1) Introduce yourself to our readers.
I live in the Midwest with my husband and four children. I own an in-home daycare and write during naptime. As a member of the cancer community, I try to encourage others in their walk with Christ by giving tips on how to see God’s blessings in every situation. You can read more about my cancer story in my book God Above Cancer: Faith When It’s Ugly.
2) Where do you attend church?
I grew up attending a Southern Baptist church, and I currently attend Antioch Bible Baptist Church.
