I should start with the important information first… I am the luckiest woman on the planet.  I have been blessed with many loves in my life.  I have two children that grew in my womb, and two children that have grown in my heart.  In case math is not your best subject either… that’s a grand total of four kids.

I have loved two wonderful men in my life.  I lost my first husband, Lee to a heart attack at the age of 38.  This was a devastating blow that left me and my kids broken.  We loved him, we needed him and we lost him.  But… my God is a God of restoration.  He takes what is broken and makes it new.  

In the spring of 2015 I married my second husband, Gary.  He moved us from Oregon to Chico.  He took us from a family of three to a family of six.  He opened his heart to my broken children and he loves us completely.  


I have known great love and I have known great loss.  But really haven’t we all?

I love many wonderful people and many terrific things. 

However, the greatest love of my life is Jesus.  I hope He’s yours as well.  

If you don’t know Him yet… keep reading.  

If you don’t love Him yet… keep reading.  

If you love Him too… keep sharing.
