Things I “hang on to”…

 

My-Husband

 

My husband Adam is truly my best friend. He is currently retired and spends most of his time working alongside me, encouraging me in this new journey of “authorhood”. He is my manager, chauffeur, social media director, event planner, bookkeeper and #1 fan. Besides the Lord and his family, his other two great loves are sports and music. The Denver Broncos, St. Louis Cardinals, Earth Wind & Fire and Kenny Loggins top his list. And for good measure we squabble over who is the GOAT (greatest of all time), Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal. I am constantly amazed at his humility and how the Lord continues to work in his life.

 

My-Kids

 

I have been blessed like no other mom I know with three amazing sons. They have all grown into godly young men. Our oldest, Kenny, recently got married to his wife Kristi. He also just completed his Master’s Degree and Teaching Credential and is planning to be a Middle School Math Teacher (Lord help him!) Our middle son Brendan just returned to the desert from living up in Seattle to work at a prestigious local art gallery as a preparator. He is also a gifted artist in his own right. Our youngest son Tyler is currently a senior at UCLA majoring in Aerospace Engineering. He is also President of the Christian fraternity Alpha Gamma Omega on campus. To say I am one proud mama wound be an understatement but mostly for one reason…3 John 4: I have no great joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

My-Everyday-Life

 

Day to day I work part time from home as a medical transcriptionist. I have been doing this for the past 18 years and feel fortunate I was able to work from home the majority of time my boys were growing up. Now that they are grown and out on their own it’s just Adam & I and Rafa, our adorable shih poo. We like to play tennis as often as we can, watch “Fixer Upper” and are totally into March Madness and college football. We are passionate about serving those in the body however we can that are struggling in their marriages to bring them the hope found in Jesus Christ. I also started a weekly ministry for the women in my church called Wives in Touch, similar to Moms in Touch, that meets weekly to pray for one hour for our husbands and marriages.
