I’m so glad you’re here. I am a Christian wife, special-needs parent and ministry consultant, author and speaker. My passion is to encourage and comfort others with the comfort received from Christ, and to speak up for those who cannot… Not everyone is affected by disability. But whether by a diagnosis, disillusionment, death—or the death of a dream— everyone gets “crippled” by something. No one is exempt from the jagged edges of a broken planet. All believers struggle to reconcile faith with disappointment, grief and loss —unexpected, yet powerful tools for discipleship and spiritual transformation. The greatest gifts can come wrapped in hardship. Brokenness may steal, kill, and destroy indiscriminately. But Jesus is an equal opportunity healer and Redeemer. Thank you for joining me on the journey of being wrecked, redeemed and repurposed.
