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.

God's timing, not mine

As I read through my Bible study this week in preparation to teach (Living Beyond Yourself by Beth Moore), I came across something I'd written in it nearly fourteen years ago that touched my heart. 

Question:  In what area of your life are you most needing to trust in God's faithfulness right now?

My answer: My desire to be a mommy, both naturally and by adoption

 (Within a year or two later, God gave us David, naturally.  We waited nearly 12 more years after that before God officially gave us Juan David, by adoption.)

Trust in His faithfulness.  If He put the desire in your heart, He will be faithful to give it to you. 

Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
