I have a passion to see women set free to live in the powerful truths of who they are in Christ and the love of God. My greatest joy is being a wife and mother of two adult children – Chris and Joanna. My favorite hobbies are hanging out at coffee shops with my family and friends, traveling, walking my dog, and taking hikes in nature.

I have served with Cru since 1981 and spent twenty-five years as a missionary in Asia. Currently, I travel to minister to women throughout Asia, Africa, Europe, the South Pacific, the Middle East, and the U.S. I have a Master’s of Education from the University of Hawaii and a Master’s of Christian Counseling from Philadelphia Biblical University. I am the author of several books including Crown of Beauty Twelve Week Bible StudyFor Such a Time as This, and Broken but Undefeated.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
