To Live Deliberately




We can encourage each other to “live deliberately,” stopping long enough to see how precious each day is in every season of our lives.


Together let’s embrace the beauty of everyday moments, seeing God’s hand and His love in ordinary days.

 Living in upstate New York, in the rambling 1840’s house where we raised our family, I joyfully reside with my retired husband, Bob, where we are surrounded by our seven children, twenty-one grandchildren, and six great grandchildren who all live nearby.

I am a conference and retreat speaker, an inspirational storyteller, a Bible study writer and teacher, and a small group discipleship leader. I love God’s grace so freely poured forth into hearts. I’ve seen His mercies first-hand, new every morning.
I’m so glad you stopped by my website. My prayer is you’ll consider visiting often. If you’re interested in reading more about my life, family, and ministry, there’s a longer bio you can read here. I am excited to be writing and blogging. I anticipate seeing God’s hand as we continue to seek Him with our whole hearts.
On this journey together,
