“Come on down!”
As a child I had done a “paint by number” picture of Jesus. Every night I put the picture out and asked him to come and get it. Every morning it was still there. After about a week or so, I gave up and put it away.
My family was not into Christianity. Instead I was raised in a faith that promoted thoughtful dialogue and responsibility for oneself. But as time went on, I wanted more.
One day, when I was a newly elected City Council member, my life changed. The mayor encouraged me to read a list of Bible verses. Several weeks later, on the day when daylight savings time ended, I had an extra hour and decided to go to church. I was hooked! I was back the next week and very rarely missed a Sunday after that.
Fast Forward Several Years
My husband, Calvin, and I have had a terrific time in ministry together. We were thrilled to see our articles appear in national publications including Pulpit Helps, The Lutheran Digest, Evangel, the Godly Business Woman, and Quaker Life. We also presented lots of retreats and I enjoyed traveling around the country telling my spiritual story to women’s groups.
These days I enjoy expressing my faith in a special way through my daily devotionals for women. It is my joy to comfort, inspire, and guide others on their own spiritual journey.
Calvin and I have four children and are happy empty-nesters. We enjoy the mountain scenery at our Colorado home.
