What is the best piece of advice you have been given?
Aside from choosing a relationship with Jesus, I was told that my most important decision would be the person I’d marry. I’m thankful for my husband, whom I’ve been married to for nearly 25 years.
I am wife to Rob, and Mom to 4 kids who are teens and young adults. I am a Licensed Marriage & Family therapist at Lighthouse Christian Counseling, and have been a counselor for more than 20 years. I’m part of the prayer team at our church, and love to see God move in the lives of people.
Why are you passionate about A Friend for You?
A Friend for You is a beautiful way to bless girls and women who are pregnant with a friend and mentor to walk through a time that is sometimes very challenging. In college, I had the privilege of having a mentor-friend, and was truly so thankful to have someone to ask tough questions of, and know she would be honest with me. She shared her own life with me too, and I was blessed through that experience.
I have also had the chance to walk through my own pregnancies, a miscarriage, and have had the opportunity to work with women who have chosen to parent their babies, place their child for adoption, and with those who have chosen abortion. One of my closest friends is an adoptive Mom of three beautiful children. I see God’s fingerprints on all of these situations. He cares for us, sees our needs, and loves us through every moment of our lives with an unconditional love that is sometimes hard to fully grasp as humans.
