I am a nature lover. I love the outdoors. My husband and I love to hike. There is so much of Gods beauty around us we just have to look.
I also love to draw, collect rocks, garden and I love animals too!
I'm passionate about...
Witnessing to others about The Lord. I have had the privilege on several occasions to open up and let The Lord speak through me to unsaved and every time has turned out to be time for celebration !
I also have a passion for single Moms. God has put this passion on both my husbands heart and myself and opened opportunities to serve single moms who are struggling . We are blessed to be able to do what we have.
My story with God
Many years ago I had made life choices that had me in a very bad place in life....a life of abuse, addiction and pain. I never understood how much Jesus loves me but instead blamed him for the trouble in my life , after all he is God and he should make my life good right? That was my way of thinking back then. On day when things were at its very worst I said to him.... If your real then you should not let me have this terrible life, you should make things good for me but you don't. I see you don't care about me so I'm never having anything to do with you again ( like I ever did in the first place) . At that moment I remember I felt so heavy hearted and guilty but I could also feel him tell me it's ok I will be getting you through this. I shut down. I decided to do my best at not feeling any kind of emotion because I just had enough of hurt. Looking back I know now that The Lord was hot on my trail, thank you Jesus. It took years and many heartaches after that to bring me to the end of myself. I was going through a devastating divorce and I would talk to a gal at work about how terrible my life was. I didn't know her to well but she was very nice and would always listen to me. She never voiced opinions about things I told her she just was kind. One day as I went on about my horrible life she stopped me and said " do you know what you need?" I though oh she was going to invite me to go to a bar or something and asked "what" she said " you need Jesus" wow it just about knocked me off my feet seriously I felt faint. She then handed me a piece of paper and said this was her church. She asked if I would just go 3 times and that's it. She asked if I would do that for her. I said I would think about it. I thought to myself " what good is that going to do?" It took a couple of months and carrying this piece of paper around with me everywhere I went....looking at it....thinking about it when finally I thought oh well I will just go and see. It was a spirit filled church. Never been to one before. I watched people who appeared to be happy and thought they were fakes. Nobody could be happy like that. I felt thought I should go through with the 3times as my friend requested. Each time I saw the same happy people and just couldn't understand why they were so happy. Week 4. My heart began to soften . I looked at these happy people and cried. I thought " I want to feel happy, I want what they have". I could not stop crying. I listened to the pastor talk again about salvation as he did every week I had been there and he called the unsaved to prayer. I remember thinking to myself... Gee I don't know if I should....I'm scarred God won't want me.... And all of a sudden I saw his face right in front of me! There he was! The Lord Almighty! i pretty sure he knew he had to get right in my face to get my full attention.I was very afraid, my heart was pounding so hard and I said it. I said to him " I want you in my life , please save me". I prayed along with the pastor and since that day nothing has been the same. He is always so patient with me, he waited for me and lead me home to him, where I belong. Now each day is a new adventure. Sometimes good and sometimes not so good but I know he is with me every step of the way guiding me and protecting me. He helps me to grow in my walk with him and as blessed me beyond belief time and time again. thats my story. All i know us I love Jesus and he loves me.
Other stuff about me:
I was recently diagnosed with cancer but i now I'm safe. The enemy wants to try scar me so as you know its a war every day. I know that The Lord has used this to make some very necessary changes in my life. I owned a business and was allowing it to consume my life. I closed up shop. Thank you Jesus for stepping in and saying enough. I now get to spend lots of time with my wonderful supportive husband. He is an amazing person and I love him so much. I have time now for others. The way I look at this cancer thing is its a win win situation. I go home to The Lord ...I win. The Lord heals my body... I win. I have requested him to allow me to stay and serve him in whatever way he wants. I'm just waiting because ever time I ask him what I can do for him he tells me " wait" and has told me to get my house in order. Im sure he wants me to work through a few issues that I carry. So that's what I'm doing with his council and direction.
