Live on Purpose     Change the World

My Story

 

     Where to begin? There is a lot to me.  I am a happy wife and a grateful mom to a teenage boy who happens to have Down Syndrome. I am blessed to be able to enjoy four incredible step adult children and their growing families.  My husband has his doctorate degree in church growth (I'm very proud of him) and together we pastor, teach, and work at The Palms Church in Brandon, Florida.  I also have my Secondary Education Teaching degree from Southeastern University and taught junior high school in the public school system for over 18 years. I became a certified Life Coach so I could expand my influence into different avenues and occupations.  

 

      For the past few years, I have had the privilege to be involved and lead with a web-based organization called Leading It and Loving It. The audience for these groups are Senior Pastor’s wives and they have become an integral part of my faith-based coaching.   These precious women are amazing. I also get to speak at various MOPS meetings in the surrounding counties that I live.  Young moms have an incredible calling and assignment on this earth.  It is my honor to encourage them every opportunity I can.

 

      I love meeting new people and finding out what makes their hearts soar.  I enjoy inspiring people and helping them find their path in life through Christ. I never give up HOPE and believe that all things are possible through prayer and encouragement.  I enjoy seeing people sparkle, come alive with vision, simplify their lives, and really live out of their heart.  I am an active learner and I am continually evolving myself - I have not arrived by any means, but I am doing my best to enjoy every day "On Purpose!" I have been to the bottom and gotten out!   I want to help others be the best that they can be.  By God's grace and strength I live.
