I was busy raising five children and studying for a PhD in Bioethics when incredible tragedy and miraculous glory simultaneously struck my life. It happened when my late husband Bernie suffered a massive heart attack and had a near death experience—then came back from “the dead” to tell me about it. His long stay in the ICU, profound conversion and beautiful, holy death—and its impact on my own spiritual life–prompted me to write the book, Miracle Man. That opened up a new path in my life as a writer, blogger and inspirational speaker. Who knew??? Well…. God did!
This “new” path incorporates the things I’ve learned and done in the past with what I’m learning and doing now. I’ve been a wife, mother, grandmother, widow, theologian, author and newlywed—and now pastoral counselor. Life has taught its lessons; lessons I hope to share with you through my musings on the spiritual life. You can read about them here, or I can come visit your group, conference or parish personally. My stories are sure to give you a shot in the arm of faith and hope. And remind you of God’s amazing, faithful love!
Don’t let the words “bioethics” or “theologian” scare you off:) The important stuff I’ve learned has been studied in the school of suffering, and committed to memory in the fields of redemption and restoration. This is the education I count as most precious, because it’s what brought my heart HOPE. Hope that I’d love to share with you.
Take some time to look around my website, read my blog, and–if you want to read a story that will knock your socks off–order my book. (God worked the miracles, I just wrote them down!) And get in touch with me so we can journey on this path of faith and hope together, sister to sister, and friend to friend.
