If you’re looking for fresh thoughts on church & culture and spiritual growth, and also Christian parenting, you’re in the right place.
I started this blog in June of 2013 to articulate what I’m learning about life and God and his people. More and more, I’m focusing on what theologians call the imago Dei.
Given today’s confusion about personal identity, Christians must proclaim this core truth more boldly than ever before—that human beings are created in the image of God. He made us, he loves us, and he alone can rescue us from sin and its effects.
For more on human identity and purpose, subscribe to my newsletter and you’ll receive a free eBook called “Reclaiming Human Identity.” Enjoy!
I earned my B.A. in Social Science at Bethany Bible College (later Bethany University). I met my husband Scott while working at Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center. We’ve been married for 35 years and have three married sons and six grandchildren (so far).
(This May 2018 photo will be updated soon…it’s hard to get the whole clan together!)
After home schooling our sons, I spent ten years helping women and couples distressed by unplanned pregnancies at my local pregnancy help center.
I’m a Board Certified Biblical Counselor with the Board of Christian Professional and Pastoral Counselors, and I hope to begin working on a graduate degree in Theological Studies soon.
