(the informal bio)
A little peek inside my life: First and foremost, I’m a wife and mother of four precious little munchkins. My husband, Eric, is the love of my life. More than sixteen years ago, God scripted an amazing love story for us, and we’ve been in ministry together for most of our married life – writing, speaking, training, discipling, and experiencing the grand adventure of God’s amazing endless frontier. And more recently, we’ve tackled the adventure of raising four sweet little kiddos together – all under age six! Our life – both at home and in our ministry world – is an exciting daily journey of leaning on the faithfulness and grace of our God!
What Moves Me: Making Jesus Christ my all in all, pursuing excellence in my role as wife and mamma, being God’s hands and feet to the fatherless, and inspiring young women down the narrow way of the Cross.
My Passion (in a nutshell): My desire is to challenge young women to find their security and identity in Jesus Christ; to discover Him as the true Prince and Lover of their soul; to realize that He and He alone can meet the deepest needs and longings of the feminine heart. So often we as women look everywhere but Christ, trying desperately to fulfill our desire for love and security through flings with guys, the approval of the world, our popularity status, and the pleasures of pop-culture. But He and He alone can meet the longings of our heart. He desires to be the true Prince of our soul – our all in all. That’s the passion of my personal life as well as the passion that drives all of my books and messages.
A Few of My Favorite Things:
Cuddling with my kiddos
Prayer times with my husband
Worshiping at our baby grand piano
The taste of fresh berries
A sparkling clean kitchen
Warm summer days
Thin-crust cheese pizza
The smell of fresh-cut lilacs
The Rocky Mountains at dusk
