I’VE BEEN MARRIED TO MY FAVORITE PERSON, BEST FRIEND, AND SOULMATE SINCE 1998...

Our first ten years of matrimony were more like ‘combat training’ than ‘marital bliss’, but we wouldn’t trade that hard-earned education for anything in the world. Besides, we got our three children out of those fiery years. As a family of five, we are living our happily ever after in the Carolinas with my mom, stepdad, and two furry friends.

My husband, aka ‘Captain Courageous’, and I believe in the local church and the discipleship mandate. We have joined together with some incredibly brave men and women to mend hearts and equip the saints. On any given Sunday you will find us among a band of blue polo-clad world changers.
