The Full Story

I'm a writer, speaker, and (former) professional patient who has been sick a good portion of my life.


21-years, to be exact.


After surviving four near-death experiences, and 10 life-threatening illnesses, I think I've finally realized one simple truth:


Life is short.


It is.


I hope you find a way to enjoy each day you're given on this earth. And most importantly, that you truly know the Lord. If you really want to learn more about my zany story, you can read about it in my memoir, When God Intervenes: An Extraordinary Story of Faith, Hope, and the Power of Prayer (Tyndale House Publishers).


I've also written a 40-Day Devotional for the Newly Diagnosed: Hope for your bravest battle, from a former professional patient that will soon be available on this site.

I've been featured on In the Market with Janet Parshall (Moody Radio), the Chris Fabry Live show, and other newsworthy places.

Most recently, I was a COMPEL Training leader (a subsidiary of Proverbs 31 Ministry), where I co-lead other ladies on their writing journey.

My husband Jason and I are blessed to have four amazing kiddos, which I've homeschooled since PreK.

We live in sunny Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
