I’m so glad you’re here! In case we haven’t met, here’s a little about me: to my favorite place to be is on the lake or in the North Carolina mountains with my family or friends. I met my husband, J.J., while he was in college at Virginia Tech. We were best friends by the time we started dating in December 1992 and we got married the following September, 1993.
We have three children, two daughters-in-love and two fur babies: Our son Josh (27) and his wife Brandi, our son Andrew (24) and his wife Hannah Rose and our daughter Aster (13), who we adopted from Ethiopia when she was a baby.
My official bio says I’m an author, conference speaker, former executive director and radio co-host with Proverbs 31 Ministries, and a writer for (in)Courage (a division of DaySpring). But those who know me well would tell you I am a people-loving, adventure-seeking friend and mom who loves Jesus, her family and being outside. They might also mention I can be a mess and have been known to take my dogs medicine (accidentally) and call the fire department more than once.
My passion is to encourage and equip women, moms, and girls to overcome self-doubt and live in the fullness of their God-given purpose, gifts, and potential, roles and relationships—and empower them with courage and confidence to make a difference right where they are, with what they already have
