our daughter – 18 years and our son – 15 years.
We love to camp, play in the front yard, make cupcakes, and enjoy quiet evenings around a board game. We are home-bodied, introverts who randomly step out of our comfort zone because it is what God has called us to do, meeting some amazing people and watching God do some awesome things along the way. Our nomadic life is something we have come to cherish. The journey becomes more of a treasure hunt as we get a front row seat to God at work.
Personally, I love to run, read, sew, bake, and eat chocolate, which is exactly why I run. I attempt to be creative on occasion, and am at times successful. Longing to be more like Christ tomorrow than I am today, I have become a huge fan of grace. God has challenged me to encourage other women to jump in, heart and soul, to the life God has laid out for them – and what an awesome life it is!
