One year ago…

Welcome to my brand new blog!  I am grateful to have you on this journey with me!  My hope is that you will find some hope and encouragement during your time here.

This blog is dedicated to my precious Mom.  One year ago today, she went home to be with her Lord and Savior. Although I miss her terribly, I know she is in heaven and living even more fully than she ever did here. This hope gives me great comfort, even in the midst of my sorrow.

Throughout our journey and my Mom’s courageous battle with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer, we started a Caring Bridge account because there were so many who wanted to join us on her journey.  Writing became a lifeline for me and for others…a beautiful way to join together as one to love and pray for her.    Writing became like therapy for me as we were going through such a difficult season.  God blessed and encouraged our whole family in a writing space where we shared our hurts, our hopes, God’s gifts and our prayers.

There have been several along this journey who have encouraged me to keep writing. My precious Mom was the first one in my life to encourage me as a writer. She often told me I had a gift for writing. I believe she also had this gift.   So, in memory of my precious Mom, I have decided to start a blog in her honor.


I am just getting started so this is definitely a little out of my “comfort zone.”   My hope and prayer is that you will find a safe place here, a place where you will leave feeling loved and encouraged.  This life is not easy, but God is with us every step of the way and He is our greatest Comforter and Help, through any storm.

I will write more soon to explain the great meaning of ANCHORS to our family and how God strengthened and held us through this storm.

Until I post again,

“May the Lord bless you and keep you; may He make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; May He turn His face toward you and give you peace.” ~Numbers 6:24-26
