My Beliefs

When I was 21 years old, about to graduate from college, I sat on a hill overlooking a beautiful lake in Virginia and experienced something that profoundly changed my life. I had grown up in a loving church, with loving parents, and had always believed God existed. I considered myself a “good” person. But that day in Virginia I realized that I’d never grasped what I termed the “Jesus thing” for myself…had never understood why I needed a Savior.(If you’ve ever asked yourself the same type of questions, visit the link below for helpful explanations.)

Years later, I’m a wife to a wonderful husband, a mother to two beautiful children, and enjoy terrific friendships. I’m an author, speaker, policy analyst, ministry worker, and newspaper columnist…but most of all, I know I’m the child of a loving Father.

I’m also very aware of the powerful, life-changing effects that some of my book findings have had in many lives, and I know that that power comes from Someone far beyond myself. Ultimately, I hope my audiences are being touched not primarily by me, but by Him.
