My Story

At a young age, my parents divorced, and when my dad, without any notice, up and disappeared, I felt abandoned. I was left with a broken heart, feeling unloved, and with no self-worth or self-confidence. Life took me on a crazy journey to find the answer that would feel the emptiness, confusion and confliction. You know the song, "Looking for love in all the wrong places?" That was me, feeding on attention and love any way I could find it.
At the age of 13, I asked Jesus into my heart, but honestly, I had no idea what that meant. So, I tried to be a "good girl" who didn't drink, smoke, cuss, chew, or do drugs. But, looking back, I can see I did not fully surrender my life to Christ. 
I married my college sweetheart at the tender age of 21. We battled through difficult trials and excruciating hard times, but the unbearable suffering of losing a child to cancer wreaked unsalvageable havoc on our marriage, which unfortunately ended in divorce. 

I spent the next several years making one grueling mistake after another. It started with the desperate need to improve myself. Thinking this would fill the never-ending void. I did an outward overhaul on myself, hoping to gain some much-needed self-esteem, but instead, it led me down very ugly, unforeseen paths. With more divorces under my belt, in a time of deep desperation, I realized the world could never fill the void.

What was it going to take to feel peace and regain self-respect? After yet another devasting event, I finally hit rock bottom. Alone, homeless, penniless, and in extreme debt, I was ready to end it all. In the worst moment of my life, I fell on my knees and cried to God to take me away from all the pain. This was the day I thought I had lost everything, but because of God’s grace and sovereign love, it was the day I gained everything. The wretched life I had been living was finally over, and a new creation was born. I was finally free to be the real me. No more masks or pretending to be something I wasn't. I recommitted and fully surrendered my life to Christ that day, and I have never been the same.

The old was gone; the new had come.

With my new-found strength in Christ, I surrendered to the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.

After losing my mom, my best friend, in my most vulnerable moment, the Lord graciously brought my Jr. High School crush back into my life, a wonderful and sincere man of God with whom I felt equally yoked. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine this man would be the one the Lord would let be my happily ever after.

Life has never been so full of hope, love, peace, and joy. The void has been replenished with the sovereignty, forgiveness, and love only Jesus can provide. My world and family are complete, and I proudly stand for Christ in everything I do. My story represents God's sovereign love and forgiveness when a life fully surrenders to Him. It is the only way to find peace on earth and eternity with Christ forever.
