A graduate of Kent State University, I am a police officer’s wife and the mother of two teenage boys. I battle my share of inner demons- I know what it means to struggle. I’ve been trying to manage both severe depression and chronic pain for years. Sometimes I do that well; sometimes I find it difficult to even get out of bed.
My two boys, Deklan and Duncan, are the joys of my life. The sparkle in their eyes reminds me that every day is a gift. My husband and soul mate Tim consistently shows me that every day lived is a new victory, and that life can not beat us as long as we keep living it. I can’t imagine a life without him and his loving support.
When the heaviest of darkness descends into my life, it is the Lord Jesus that has been my light and my hope. He is my courage and my strength when pain determines to rule my life. There have been so many times that I wanted to give up, but He has been my Rock. My heart belongs to Him.
Now at 40 years old, I’m opening a new chapter in my life. So many people out there have stories like mine, and I want them to know they are not alone. I’ve always enjoyed singing, but writing songs and making music have become a passion.
The songs that I write are born from my journey… The cover songs I select are connected to my story…
