About Me

I grew up in South Carolina, the oldest of four and the only girl. After college I was a special education teacher for nine years, and loved it. At age 29, I ran into Terrell at a  fitness center. (The last time we saw each other was when we met as 7th graders!) We became friends and a year later both of us were surprised to realize our feelings for each other had changed. We got married and within three years had three children.

In our first year of marriage, Terrell gave me my first Bible. As I read it, my view of God, me, everyone else, my purposes, and how to approach living the ordinary day changed. Not all at once, of course. I’m still very much a work in progress! I’ve grown to realize how lovingly and patiently God has walked with me through my messy life.

Connecting others to Jesus and helping them learn how to partner with him in their everyday life energizes me.

Writing is an extension of this passion. In this blog, I love to share my heart with you . . . what I’ve learned and what I’m learning as I consider the scriptures, who God is, and how he wants us to live the precious days he gives us. It’s amazing how his truths apply at every age and stage of life. I hope you’re encouraged as you spend time here today.

Our family! Terrell lll, Cecilia, my husband Terrell, the love of my life and a pastor for 30+ years; Carter and Ellison. These are my favorite people on this earth.

What do I like to do?  Cook and then linger long at the table in conversation, take brisk walks, spend time with friends, travel, and garden. I’m trying to like chocolate less, but it’s not happening.
