Here are some things I really like…
Ice-cream (the fattening kind), soup on a cold day, candles, new shoes, sunshine, family and friends, funny people, a cogent argument, truth, history, the sermons of Charles Spurgeon, passion in action, teaching, decorating, gardening, the color green, a bargain, her Bible.
Here are some things I really dislike…
Baby shower games, mean people, hot peppers, airports, plastic flowers, liars, death in any form, willful ignorance, telemarketing calls, bad hair, feminism that doesn’t help women and emasculates men, unpatriotic attitudes, legalism, evil, fake butter, ironing.
A few more personal facts…
Growing up, did you have it together? I didn’t. I was a good student and a happy kid, but was naïve about relationships. I was taller than most guys and my friends were all the homecoming queens, so I worked on my personality! My first and only boyfriend is my husband who I met in Bible school in Europe when I was 19. He happened to live 15 minutes away from my home in Seattle! So how did someone who felt somewhat awkward and was uncomfortable even saying the word sex end up teaching about it? Only God knows! I am still surprised at how God works in our lives. Likely you have been surprised by God in some way as well.
Along with many years of youth, family and marriage ministry, our five fabulous kids were the motivation to find answers on relationship truth when we were starting out as parents. Now 16 grandkids ignite still more passion for grace-filled ways to love God and love others. There have been many years of exciting ministry adventures along with life experiences that I hope to share with you over time.
If there is any way I can serve you, encourage you or remind you that you are made in God’s image, please allow me to do so! You have dignity and worth, straight from the throne of God! You are a man or woman of incredible value. If you struggle at times to believe this, remember this truth cannot be changed by your choices, your story, your wounds or others lies. Your worth is secured in God’s “reality” because He created you. Let’s walk together in God’s grace and experience the fullness of His power in and through us, as we learn together about the truth of His prescriptions for relationships and sexuality.
I am humbled you chose to visit, thank you!
