Letting go…

I loved celebrating my mom on her wedding day!

It was a special gift to help her dress in the bridal room, to hold her shaky, nervous hands, and pray for her just before the ceremony.

It was a moment I will treasure forever, being able to give thanks to God for her, to ask Him to bless her on this joyous day, to remind her that of all the roles she plays, her most important identity is as a daughter of God.

One of God’s greatest gifts in my life has been giving me a mother whose heart is full of faith and trust in God, joy and gratitude in all times, and forgiveness in all circumstances.

It was hard to let go of her hands, but I know my mom is a woman who will always be there for me and my siblings, no matter what.

Terry is one lucky man, and I am thankful my mother has a loving companion to walk beside her and hold her hand in all her adventures!

I was raised Mormon, but left Mormonism in my 30s. At 40, I simply believe in a personal relationship with Jesus. He abides in me as I abide in His word, the Bible. I was born and raised in Southern California. I attended BYU in Utah and graduated with a BSN RN. I lived in Michigan and worked as a nurse there and when my ex-husband and I moved to Texas with our first child, a son. My second child, a daughter is Texas born and raised through and through. I love Texas. Been in Dallas for 13 years. Being a California girl, I must vacation to the beach every summer. I love gardening, exploring, simply being outdoors in nature, especially with the mature trees and large bodies of water. Beside writing, I enjoy photography, modern calligraphy, painting. I love to teach my children, and encourage them in their creative endeavors. God closed the door on my nursing career about 7 years ago. During those years, God has been healing me from childhood trauma. In the past 2 years since Jesus came after me, my life has been transformed! I live my life one day at a time, always seeking spiritual growth and closeness to God. It took nearly 40 years for me to come to believe I could trust God,and in turn, flern to trust myself. No matter what happens, I know God is with me, so I move forward with faith, hope, and joy!
