If I had to describe what I’m authentically about, I guess I’d have to say that it’s in helping wounded hearts receive the restoration that is possible through the transformative love of God. For eight years I served as Chaplaincy Director at The Agape Network in Miami, Florida. This exhilarating and yet sometimes exhausting role allowed me to work closely with hundreds of hurting women who were caught in the painful cycle of severe addiction, many of which were brought on by early childhood trauma. Through the sharing of the glorious gospel and the principles of God’s Kingdom, many women experienced freedom, both spiritually and emotionally! I’ve been honored, and humbled, to have been a featured speaker at many women’s conferences and weekend retreats. My love for God’s Word has positioned me to be considered a knowledgeable bible study teacher and I have served as a guest speaker at many churches. An honor indeed! On the creative side, I have had the joy of being a co-founder for two very successful women’s ministries. In my church life, I have served as an elder to its women, a grief counselor for many years in a bereavement ministry aptly named Beauty from Ashes, served as teacher in various parenting classes, and co-taught alongside many fine teachers. As an author, I love to tell stories that inspire greater hope and faith. Over the past 15 years I have written hundreds of newsletters and recently self-published two books, The Master Gardener and A Broken-Winged Eagle.
At its epicenter I can say that my life’s core values are centered on faith, peace and beauty.
