About Me

My photo

I am a wife, daughter, mother, bilingual teacher, poet, author, women's Bible study teacher, world traveler, orphan advocate, and an adoptive mother.  Our adoption journey has been filled with a lot of hurt and loss, along with even more hope, grace, and healing.  Through it we have experienced more of God than we ever bargained for and have watched Him miraculously redeem our story when we surrendered all the broken pieces to Him.

My top ten favorite quotes from Fresh Grounded Faith

Jennifer Rothschild said it's not a sermon or message that changes our lives.  It's usually a sentence.  So she encouraged us to take note of certain simple sentences that stood out to us.  Here are my top ten I heard over the weekend at the conference.  
  • "It's not the prayer, it's the power in the prayer." (Stormie Omartian)
  • "It's not what you do in life, it's Who you know." (Stormie Omartian)
  • "Wherever we're locked up, Jesus has the keys." (Stormie Omartian)
  • Change me, Lord. "It's not about who needs to be changed, it's about being willing to be changed." (Stormie Omartian)
  • "Dependent life is liberating, not stifling!" (Stormie Omartian)
  • "We're in the dark until we reach up and find His light in the darkness.  The treasure in the dark is Him and His presence." (Stormie Omartian)
  • "While the wilderness may seem nowhere at the time, it's somewhere if it's where you're supposed to be." (Stormie Omartian)
  •  "We will not go gutsy unless we personalize the presence of God.  You'll never be able to act according to the power of the Lord." (Jennifer Rothschild)
  • "God's companionship will come in the form of His word as you study it with other women." (Jennifer Rothschild)
  • "Answers don't bring satisfaction.  Only an encounter with God does." (Jennifer Rothschild)
