I received my BFA in Creative Writing at Southwest Minnesota State University in 1996. A few months later I married my husband. I gave up writing for about ten years to start a family. In 2004 at the prompting of a friend, I started a Mom's group at church. Discontented with the Bible studies available, I wrote my own. I've been writing and teaching Bible studies ever since.
In addition to authoring two books and writing a devotional blog, I also enjoy teaching seminars to women with the intention of bringing the Bible to life in tangible, applicable ways.
I'm most thankful for my house full of blessings: my husband, four children, white dog and black cat.
