When my first child was born 20 plus years ago, I envisioned taking just a few years off from my role as Pastor of Youth and Family. While that didn’t exactly unfold as expected, God used my gifts and skills in other ways. In all things, I desire to make my life available for partnering in Jesus’ Kingdom work of making this place “on earth as it is in Heaven.”
Living in the south suburbs of Chicago, I am a wife and mother to three young adults. I find fulfillment in substitute teaching Junior High and High School students, mental health advocacy, writing, and preaching. My pieces have been featured on various sites including Her View From Home, Crosswalk, The Mudroom Blog, The Mighty, and the Redbud Post. Scroll below to view my portfolio. In addition, I am a member of the Redbud Writer’s Guild.
A few of my favorite things include reading, baking, anything historical fiction, and exploring beach towns.
