About Me

Welcome to my blog. I’m thrilled you’re here!

As a mother of three, and grandmother to eight, my desire is to help you rediscover your purpose. When you visit my blog I hope you discover that I will:

  • walk with you through the struggles of life
  • speak God’s Truth to you from His written Word
  • uncover extraordinary moments of joy, laughter, and wonder together

Life is a wonderful messy journey meant to be shared.

I’d like to send you some free chapters of my book, Choosing a Way Out, just for stopping by. Click the link below to access your free chapters and to receive new blog updates.



A Short Bio

I am a wife, a mom, a grandma, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a cousin, a friend attempting to live each day to the fullest. I enjoy reading, writing (obviously!), sewing, cooking, and baking just to name a few. I love to walk, especially when it’s with Dave, my husband. My trust and faith in my loving Heavenly Father anchors my life. I’ve also been bitten by the travel bug; there is so much to explore and learn!

Dave & KirstenDave and I have been married for over three decades. I’m grateful to be married to my best friend. Our marriage isn’t perfect because we aren’t perfect, however, we are enjoying the adventure together. I’ve had the opportunity to be a working mom in and out of the home, and Dave and I even jumped head first into running our own business!

I’m privileged to be the mom of three children, all married now, bringing my “children” total to six. Mom’s there’s hope: I survived the teenage years and so did my kids! Unexpectedly, they were some of my favorite, albeit most challenging, years. I’m also Grandma to eight unique and precious grandbabies.

My books, Choosing a Way Out: When the Bottom Isn’t the Bottom and  5 Lies Moms Believe, are available wherever books are sold. As an author, writer for hire (ghostwriter), speaker, and coach, your story is important to me. You and I are uniquely designed with purpose and passion. Can you tell I love stories? 🙂

How often should you stop by? Always! But seriously, I normally gather my scattered thoughts of pure genius to post once a week. Please leave a comment whenever you’re here; I love to hear your stories.

Join me in this journey to discover the extraordinary that intersects the ordinary. Because, really, every day is extraordinary if you think about it.

Live your legacy today,
