About Me

family-photo-2015

I was born and raised a missionary kid on the island of Luzon in the Philippines for the first fifteen years of my life.  As a kid, you could always hear talk of things like “Jesus,” “heaven,” “hell,” “grace” and “sin” floating around our house.  One day I asked my parents how I could be sure that I wouldn’t go to hell when I died.  I can still remember sitting on my father’s lap, holding his hand in the yellow lamplight and listening to him tell me the story of the gospel.  With the faith of a child, I surrendered my whole life to Jesus in exchange for His forgiveness and salvation.

Years later my faith would be sorely tested as I transitioned off the mission field and back to the United States.  At the time I would’ve gladly re-written the story of my life, but looking back I am so thankful for God’s sovereignty.  Coming to the US not only shaped who I am, it allowed me to meet my husband, Clint, and to have four beautiful daughters with him.

In 2012 I started blogging about motherhood, and eventually my blog turned into a book.  Currently, I write for the True Woman blog, over at Revive Our Hearts.  In October 2017, my latest book Hiding in the Hallway, written specifically for missionary kids, will be available for purchase!
