About Me

Oh, this is tough. Who likes to write about themselves?

First, I’m a born-again Christian. I know that’s redundant, but in today’s American culture, there are many who profess to be Christians yet are not born again. I know from experience. I was one of them. You can read my testimony here.

I’m also a wife, mom, and grammy to one (so far). My husband and I have nine awesome kids, ages twenty-eight to six. We’ve been homeschooling since my oldest was in second grade, with five graduates down.

In my spare time, I run my own editorial services business. I’m a freelance editor, proofreader, and indexer. I also make my own tracts. One of my favorites I like to distribute comes from this post.

I’m an amillennialist who believes in the doctrines of grace and believer’s baptism. I’ve been called a mystic because of my intense desire to love, think often of, and make much of Christ. But I know what real mysticism is, and I know what New Ageism is—and who their author is—and I stay far away from both (yes, I have experience in that area—again, read my testimony).

My desire is to worship in spirit and truth (John 4:23-24). In other words, I seek holiness in my life (yes, I have been called a legalist as well) and usually know when I grieve the Holy Spirit with my sin. I just cannot do what most other Christians seem to be able to do. I desire that deep, deep relationship with Christ that comes when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, as we’re commanded to do in Ephesians 5:18. He’s awesomely powerful—if you surrender yourself to Him and allow Him to control your life. No weirdness or gold dust here though. And I don’t speak in tongues, although I do desire to prophesy and, most of all, to love.

I’ve thought a long time about writing a blog, but it was never the right time. Then, one day, it was. So here I am, entering the world of blogging, so that women may be encouraged to think much of Christ, to seek holiness in their own lives, and to bring the gospel to others. I pray that what I write may bring glory to God always.
