God always puts me in the right place at the right time regardless of where I think I should be. For instance, I never thought I would be leading a women’s ministry, yet here I am. I had always thought those types of events were full of cliques and too much emotion. And, yet, here I am leading this dynamic ministry with a team of women who reflect hearts of love to other women as we strive to welcome our guests to each event.
Growing up in a church, I learned about God’s unconditional, radical love from the leaders of that church and from my family who nurtured me. While in high school I met a guy who swept me off my feet and later became my husband. God’s love was further reinforced as our family grew from the birth of our son, who then multiplied the blessing by marrying his childhood sweetheart and eventually by adding three grandchildren.
In addition to our family, my husband I are enjoying life as we volunteer in the community, travel, go to movies and try our best to be love not only to our family, but also our friends, our church and our community. I enjoy encouraging women, being a musician on a worship team, the challenge of creative writing and being right where I am today.
