I never know what to say when asked to write a bio.
My life is very ordinary, much like yours. God has given me opportunities to travel and speak, write and produce books and DVD studies. But mostly, I do life in Hamilton – a small town in southwest Montana. I’m really just a hick from the sticks!
Like you, life keeps me busy. More and more each day, I realize how much I need Jesus in every area of my life. So I’ve made this my one goal – to know Him and be known by Him! I don’t do it perfectly – believe me, I’m a fellow struggler when it comes to carving out time with God. But the same grace that saves us is the same grace that changes us! And oh, sweet friend! I don’t want to miss that for anything in the world.
To know Jesus – and be known by Him! There’s nothing sweeter on this earth.
I was a 28-year-old pastor’s wife before I discovered Bible study tools that helped me cultivate a deeper relationship with God. It’s my passion to pass those tools on to you. For you were made for more than religion, my friend. You were created for a heart-to-heart friendship with Jesus!
I’m blessed to be married to a Jesus-hearted man whom I adore. John loves me and consistently believes the best in me even when I’m at my worst. I can’t imagine where I’d be, let alone who I’d be without his steady influence and always faithful love.
Together, we have three amazing kids. John Michael, Jessica, and Joshua. Both John Michael and Jessica are married to amazing people (Kami Weaver and Loren Downs) and serve in ministry, but Josh is still at home and brings us so much joy!
John serves as a lead pastor which is really quite convenient – especially since God called me to be a pastor’s wife when I was sixteen. Even after three decades of full-time ministry, being a pastor’s wife is still my greatest joy and central calling. I love loving God’s people!
Here’s my “Statement of Faith.”
