Finding the faithfulness of God comes when you have experienced challenges in life and His faithfulness becomes your only lifeline!

I have discovered this truth as my modern-day Cinderella story is a testimony of His faithfulness.

Even still He has given me opportunities to come alongside women who have been wounded by the church or other traumatic life experiences. Together we find healing through the power of God’s Word and His Spirit.

God continues to use me as I create the space where people can tell their stories and publish them with excellence. Podcasting, writing, speaking, and teaching also fill my days as the wife of a pastor in the small town where we live.

Join me on my about page and let’s get to know each other better!

Together for a Purpose

A unique story of two seasoned travelers who find each other and marry later in life is told from two viewpoints with openness and candor …

This engaging and often humorous narrative written by a high-powered Christian woman publisher and a ready-for-retirement widowed pastor deals with change and criticism, blended families, issues of compatibility, and meshing as a couple.

More than just a love story, this growing-in-faith story touches on what we all long for—belonging, being loved for who we are, and finding a place of service to God and purpose in our everyday lives.

Includes questions for couples or small groups.

Athena & Ross

Full Circle

In the aftermath of spiritual abuse and toxic leadership, one woman’s shattered life is restored by the faithfulness of God. Athena’s driving desire for affirmation and attention pulled her away from her family, husband, and children into what she thought would bring happiness. Deceived by Scientology, forays into mysticism, and twelve years in a restrictive and legalistic cult, she lost everything - her marriage, relationships, home, business, money, and reputation. This is the candid and inspirational story of how her eyes were opened, how God restored what had been lost, and gave her the desires of her heart, including a new love.
