About Me

Who am I? In my USA life, I was a teacher for 15 years. I was also a professional photographer, a Southern Living / Martha Stewart wannabe, a soccer mom, and a short term mission team coordinator / intern director for missions in Mexico… you name it, I probably tried it!

In 2006, my husband Billy and I took a leap of faith and became career missionaries with The Mission Society. For five years, we served in three rural Quechua Wanca villages in the Andes of Peru. And when I say rural, I mean RURAL – like no potty! I spent my days in Peru learning to live a Quechua lifestyle in a rustic adobe house – cooking Peruvian foods, sewing with Quechua women, raising my chickens and goats and pigs, and planting my gardens.It was an adventure, for sure! One that I will treasure forever. I was still teaching, still taking photos, still leading mission teams and working with interns, I just did it all in full-time mission service!

We transitioned out of Peru in December of 2012 for a different assignment and different type of mission service. Now I live my life in Spain, serving other cross-cultural workers and displaced people, writing, and trying to figure out what life looks like for a Texas girl serving Christ in Southern Europe.  And I’m still working hard at giving Southern Living and Martha Stewart and all those Pinterest Queens a run for their money!

We have three incredible children… Ryan (30) and Miles (27) live in Texas, working and studying and beginning their lives as young adult men; and Sarah (15) lives with us in whatever country we are serving.   Life in His service is AWESOME! I’m happy to share it with you here… Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for this deep lesson and such very specific questions that I can do and ask and listen for.
    I am now equipped to start being a better listener and support to all my mission-serving friends on the field and here at home.
    Thank you for taking the time to love us and teach us.
