More About Me
I have been Rick’s wife for 26 years now, and we have three beautiful daughters: Amanda, Kayla, and Marissa. Amanda and Kayla are both college students, and Marissa is a sophomore in high school. We live in the country with a menagerie of farm animals including 2 horses, 2 full sized donkeys, 2 miniature donkeys, 6 cows, 2 goats, 6 chickens, 2 geese, 2 labs, 1 miniature dachshund, and 1 basset hound, (and I’m sure there is a partridge in a pear tree somewhere in there).
I graduated in May 2015, from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, with a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies. That was an adventure in itself considering that I had never before gone to college and I was embarking on this new adventure at the age of 39. However, I clearly heard the Lord telling me this was the next step. So, I stepped out in obedience and it was one of the hardest, yet most rewarding experiences of my life.
My life has certainly been a series of ups and downs, and nowhere near perfect. However, because of the trials (some because of my own poor choices, some not), I have come to know the vast love, grace, mercy, and forgiveness of my Heavenly Daddy. I have learned what it means to move from a faith that is merely based on head knowledge, to one that is an intimate relationship of the heart. I have learned that though my sins are forgiven, I will still suffer some of the consequences of those sins. I have learned that being a mom is the most exhilarating, exhausting, rewarding, heart-wrenching job of my life. I have learned that marriage is something that must be nurtured on a daily basis, and when neglected I have seen how quickly Satan can move in to destroy. Like I said, my life has not been perfect, but I am confident in the fact that I serve a perfect God and that because of the shedding of His blood for my sins, He sees me as righteous and pure.
My desire is to share with other women how they too can experience this intimate relationship. How they too can become better Reflections of Him!!
