Bio on Me :)

When I was younger, someone asked me what I wanted to do with my life. At the time, my immediate goals were mostly related to education, professional achievement, marriage, and raising a family.

As I began to achieve those goals, however, I realized that what I actually wanted was more than those simple objectives. What I really wanted was far more. . .and far more difficult to define.

Don’t get me wrong. . .I'm blessed. I have an amazing British husband and four gorgeous, cheeky kids. My friends are precious to me and I currently live in my ideal cozy mountain home in Northern California.   I’ve been fortunate to have traveled extensively and to have lived in the UK for nearly nine years. Even my jobs bless and fulfill me. . .mother, wife, Worship Director, Writer, Speaker, Educator.

But I have also experienced a great deal of pain, loss, and grief throughout my life. My childhood was, to put it bluntly, a nightmarish mix of abuse, violence, fear and abandonment and I have had to endure the excruciating pain of burying my precious baby son, Seth. A head on collision with a drunk driver left me with multiple injuries and devastating head injury and I’ve had over two dozen miscarriages.

So I ‘get’ pain and loss.   I am well acquainted with grief and despair.  But I also know ‘hope.’ Intimately. . .joyously. . .entirely. And it is here that my ‘real’ purpose begins.

What will God do with all this?  Who knows. . .but I am excited to find out!
