Several years ago, God gave me the word “joy” and set me on a journey of learning what His definition of the word is. He had ushered me into a very difficult season of unknowns and loss and I was desperate to find relief. That relief came in a very different way than I envisioned. It’s been a long, quiet, difficult few years of learning how to experience biblical joy, but He has been right by my side and He has faithfully been showing me Himself and helping me to understand what it means to fight for biblical joy. I am so grateful!
I am passionate about this topic because I believe that, in order to be able to persevere in our faith, for a lifetime, we MUST know how to fight for biblical joy. Why do I say FIGHT for biblical joy? Because we are in a daily battle with the enemy of our souls, but God has given us what we need to be able to fight. I want to help you learn how to fight for joy so that you can persevere in your faith FOR A LIFETIME!
MEET MY FAMLY
Brian and I have been married for almost 35 years. We met when I was in college and Brian was in seminary. When we first met, Brian told me he was “here to study, NOT date!” A few months later we began dating and 2 years later we were married! We are now enjoying “the empty nest” season and love being able to spend more time together!
My 2 kids are grown and married and they both live close to me, right outside of Washington DC. I am so thankful that we are able to see each other on a regular basis. The transition from having kids at home to them marrying and becoming their own family unit has been a learning process, one I am still in. I haven’t done things perfectly but they have been very patient with me and we have gotten into a good rhythm. We are continuing to learn how we fit into each other’s lives.
I love coming alongside others, young and old, to help them find strength in God (1 Samuel 23:16), to proclaim God’s faithfulness (Psalms 89:1), to encourage one another (1 Thessalonians 5:11), to help each other persevere, one day at a time, and find biblical joy (Hebrews 12:2), and to learn from each other (1 Corinthians 11:1)!
