I’m so glad you stopped by!
I live in sunny Southern California, with my civil-engineering-general-contracting-guitar-playing husband and my five energetic children (3 boys and 2 girls), ranging in age from 5-17. When I’m not enjoying our homeschooling adventures, I am working as a labor & delivery RN, never tiring of the miracle and wonder of birth!
I’m a lover of heart-felt chats and chai tea lattes– a connector and relator, who can’t wait to hear from you! I spin my days between chaotic kids and newborn cries, groping to find God’s gifts amidst them all.
Over a decade ago, in the aftermath of an affair, Mercy Found Me and I was changed by His grace, and because of His love, I will never be the same.
That’s why I’m so passionate about forgiveness and second chances. And more than anything, I want you to know, regardless of your tragedy–no matter your brokenness or failure … God’s grace is always enough.
I long for you to know, no matter what you’re facing, you are not alone…
I want you to know how Mercy Found Me, and how it can find you too.
Join me amidst my daily missteps and failures where daily rescues me beyond my failing.
Because we all fail. We’re each a mess in our own way. But you must know we can be healed and set free from our guilt and shame, and we can forgive ourselves too, through the freedom, healing and restoration Christ brings.
Join me as I share what I’m learning about life’s road, what I’ve learned from the journey on which I’ve been, and what we can learn together as we travel onward with Him.
Oh and I’d love to welcome you…won’t you join me?
It would be such a privilege to sit awhile with you…
