I married my high school sweetheart in 1973 after moving from a Maryland suburb of Washington, DC to northern Virginia.  Little did I know the future the Lord had in store for me.  My husband, Benny, started and pastored Fairfax Covenant Church (now Sovereign Grace Church of Fairfax) for 20 years until our move to Orlando, FL thirteen years ago.  After serving on the pastoral team at Metro Life Church he was sent with a team of wonderful folks in January 2012 to Lake Nona, Florida to start Redeemer Church.

In nearly 41 years years together God has blessed us with 7 children and 14 grandchildren who all live closeby. Our lives are full of delightful (and loud!) opportunities to spend time with them. I’m amazed at God’s kindness to heal this formerly infertile woman and make her “the joyful mother of children”…and now, grandchildren.

Some years back I did quite a bit of writing but set that aside to devote myself to my growing family. This blog is my venture back into the world of opening up my life on page.

Though there have been “many dangers, toils and snares” over the past few decades, there have also been countless joyous moments that took my breath away. God was there for each. You’ll probably read about a lot of it over time when you visit.

I pray that every one who happens upon this little blog will find the hope the gospel has brought to my ever expanding and changing world.

    • Thank you Jeanne! Please know I would eagerly welcome your thoughts about what specifically you like so I can keep doing that 🙂 along with any suggestions or ideas along the way. I love interacting with readers and gleaning from their thoughts. I noticed you have a blog and will be visiting it soon.

      Many blessings!

  1. I have a question. Did your children as young adults go through a time of separating and even rejecting you as they established their own, independent walk with God apart from you?

  2. Anne, that’s a great question. We have gone through some tough things as parents that we now look back on as a couple of our kids (sometimes prematurely) working through their desire for a level of independence. It was hard on us at times! Partly because we wanted to remain in control 🙂 and, yes, sometimes it felt like rejection! Is this something you are walking through? If so, I pray God gives you the comfort and courage needed to walk this often rocky road knowing He is with you and your kids. He is faithful and will always have His way in their lives!
