I’ve loved Jesus since I was a child.
My parents told me I could talk to Jesus anytime, anywhere, and I believed them. If I made a mistake, I was sent to my room to talk to Jesus about it. He’s seen the best and the worst of me and yet He loves me anyway. He brought Glenn and me together in the early 70's and we're still married! He pursued us when we were lost and rebellious and led us back into the safety of our Father’s spiritual household. Along the way, God blessed us with two extraordinary human beings, a son and daughter. Now we enjoy the blessings of grandchildren and a close family. You might say that Glenn and I are a rare vintage set, rather worn by time (and too many flaws to list) but still together.
I find that my imperfections make me a fit messenger when God calls me to show up. That’s why I love prison ministry and the women of the Ellen Halbert Unit in Burnet, Texas. I’ve seen the Holy Spirit change lives for eternity when we open God’s word together.
Although I still squirm when I must confront my own fears, overcome my own preferences, and question my own opinions, I want to press deeper to seek God’s truth.
That’s why I’m excited about the journey we’ll take together as you read my next book. It starts out with my struggle with pain, but I pray that you will find your story of growth and renewal in it as we follow Jesus into the kingdom.
But enough about me...
God wants to know what’s on your heart…
Oh, how I wish I could hear a little about you. Let’s get connected.
