For all who have ventured through domestic abuse, parenting a child with multiple disabilities, identity theft, medical mayhem, a difficult divorce, betrayal from trusted Christians and the like . . . I understand. Here’s my story.

As my faith was sifted to the core, a hope-filled foundation began to take root through a relentless examination of God’s truths and a daily dependence on the empowering work of the Holy Spirit.

My experience as a caregiver, ongoing physical pain, education in psychology, and certification as a life coach have given me an unwavering passion to encourage and equip caregivers and their families with truths and tools that help them live well regardless of life’s ever-changing circumstances.

I’ve spent most of my life living in the states of California and Texas. In 1993, I graduated with a degree in Communications and a double-minor in Education and Psychology. My husband is my hero, and combined we have five witty, creative young adult children. I treasure time with my family, reading on quiet afternoons, and, when my body lets me after back surgery, fulfilling my never-ending wish to win yard-of-the-month through gardening.

Learn more about how I've learned to navigate faith and real life in my books, Reframing Life: Focusing on God When Life Gets Sideways and When Life Isn't Fair: What They Didn't Tell Us in Sunday School.
