About Me

Residing in Northwestern Ohio, I am first and foremost, an idealist. I imagine a world where every individual knows they were created for a unique purpose and is fervently loved by the same Lord that breathed the mountains into being and painted the sunsets with his touch.  With that understanding, my hope is that those individuals will develop healthy, life-giving relationships with others forming families and communities that cherish, encourage, and accept each other.

I have my bachelors and masters degrees in Human Development and Family Relations from The Ohio State University and Bowling Green State University, respectively. I currently write curriculum and teach classes and the University of Colorado-Denver.

My passions are my love for my husband, my joy in my children, and ministry. Everyday I feel called to live according to the Bible and the life of Jesus Christ, which sets believers apart from our fallen culture, even if this makes me look odd and even a bit crazy.

I enjoy writing and sharing what the Lord is teaching me. I dream about one day becoming the vessel through which the Lord touches women's lives and lets them know they are loved, they are cherished, they are remembered, and they are not alone.

I have authored three Inspirational Romance novels which tell the tales of men and women overcoming obstacles in life and finding the love that has thus-far eluded them, all while strengthening their faith in God.

I also manage the website, Christian Family Resource Management, and corresponding facebook page which incorporates biblical wisdom and scholarly research in Human Development and Family Relations in order to help families thrive.
