I’m a born and bred Texas Domestic Engineer married to my sweetheart and best friend, John, aka, Mr. Fix-It for 30 years. I have two grown amazing children, a precious daughter-in-love, and I’m a grandmother.

I have an amazing sidekick who is a schnauzer wowzer named Sassy. I’m also a sheep wrangler.

Yep, you heard right! I’ll share some about sheep wrangling in future posts. We have a small sheep ranch in the Texas Hill Country. We currently live in the “ hspace=”5“ vspace=”5">
I am a comical mix of Doris Day and Annie Oakley wanna- be. I am convinced God has a sense of humor with the comical country escapades I get in. I’m a city girl with a country heart who loves Jesus, my family, and country life.

When I was 12 years old I invited Jesus into my heart as my Savior but it was many years later as a young adult when I understood what it meant for Him to be the Lord of my life. We’ve had a love relationship ever since.

I’ve enjoyed being involved with Christian ministry for many years, as a director, teacher, and conference speaker. Since 2006 I have been involved and taught a Christ centered health and wellness program, First Place 4 Health . In 2010 I began serving in First Place as a Network Leader for Texas that helps train and support other group leaders. In 2011 I had 18 devotionals published in First Place 4 Health’s Devotional Book, “Better Together.”

The passion of my heart is to share God’s message of hope through writing, teaching and encouraging others in Christ. I love to help others discover the real difference Jesus makes to empower us to live beyond our circumstances.

I’m a flawed gal who needs Jesus. I’m an ordinary woman who God continues to transform from a shepherd to a warrior. Every day I am amazed at what he does in my life. Many times I back seat drive him, yet he’s always patient with me as I work through the process of letting go and giving him the wheel.

Life is full of so many things that define who we are. But I want to share with you something that does not define who I am. Chronic Active Hepatitis C has been living with me for 20 years. Hepatitis C lives with me, I do not live with it. I contracted Hepatitis C in a very unusual way. Stop by and visit my testimony and see how God has turned a tragic story into a Life beyond Hepatitis C.
