She understands what it means to truly wait for God to move in your life, and to trust God beyond what you can see right in front of you.

Her role as mother and teacher to “at risk” high school students has given her a unique perspective on family issues and she has brought her message of God’s reconciliation in her own life to congregations, conferences and women’s groups.
