She struggles with secondary infertility, exercising, and caring adequately for herself and her family. She loves psychotropic medication. She is married and has a seven year old daughter. Her call is to interpret scripture and share her life experiences in such a way to help others who are hurting and bring glory to God and the Bible. Her reality is she spends some days doing absolutely nothing, tugging at her hair and poking at her eyes in frustration.
