AUTHOR OF JESUS IN GENESIS
I live with my husband of 24 years in the tiny town of Sardis, Ohio, in the middle of the sticks (and I mean the sticks!), but this is where Jesus found me, and I found Jesus, and He is the love of my life. I am so overwhelmed with emotion as I learn about Him in the Word of God! I learn something amazing every time I read it, and I love to share what I learn about Him with you! It’s not just about learning, it’s about believing every word, and knowing it applies to each one of us! There is a great adventure in following Him, and it is one I will never regret.
