About

I am a woman who loves Jesus. It is because of Him, that I am here today. I am married to a wonderful man. I have 3 amazing daughters, a great son in law, and the cutest granddaughter that I can’t get enough of. I love being a LiLi. (That’s my grandma name) I love to watch old movies, listen to 70’s music (especially Earth, Wind and Fire) and spend time with my family and friends. I also love to restore and paint old furniture.

I grew up in a very abusive home. My family hid it from everyone, so I became a great pretender. No one knew what I lived with on a daily basis. When I turned 40, my body started having panic attacks. My body was telling me I had to deal with my past in order to heal and move forward. Those attacks were the worst and best thing that could have happened to me. They drove me into counseling. I also began to journal, read books and study God’s word with a passion. After years of doing those things, the Lord impressed on my heart to write a blog to help others. Of course I thought He was crazy to ask me to do that because I didn’t feel like I was the woman for the job. After much deliberation and wanting to be obedient, I am here–writing and sharing with you, the reader, what God has taught me through my struggles. My prayer is that God will use what I have learned and bring you closer to Him. I fall deeper in love with Christ every day and I am so grateful for all HE has done for me! This is my journey to joy.IMG_3951

  1. Hello dear Laurie! I just completed my testimony for a church membership application! Of course, I told how I heard the gospel at a Young Life Meeting and accepted Jesus one night after a meeting! So happy you are still involved with Young Life ministry! I have requested friendship on facebook and hopefully we can catch up over the next months. Think of you often!!
