Faithful wife to Rick; mother to 3 awesome grown children : Andrea, Amanda, and Caleb; "Oma" (German for grandmother) to 6 grandchildren: Milla, Hudson, Audrey, Elliot, Indiana, and Christian; and owner of 2 dogs: Paulie and Buck, and a cat named Missy.

I absolutely LOVE the outdoors: walking, bicycling, hiking, camping, kayaking, and gardening.

My indoor loves are: anything to do with the Culinary Arts, especially baking; sewing, knitting, quilting, and reading.

I am a Christian woman who is passionate about encouraging others to have hope; helping build self esteem in women who are down-trodden; and sharing the love of Christ to those who have never known unconditional love.
