Who me? Be on the board of a ministry for women? But I don’t know the Bible well enough…I haven’t attended a church long enough…I don’t know enough about God or religion…boy oh boy did I have an excess of reasons to not become involved, but I’m sure happy that I listened, prayed and said yes anyway!
Looking back, I found there was something about loveSTRONG that kept drawing me in. I attended a couple of day events and finally decided to attend the 2015 Fall Retreat. I was hurt, broken, sick and spiritually lost - but pretended that everything was A-Okay, and put on a good front (or was it?). I felt the pull to get myself 'straight’ with God - so when the retreat leaders called for women who wanted to be baptized, I got dunked! My life looks so different than it did just a few years ago. God is working through me in ways that I never dreamed of. I am very blessed and grateful to be living life with so many wonderful women involved with loveSTRONG.
I grew up in Washington state; most years in the heart of the Columbia Basin. I married my high school sweetheart and we’re still experiencing life with each other 35+ years later. We have 2 adult children and I have lived in Arizona since 2005.
God is working in my life, that is for sure!
