I’m a born again Christian, growing in my faith and life as a believer day by day. I am so thankful to the Lord for His sacrifice for me so I could be free from sin and death and live freely for Christ. I am nothing without the Lord and am more than a conqueror through Him. It’s an amazing journey as a believer!
I have been married to my very caring and devoted husband for almost 17 years and we have four wonderful (and sometimes wild) kids here and one little butterfly in heaven. I love my family very much and what a blessing they are to my life!
Along this amazing journey, God encourages me with new songs that strengthen me and bless me. He puts the words and music on my heart – no charge, no cost – just free gifts that bless and encourage me, many times when I am in great need of that encouragement. My prayer and hope is that these songs would bless and encourage the Body of Christ as I share them, delivering them to believers the same way God gave them to me: freely.
In 2012, I experienced a complete health collapse and was on death’s doorstep. I’ve gone from being bedridden and hardly having the strength to stand, to being able to do so many things that I took for granted. And I can hold my little ones again! I really missed that! God is good and even though the road to recovery has been difficult, He has been ever faithful and gracious.
Coming face-to-face with death changed the way I look at life. It made me reevaluate so many things. Which brings me to the here and now. In the years prior to my illness, songwriting had become something that was on the very, very back burner. I had so many other things that kept me busy and were important to me. I let songwriting go for the most part and wasn’t actively sharing what was already written with anyone really. After getting so sick, songwriting is one of the things God touched my heart about. I don’t want to hoard songs that have been such an encouragement to me and keep them to myself. I really want to reach others with the messages of encouragement God has given to me through these songs. My prayer is that they bless you and encourage you in your walk with the Lord.
Please keep me in your prayers as I am not fully recovered. I’ve come a long way and have improved so much, but this is still something I’m walking through and dealing with. I am very thankful to be alive, recognizing that life is so very fragile and a precious gift that I have taken for granted and still do. No part of our life – our heartbeat, our breath, our strength, or even our sleep – is dependent upon us. We are completely and utterly dependent on our Creator God and we belong to Him. Please pray that God’s will be done in my life, whether that be complete restoration of my health or staying in a weakened state. Whatever it may be, I want to have a heart of contentment and gratefulness. Pray that God would give me the grace to accept His will, even if it is not what I would like.
Thank you for visiting my website. I pray that it is an encouragement to you.
Blessings and peace to you through Christ Jesus,
