A Little Bit About Me

Before landing in the Chicagoland area, I enjoyed growing up in different parts of the country, including Las Cruces, New Mexico, my birthplace. I live out my passion for helping others experience a deeper relationship with Jesus by offering spiritual direction from my lakefront home and authoring books about my own personal stories of struggle and joy.


In my free time, I enjoy quilting and playing jazz saxophone. Swimming and floating on the lake are also a relaxing way to enjoy what brings me life. I delight in time spent with Sean, my wonderful husband of 36 years, as well as my two beautiful daughters, Ashley and Shannon, and their husbands, Elliot and Tom. Now, we have our first grand baby named Piper! She is so precious!

Me at nine years old - the age of my first remembrances of God in my life.

Writing in my journal has been a foundation for my relationship with God.
