About the Author


I enjoyed a wonderful career as a Registered Nurse for 30 years. Nursing is a wonderful career if you like to try new things, and I did! But I said goodbye to nursing a while back. It was something I never expected to do, but when the opportunity came along for me to begin a new journey, I took the leap!

Now it is my joy to serve as Foundational Studies Department Chair at Highlands College, a biblical higher education institution that exists to supply the church with leaders to fulfill the Great Commission. In addition to Dept. Chair, I get to teach students in the Social Sciences. The best part is that I get to work with my husband, Matthew, every day! We have four wonderful adult children and two amazing daughters-in-love!

I also lead women’s small groups for women who are sending their kids off to college and for women who are becoming MILs. Those are tricky paths, and it’s better to walk them with a friend!

Writing is my secret passion. Mostly I write about everyday epiphanies. Those moments in the shower (it’s surprising how often God wants to talk to me in the shower), or in conversations, or in the midst of living life that God taps me on the shoulder, and suggests I get a clue. Sometimes I actually do, and when I do, I try to write it down so I won’t forget it. Cracked Pot Pieces is an outpouring of those moments when I draw a little closer to God.

I hope you find yourself identifying with the posts as you read them here. We can and need to walk this life together, and follow after the God who loves us like crazy. I hope what’s written here helps you do that, and I hope you feel free to join the conversation and share your thoughts, too… After all, iron sharpens iron!

Grace to you… and peace,
