Book

I am currently finishing my first book about our story:


What Led Me to You
How a mother's faith and family grew in ways she never expected.


What Led Me To You walks you through my journey as a Mother who needs Jesus.  Jumping into foster care, with my husband and two young daughters, was far from anything I ever expected. Suddenly I became desperate for the God I had known my whole life.

Just two weeks into our first placement, a traumatic event left me feeling very alone.  Followed by years of parenting children with special needs I was often brought to my knees. 

As I started seeking God’s will, my life became less like the cookie cutter shape I had imagined and more like the shape God intended for my family. Not only did I survive some of the hardest trials of my life, but I found God waiting for me every step of the way. 

My husband and I found ourselves pursuing the adoption of our three foster children, each with their own special needs. We were parenting five children, all under the age of five. 

What Led Me To You is a book about trusting Christ; even during the hardships we face as parents and believers, and will inspire you to seek God’s will in your own life.
