About Me

My name is Heather. My passion in life is to encourage and inspire others to seek out and know Jesus Christ. I believe this heart-sore world needs a  life-breathing, encouraging word.  I cannot say I have all the answers and know why everything happens as it does. I don’t. I have experienced both success and failure, sweet joys and deep sorrows, tender love and bitter loss, good health and life-draining cancer, life-long friendships and the dagger of betrayal. Perhaps, you have too. As a result, I am more determined than ever to live out the mercy and grace of Christ as best I can and share a word of His hope.

I am the wife of John, the most generous, real and authentic man I know. He loves and cherishes me – just as I am – and for that I am beyond grateful. I am the mother of three incredible young men – Micah, Jake, and Caleb – who teach me the importance of being true to myself and inspire me to seek joy in every moment. Our family lived southern Africa for 15 years – embracing the incredible truth of God’s infinite love, tender mercy and divine purpose for us all.

We’re now on a new adventure in the southwest United States. Learning and growing all over again – learning and growing and becoming never stops, does it?

I love and live by these words:

My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

New International Version, Colossians 3: 2-3

Thank you for stopping by!
