What was the one experience that completely changed your life? What happened? How did it change your life?
I was hit by a car at the age of 8. It was a cold December afternoon in 1981 and I misread the speed that the car was traveling across the urban street in my neighborhood. The car knocked me 10-feet in the air and I landed violently on the driver's hood, then rolled to a stop onto the cold road. I was knocked unconscious all the while hearing my sisters crying and screaming.
The ambulance took me to a trauma center, fixed my broken leg, my broken arm and the bleeding I was suffering internally. After three months of a body cast and three more months of crutches and therapy, I became brand new again…on the outside…but the inside of me changed forever. Our small family fell apart after that, and we have not been the same since...
I write about my journey to healing and the mountaintops and valleys in my book, Faith's Pursuit: Understanding God's Faithfulness in Suffering. To find out more about my incredible journey, download my book from amazon.com, or check out my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/faithspursuit
Happy New Year!
With the support of my husband and kids, I have recently made a career change! It is a bit bizarre, after houseparenting for 15 years, to now be the only one who leaves the house in the morning.
While I still work at the Milton Hershey School, I am now one of the writers for our school curriculum. The curriculum that I am writing is social and emotional learning and character and leadership development. It is a mouthful, indeed, and it speaks to the enormity of the journey I have just embarked upon.
While I feel like this is overwhelming, it really is my life calling. I have grown to be a teacher of children, but I don't teach academic lessons, (except when I homeschooled by children). But I have always taught life lessons. I am excited to use this journey to continue to tell my own story to a larger MHS audience!
My pursuit of faith is paying off in ways that I never dreamed.
Wish me luck!
I am an author and speaker who loves to show my passion for Jesus and people through my writing. Words are powerful!
