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.
