A lot like you...
You can see from our family picture that I am the mom of grown kids - who are now having kids. I am still a busy mom, now in the advising when asked role, a new grand-kimmy - and a busy woman. 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 33 years 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.
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 delightful. It takes incredible strength and the ability to embrace our weaknesses. Being a woman is the most blessed positon in all creation - but being God's woman is the most priveleged.
I believe this so passionately that I write about it, teach about it and speak about it every chance I get.
As a writer, Bible teacher, speaker, and talk radio and podcast host, I share my passion of engaging women in a transforming relationship with God, because from there, everything else makes sense. I've authored five books, written more than 1500 newspaper columns, hosted talk radio for 14 years and traveled the country engaging women with the Word of God and each other. I think humor restores, the Word of God redeems and friendship revives. Those are the things worth sharing - so that is what I share.
