I’m not sure when my love of writing began. Perhaps the seed was planted at a young age when, during a moment of boredom, my mother suggested I write a story about our family’s day trip, accompanied by our cat named Tiger.
In later years, I created stories to use in my writing and speaking. Eventually I co-authored two biblically based courses to help women discover God’s mission for them.
When cascading losses in my family thrust me into unexpected grieving seasons, God developed a story in me that spread across the pages of my first book, Life through Loss: Facing Your Pain, Finding Your Purpose. My heart's cry to those who think there's no hope is to take one small step forward toward God. New life is waiting for them just around the bend.
My personal story of freedom, and the experiences of many others, are told in my latest book, Will the Real Person Please Stand Up? Rising Above the Fear of Rejection. Fear of rejection ruled my life and prevented me from connecting authentically with others. God took me out of hiding and set me on His path to freedom. Now I'm passionate about showing others how they can escape captivity and experience freedom to be the person God created them to be.
