What would you like to know?
You can see from our family picture that I am the mom of grown kids - who are still doing some growing up. Some are working and some are still in college and suprisingly, I am still a busy mom, new grandmother - and a busy woman. Like many of you, I'm sandwiched between a growing family and growing older parents. I have a kind and funny husband who has been my partner in this life for 30 years now and who is thrilled we are finally empty nesters. Well, almost empty nesters - if you don't count the pig, the dogs, the cats, the bird and other sundry critters. And I am blessed to have a circle of friends who have taught me much. That is my real life.
When I am not doing family, I am a writer, a Bible teacher, a speaker and a talk radio host. My passion is engaging women in an exciting life of faith, because from there, everything else makes sense. I've authored four books, written more than 1000 newspaper columns, hosted a radio program for 10 years and traveled the country engaging women with the Word of God and each other.
Like you I am on the journey of being God's woman in the 21st century. It involves joys and struggles, heartbreaks and triumphs. It is both hard and easy. It takes increidble strength and fully embracing our weaknesses. Being a woman is the most blessed positon in all creation - but being God's woman is the most priveleged.
It is an honor to engage with other women from all walks of life, backgrounds, and seasons of life who share our enviable posititon as God's beloved daughters.
