Real Life

Maybe you’ve already read the “official” bio. That sounds good on paper but all I can say is….GRACE. It is only by God’s grace that I am here today. His providential hand has guided and directed me all these years. It is only by His grace that I can minister to the hearts of my family, friends and community.

The everyday me is…..

~To my very core an encourager. It is what I spend so much of my thoughts on and my time doing; encouraging people to LIVE FULLY.

~Some of those around me call me a food nazi…but really I’m no such thing (smile). I believe in moderation in all things. Yes I eat well 85% of the time but I also like dark chocolate covered almonds and a few JAX cheese curls every now and again (OMG GMO in those cheese curls but they’re so good).

~My husband teases me that I wear a ‘uniform’ because I style my clothes (same colors, style, combinations) the same way all the time. A crisp white button up and slacks with a blazer would be my typical uniform. Well, I recently bought some color and am trying to add some zest to my wardrobe that better matches my energetic personality. Quite frankly, I like my ‘uniform’ and am quite comfortable in it.

~I never thought I’d have 6 children. It is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Children are indeed a blessing and a reward. These little people have made me a better human being.

~My teachers and mentors used to be call me “Little Oprah”.

~In high school and early college I was quite the tomboy. Hah! In hindsight that’s very funny because now I just love being a lady.

~Oh how I love thee…my morning cup o’ joe. Just the ceremony of making coffee and taking that first sip brings a smile to my face.

~I treasure friendships, always have for as long as I can remember. I have been blessed to have a special friendship with one sweetie for over 35 years. I count my friends one of God’s greatest gifts to me. The bible says a friend sticks closer than a brother.

~I thought I’d ask someone who knows me best what they’d say about me and here’s what my hubby had to say…”Beautiful, great health, helpful, pleasant, a great wife and mother, a true homemaker, a business woman, intelligent, a genius, thoughtful, caring, well prepared, consistent, highly motivated, powerful, insightful, a woman’s woman, best friend, great speaker and most of all my BB (inside joke).”

I thank you for visiting this sacred space. I pray you will be encouraged, empowered and edified and INSPIRED!

Come again and tell a friend.
