About Me

Welcome, Y’All I am so happy to have you here.

I am a true Texan, born in Amarillo and calling Austin, TX home since 1991.  I relish meeting people and then connecting them.  Other hobbies include: traveling, learning, reading, exercising but mostly walking, and chillin with my family.  I enjoy third wave coffee, good food, and red wine. My real passion is encouraging others and I have had the opportunity to do this through speaking and writing.  As a certified Life Breakthrough Coach, allowing me to help others gain clarity about the present, define their future, and overcome obstacles preventing them from accomplishing their goals.

It’s an honor and privilege to share my heart and wisdom via writing over at More to Be, I Take Joy, The Art of Domesticity and elsewhere.  I’ve have spoken at MOPS, Mom to Mom, women’s gatherings and church retreats.  I welcome the opportunity to share.

I married my best friend, Jon in 1985. We met in college.  By God’s grace, we were saved in 1987 during a home visitation at the same time.  Jon is an eternal optimist, entrepreneur and easy going. Together we do premarital mentoring and marital coaching. Equipping and encouraging families brings us much joy as legacies are changed.  We have three daughters (1988, 1991, and 2001).

Today there are many opportunities clamoring for our attention so we must be purposeful knowing the legacy we desire to leave behind.  Blogging is an opportunity for me to share what I’ve learned along my journey. My hope is to encourage, equip, and inspire you.

    I read your article on “Anger is only one letter short from Danger”
    I teach a Christian anger management course in Alberta, Canada and I am hoping to use the article/exerpts from it (referencing you) in my course. Would you kindly give me permission to do so?
