As long as I can remember I have loved water. I was on a swim team and water skiing at age five. I am happiest by water, any water; it can be a lake, a waterfall, the ocean, a mountain stream, or even a fountain. The water reminds me of my source of joy and hope.
I love being a child of God. He is the one who created all the water, land, and sky. I love following Jesus the one who came to live and die and rise again for me and you. I love the Holy Spirit who comforts and counsels me. I love that I can know God and that He gives me grace and forgiveness each and every day.
I love my husband. We met on a blind date and have been enjoying the journey together ever since.
I love our four daughters, being their mom, and watching them grow into amazing women. I love the two men who married our oldest two daughters that I can now call sons. I adore our two granddaughters, and grandson and the absolute joy that comes from being called Mimi.
I also have a passion for sharing my experiences and insights with various groups. I love speaking, facilitating discussion, and teaching. I enjoy watching people discover new things, and be inspired to go and practice what they've learned.
I have had the privilege of speaking to women's groups around the country and abroad in South Korea, Hong Kong, Ethiopia, and Kenya.
I love to sing, laugh, have fun, and help others find the source of joy and hope.
