My head shot What you need to know about me most of all is that I’m a wife, mother, teacher, and writer. I strive my best to curl up close to God to hear what He has to teach me. It is that relationship that, hopefully, transforms all the others.

I grew up a little bit of everywhere. My dad was a preacher, so we moved around a lot from Texas to Pennsylvania to West Virginia and several places in between. Right before I went to college my parents moved to Oklahoma, and I now claim it as my home.

I have been married to my best friend, Jeremy, since 2001 and we have three sons. Yes, three boys. My days are full of energy, noise, sword fights, legos, hugs, and kisses.

In 2002 I received my BA in English from Freed-Hardeman University and then in 2008 my MA in Composition and Rhetoric from the University of Central Oklahoma. Since 2007 I have been teaching freshman English and absolutely love it! Pre-kids I taught face-to-face at Southern Nazarene University (SNU) and Oklahoma State University-OKC (OSU-OKC). Post-kids I only taught online with SNU for several years, and I’m now back in the classroom and online with Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology (OSUIT). I love my students there and the way teaching allows me to be a better Mom when I’m at home.

I have written at overacup.org for many years. My writing has also appeared on themobsociety.com. I have several Bible studies, children’s picture books, and a novel in process.

Through my writing, I hope to help women develop a personal relationship with Jesus because we can’t give our children and families something we don’t have. While growing up I learned the importance of a personal relationship with God, and I want to help women get past the rule giver we often perceive Him as and discover the loving Father he really is. Walking in a relationship with God is the journey of a lifetime, and I hope you’ll join me.
