I have spent the last 19 years serving the Lord in Austria as a missionary with my family. My husband and I have been married for over 37 years, we have 5 children and 10 grandchildren! Very cool being a grandma! Our youngest, 17 years old, is still at home, and I am homeschooling him. I love writing and have been thrilled by my discovery of FaithWriters. I love the challenge, encouragement and community, but most of all, I love the Christ-centered atmosphere. My other interests include music (our family has been involved in music ministry) and teaching. (my husband and I lead marriage seminars and I love teaching women's groups.) We also travel a great deal for ministry to Arab-speaking countries. My heart's desire is to serve Jesus and know Him more.
