Welcome to the Journey

Welcome to my Journey! Thank you so much for stopping by and joining me for a walk through life. In case you don’t know me, I live in Michigan with my husband of 37 years and surrounded by seven, yes SEVEN, beautiful grandchildren. I’m so thankful my three children decided to stay close (for now) and let us enjoy life together.

My life as a Follower of Jesus started as a late teenager, but the decision to actually FOLLOW Him, came later. This decision has not been an easy one for me as I grew up with many challenges. God has called me His Beloved Daughter and this is my journey to the acceptance of that title. It has impacted every fiber of my being and every part of my journey. My hope is that maybe this will inspire one more to take hold of The Father’s hand and walk with Him, trusting Him for the journey.

Years ago, a counselor encouraged me to write my story for healing purposes. I have not stopped writing…in my private journals…and now I am taking the step to share it with others. This is not an easy task for me. Fear has gripped me over and over again when I decide to be obedient in my writing. But God has a greater purpose…a Kingdom purpose…and that calms my fears.

Recently my husband and I had the opportunity to visit the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. It was a gift like none other to our souls and our journey together. We were facing some decisions…hard decisions…God met us up on the mountains and showed us He is still with us in this more recent journey called Cancer. Our faith has been strengthened as we continued to believe “In His Will, Is Our Peace”. That has been our motto, so to speak, for the past seven years.

So come along with me for a short…or long…walk. Some days it will be a hike up a steep mountain. Other days will be a stroll through a meadow. All I know is God is WITH me (and you) every step of the way. I will trust Him because:

In His Will, Is My Peace
