Guiding and encouraging others is my passion. We all face an uncertain future due to the changing world we live in. When life changes, due to unforeseen events, one can feel UNROOTED, unstable and insecure. My life experiences of growing up overseas in a missionary family, and being uprooted many times, helps me understand the challenges of beginning again. Building a new life can be a difficult experience. Finding your place of security and establishing new roots is possible.

As we journey together in life, I hope to provide guidance, encouragement, and honesty. My own journey has helped me establish a firm foundation in Christ. He is the only ROCK that will not crumble during the storms of life.

My blogs are written to help you on your own quest. Please allow me to be your guide. I have formed a small group where we share our personal journeys. It is called the Growth Circle. Your story is being written daily, just like a tree grows a yearly growth ring. Events mark our years, and leave their impact. In a tree, it is called “reaction wood.” How have events marked your life? If you had a cross-section taken today…what would it show?

Do you want to have a stronger faith?

Do you believe you can help someone grow stronger?

Learning from each other is the best way to move forward. You may have the life experiences that will help someone else to move forward with hope. Join me in The Growth Ring Circle today.

In 2018, I wrote a children’s book published by Author Academy Elite, a publishing/coaching company. It was written to help children learn to cope with events in their lives. I’m very honored that my first book was a top 10 Finalist for a Children’s Award in the 2018 Global Author Academy Awards.

 Big Changes for Little Bugs was inspired by a storm that took place the summer of 2017. Four small bugs learn to be courageous and resilient after a storm uproots them in Big Changes for Little Bugs. 

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, left devastation in many areas, and the displacement of families inspired me to write an encouraging story of hope and healing for all children.

 I live in Georgia with my husband, Tom, and my four grandchildren who entertain and inspire me. I love discovering God's teachable moments and desire to help you "sink your roots in Him, and build your life on Jesus Christ." Colossians 2:7 God's Word Translation
