Thanks for the “Women Within” and the warm welcome this evening. It was a blessing to share Heidi, my story, and the rollercoaster ride of life when your loved one is missing with you. This past Tuesday the news read, “Body Found in Scriba”. Words each family of the missing pray to hear and dread at the same time. The impact of this discovery and identification brought me to my knees…giving it all to God in prayer. He is my foundation.
While most of the amazing blocks (thank you Mom and Dad) and visuals were planned, a couple were additions. My message was the same yet the road traveled to get there took a very different route tonight. Throughout the week God directed my prayers, Scripture readings, and thoughts in a way I wasn’t sure I could do. I have to admit I thought, “I can’t do this on Friday.” when the Lord quietly reminded me this was the very message I planned to share.
Would I hide under the covers or stand on His foundation?
I choose to stand! And this was the last minute addition to our evening’s agenda. A block to represent each of us as we stand. We have a choice to make - either we can stand on our own with blocks of trials and tribulations weighing us down until we fall OR we can look to Him and seek His face.
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
Look to the LORD and his strength;
seek his face always.
Ladies, I had a fabulous evening with you tonight. Thank you for welcoming my mother and I into your group for the night, sharing your stories, memories, and revelations. You inspired us tonight.
I was overwhelmed with the requests to purchase my book tonight too ~ from your lips to God's ears and then the publishers. In God's time ladies. Your interest brought me such a smile, thank you!
I pray your heart was touched and if you aren’t leaning on Jesus and reading your Bible, I challenge you to start. I hope you have a “dirty Bible” when we meet again.
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God."
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
I look forward to hearing from you. Feel free to share your thoughts, reflections, comments, and feedback on this page. This is for you. After the video are a few verses to encourage you this week. There are more listed in your brochure too. This is only a snip-it of the ones I studied and prayed on in preparation for our time together. May God bless you!

Speaking for Him
Thank you in advance for listening as I share my story, my sister, and the hope I found in a Faithful and Loving God. I look forward to reading your thoughts, feelings, questions, and emotional feedback after hearing me speak. You are a blessing to me and I pray for God to touch your heart as you share, you are not alone.
