I was born in Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada. I lived most of my early life five miles from a little village called Rosseau, right in the belly of the beautiful Muskoka’s.
I now live in British Columbia.
I have Scottish, German, and English roots which kinda makes me stubborn, strong-willed and passionate! These traits are God created, but apart from Him they are my greatest weakness.
I am celebrating 30 years of marriage in 2017.
I am a mother of three adult children, a mother-in-law and “Nana” to three amazing grandkids.
My greatest passion in life is knowing and loving Jesus Christ through studying the Word of God and prayer.
I am a bit of a solitary, okay kinda a lot of solitary.
I love nature.
I love birds; except Ravens, Crows, Blackbirds, Pigeons and Seagulls; seriously why did God create these annoying creatures?
I love the sound the breeze creates through leafy trees on warm summer days.
I love the haunting echo of the wind through tall Pines on a windy night as I lay resting in my bed.
I love sitting in a canoe in the middle of a mirrored lake and listening to the call of the Loon as evening approaches.
I love the smell of leaves in fall and the sound their dried composition offers me as my feet ramble through them; It reminds me that soon another blanket will fall.
I love the sight of snow-capped mountains against a backdrop of deep blue sky.
I love the sound of the waves upon the golden shores of Hawaii.
I love the smell of the Plumeria flower in Paradise.
I love long quiet mornings with a cup of strong coffee, my bible, journal and the presence of Jesus.
I love reflective quiet evenings sitting by the fire.
I love music!! I love classical, mellow jazz, rock, pop (yes I’m a 80’s girl!) and reflective instrumental movie compositions.
I love to laugh as well as watching others laugh.
My favourite clothes are hoodies, sweatpants and cozy socks.
I love the colour black.
I love reading deep reflective books, biographies of old Saints who embarked on crazy adventures for God, and Agatha Christie novels…mystery is a feast for my mind.
I am a curious kind of girl; I love to ask questions.
I love roller coasters!
My favorite movie(s) is Lord of the Rings; I watch the trilogy at least once a year.
I love the discipline and challenge of physical fitness.
I desire the blessing and privilege of embarking on many more crazy adventures for God even though I am most likely half way through my earthly life.
I have walked many painful valley roads. Roads that were (and are) God’s greatest blessings and kindnesses towards me. I would not have made the discoveries of myself, or of God through His Word had I not chosen to step out in faith and follow Him no matter the cost.
I have ONE hope that is a “sure and steadfast anchor” of my soul and that hope is Jesus Christ.
Because of HIM, I can face every tomorrow that awaits me.
“Adventure is out there!”
