Tell us about your family. How do you feel about relocating?

My family is mostly in the south and my daughters and I live in a cozy house out in the country on a bit of land (in Missouri). We just relocated from Washington state because of the craziness going on there. Since we just moved we would prefer not to move again, but I trust the Lord would work in my heart to change that if circumstances called for it.

How old were you when you were drawn to Christ and how is your Christian walk these days?

I was 23 when God graciously opened my eyes to see the wretchedness of my sin and depravity. I had grown up in the church in a missionary family, but it was the American version of “Christianity.” Though many would say I had already been a Christian (because of the sad state of American evangelicalism), I know that it was on spring break in the year 2000 that God sovereignly granted me that heartfelt repentance for my sins and saving faith in Jesus Christ that can only come from His hand. The Lord has kindly directed my path out of some fluffy churches into solid Reformed churches, and I find that sitting under the preaching of His Word, Bible study, and prayer, as well as intentional sharing of the Gospel, give a liveliness to the Christian life that cannot be matched by the trinkets of this world.

How have the Doctrines of Grace changed or affected your life?

Beyond God’s gracious kindness in saving me, I have few things that have more impacted my Christian walk than understanding the Doctrines of Grace. It is such a blessing having faith in the God Who saves and keeps, and to understand that all things are under His sovereign, loving control. It is also a great relief to know that He gets ALL the glory, and that our ultimate purpose in life is to glorify Him – this helps shape all of our decisions. I could go on, but I’m pretty sure this is a subject we’ll never exhaust, even into eternity.

Do you have a "Quiet Time?" What are you studying?

Yes I do. I was reading the minor prophets, several times over of each prophet, until I heard Paul Washer’s sermon at the recent G3 (2021) conference. I was convicted that I need to spend more time in God’s Word and prayer and since then have been doing the Professor Grant Horner’s Bible Reading System again (on days that I’m able to). I pray in the mornings as well, though struggle a bit because of brain fog related to health issues; nonetheless God is gracious.

“As a father loves the first stammering efforts of his child to speak — so the Lord loves the poor feeble petitions of His people.” JC Ryle

Who is your favorite Biblical Character and why?

Jesus, because He is my Savior.  Moses brought the Hebrews out of Egypt, but not out of slavery to sin. Aaron was a good High Priest, but still had to make sacrifices for his own sins. Joshua conquered the promised land, but he could not conquer our sin-enslaved hearts. David was a good king, but not the King of Kings. Solomon was wise, but not wisdom itself.

 

Luke 24:27

And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

Are you content being single? Why? If not, why?

I think I would have to say yes and no. Yes, because the Lord has graciously helped my heart. The no part is because it would be a huge blessing to love a godly man and to have a family that participates together to bring glory to Jesus Christ.

What are four qualities your friends would attribute to you?

This is an awkward question!

I think some would mention that I like smiling 🙂 I’m going to not say more and hope that direct communication will relay more of this information…

What are three things you are most thankful for?

The precious gift of salvation that Jesus bought with His own precious blood – and all things related to our great God.

My two very precious daughters.

That God uses all things for His glory and for the good of His children.

Describe the character and personality traits you enjoy in another person? What are yours?

I would really appreciate a God-fearing, Christ-honoring man who loves Jesus first, and then me/others.

My daughters and I are active in passing out Gospel tracts and going to abortion mills, and I would be so thankful if the Lord would graciously provide a husband who would spiritually lead the family (even if he is not able to go out with us because of work).

 

Other than your parents, who has been the most influential person in your life and how?

Oh I don’t know if I can narrow it down that much! The Lord really blessed me with a good Pastor in Washington and now one here in Missouri – sitting under faithful preaching week after week has an immeasurable impact. I have been really blessed by learning a lot from Todd Friel / Wretched Radio listening to it for 14+ years (I became Reformed listening to Wretched, not even realizing it at first), Ray Comfort’s sermons on evangelism (Hell’s Best Kept Secret) and true and false conversion (a sermon by that name True and False Conversion), Paul Washer’s love for God’s Word, Albert Martin’s teaching on modesty, the Puritans in SO many ways, Charles Spurgeon’s sermons and pithy quotes, and many more faithful Christians.

 

What contributed to your previous relationship/marriage ending?

1 Corinthians 7:15 would describe what happened. My ex-husband was sadly not a Christian, though we thought for a time that he was many years ago. His animosity against Christians/Christianity increased over the years, and he ended up having a long term affair (I didn’t find out until after he left) and leaving in 2019. He filed for divorce and it was finalized in the summer of 2020.

How long have you been on your own since and what did you to do get through it?

It has been a little over 2 years since he left, but there were many years of heartache before that since he “left” before he left, if that makes sense. My church family played a huge role in encouraging me and my daughters to lean hard on Christ, and the Lord has shown Himself faithful day after day.

Favorite lines from movies, poems, songs, hymns or Scripture you would like to tell us about?

“Salvation is of the Lord.”

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,  not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:8-10

“Every truth leads towards holiness; every error of doctrine, directly or indirectly, leads to sin.” Charles Spurgeon

“Abhor all idea of being saved by good works, but O, be as full of good works as if you were to be saved by them!” Charles Spurgeon

What type of work do/did you do?

I have been a homemaker / homeschooling mom for many years. Before I stopped working outside the home I did administrative work for different kinds of companies, including a large construction company. I currently own a small business on Etsy that brings in supplemental income.

How long have you been/were you in that line of work? Do/you enjoy it?

I enjoy working, whatever work the Lord has for me.

Do you have any life-long goals? What are they?

To bring glory to Jesus Christ. To love my neighbors in truth, including sharing the Gospel with them and by pleading for the lives of babies at an abortion mill. To have people not think of me when a conversation is done, but of Jesus (I fail at this sooo often).

Where were you born and where have you traveled?

I was born in Delaware when my parents were there training to be missionaries. I grew up in Germany (7 years) and in Israel (5 years), and when we lived in Germany we crossed behind the Iron Curtain into a number of Communist countries (I can’t remember them all, but Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Poland, and Hungary). During those years we also traveled through Greece, England, France, Holland, and other non-Communist countries. I’ve been to Canada and Mexico, and Israel again for a visit in 2003.

How do you enjoy your leisure time? What do you do for recreation?

I enjoy spending time with my children, I love reading, taking care of the home, getting our new house/land in order, and I share the Gospel on social media. I’m also a bit vocal on social media about the things going on in this world, having studied and having been exposed to Communism for years (I’m definitely more outspoken on social media than I am in real life). We go to an abortion mill regularly and pass out Gospel tracts when we’re out and about.

Is there anything that the questionnaire didn’t cover?

Because of health issues in our family we cannot eat gluten – or even have it in the house.

About 11 years ago I was convicted about dressing more modestly, so I try to dress feminine though modest, and generally wear skirts.

About Me

I love the Lord and want to spend my life for His honor, at home and outside the home.

Soli Deo Gloria

My Interests

Loving my girls, teaching them the Bible and a Christian worldview, sharing the Gospel / tracting, Christian fellowship, loving our pre-born neighbors and adult neighbors outside of abortion mills (Prov. 24:11 and Prov. 31:8-9), taking care of our home and making it a loving, happy, cozy, God-glorifying home.
