Leaving a legacy as you raise your kids

Make memories that can last a lifetime

As a mom of two teens, I know that my time with them is short. In fact, they are on the runway of life about to take off. Memories warm you up on the inside. They make our lives so much more vibrant. I’ve come up with a formula for making a memory. Let me know what you think.

Grit can grow giant killers

Grit: four little letters that can make a huge difference in your life. You know you have to stand up and take notice when this word seems to be appearing in so many different places. Recently, an email popped up about blog I follow called Grit & Virtue, then I picked up a book with the title, Grit, at a tiny airport book shop in Mombasa, Kenya and I also received a pair of socks from the Grit & Grace range.

Think right, live right

Have you thought about what you think about? Your thoughts are powerful. They can impact your life and make all the difference in how you live. The thoughts we believe and entertain have the power to shape our emotions, our attitudes, our words, and our actions.

A bit about me

Family means the world to me; they’re my biggest win. I’m happily married to Neil. We’ve been together for over 20 years, and our children are now teenagers. We think that every stage of parenting is the best phase.

Peoples and nations of the world inspire me. Having travelled and ministered in many different countries, I continue to dream of going to new places. As a family, church planting and missions have been part of our life for over a decade. Through Neil, I’ve learned to seek beauty wherever I go.

Two of my values include living authentically and transparently. My heart continues to expand to see individuals, marriages, families, and communities transformed by love.
