Shortly thereafter, I married and eventually became a mom. My passion grew from designing and drawing houses to building a strong spiritual home for my family. I struggled in the day-to-day to know what I needed to do to be a godly wife and mother. So, I began reading and studying the Bible on my own. Some days went well, and I felt good about my spiritual progress. But there were many days I fell to my knees begging God to help me navigate difficult—or even ordinary—situations. I had no idea this would be so hard.
As I learned how to build the foundation of our spiritual home, I finally began to share my questions and fears with other godly women. When I realized they were just like me, trying to make it through each day without ruining their kids or tearing down their marriages, I no longer felt alone. Now that I’ve been married 35 years and my children are young adults who have their own lives, I want to give back and encourage others in their journey. I hope my experience, blog stories and podcast interviews will help lift you out of the trenches and onto a firm foundation.
