In 2001 I became aware of my deep spiritual need to know God better. I had accepted Christ as a teenager but something was still missing. I had a yearning for something more than salvation, a relationship. Not just any relationship, but the only relationship that fills a person’s heart….Jesus!
I have been happily married to Doug for over 22 years now and we have one son, Levi, who is a senior in high school this year. I have two beautiful step daughters, Courtney and Chelsea. Courtney is married to Dan and they have given us our precious granddaughter, Addison. Chelsea is engaged to be married to Mitch. We have a great family and this is truly a blessing.
In 2002, after spending a year with my nose in the bible, God was preparing me for something big. My mother died the end of that year after losing her battle with lung cancer. This was the hardest time of my life and I was too young (age 38) to be without my mother. At that time, my son was only 7 years old and I needed her wisdom and love in my life. The verse that got me through that time in my life was Isaiah 26:3. I needed perfect peace, I needed God and I found him trustworthy and faithful to his word.
