November Women's Weekend
A BEAUTIFUL FALL SANDY COVE WOMEN’S WEEKEND
Framed by Grace: How the Father's Love Redeems Your Story
with Co-Speakers: Laura Acuna and Kim Hyland
I am no different from you. I want to live the abundant and effective life God has planned just for me, to be in His perfect will – but often times I miss the mark. I am such a work in progress. The truth is: I talk way too much; I over-think everything; I have been called ‘flighty’; and (to quote Beth Moore) “I’m blonder than I pay to be.” Yet, in spite of it all, today I walk in freedom and joy in a way that escaped me for many, many years. I am one grateful girl!
Because of God’s love, grace, and healing, I have an unquenchable desire to know Him more deeply. I am committed to applying His Word to my life so I can continue to grow and mature. I feel compelled to testify to His character as a redeemer of broken thinking, broken hearts, and broken dreams. He certainly is all of those things to me – and He is for you, too.
I’m married to Pat, the man I met when we both had parts in an Italian opera at our local community college. He had the role of a non-singing priest and I played an Italian peasant in the chorus! That meeting, when we were both 20 years old, led to a friendship – then a courtship – and now a marriage of 33 years. We are polar opposites of each other; he is laid back, calm and thoughtful – and I am…well, the opposite! We ARE the same on the important things, though – our lifetime commitment to the Lord, tending to our marriage, and devotion to our three sons. Many things have changed for us over the years – but those three things, in that order, have remained the same.
Just like you, I wear many hats! Along with being a wife to Pat and a mom to Patrick, Grant and Matthew, I am also a speaker, blogger and the co-founder of Sisters in Faith Ministries (which includes The Manorwood Caféand Step-Up Coaching for Women in Ministry). I LOVE to serve women through speaking, writing, teaching and coaching. My family worships and serves at Damascus Road Community Church.
A few other favorite things… A fire in our backyard fire pit on a cool Fall evening; sitting under our big old maple tree with a book on a warm day; any time we are together as a family; a long chat with a good friend; make-up, jewelry and all things ‘girlie’, and an addiction to all manner of British period drama now that Downton Abbey has ended!
Daughter. Follower. Wife. Mom. Friend.
That's my life in just five words, but there are so many more. My story was written before there was time, and it is revealed to me step by step and day by day. While the story is mine, I am not the main character. My loving Father wrote it, and He is my story's hero. As I live it, I want to write about it. I want to share my joys, sorrows, and lessons learned as a fellow sojourner.
