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.

A Heritage of Faith

A heritage of faith

To live is Christ,
to die is gain.
To live for anything else
would mean to die in vain.
When I leave this world behind
What will others say of me?
Will my life even compare
To my grandpa’s legacy?
A life lived on purpose
A man of fervent prayer
So captivated and compelled
To share Christ everywhere.
He loved his family deeply,
and he knew what mattered most.
He lived every day for Jesus,
his one and only boast.
Today he celebrates in Heaven,
face to face with his Lord.
He gave his life to Christ
and now gained his reward.
I already miss him dearly,
but I’m so grateful to claim
the heritage of faith

that he leaves behind his name.

Philippians 1:21
21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

I want to live like that. (Sidewalk Prophets)
