A Bit About Me

I'm so excited you are joining me! I wear many hats, as we all do. To name a few, I am a mom of 3 fantastic boys, a grandma of 9 beautiful grandchildren, and a wife to an amazing man! I retired from a career in education, where I was a teacher and administrator for almost 40 years. I have always enjoyed writing and have kept journals and computer files of my inspirations for years. 
In the winter of 2018, God impressed on my heart that He is the author and we are His book.  That began my journey with Coffee Shop Chronicles. Knowing that many of us meet and tell our stories over a cup of coffee, I ventured out to find some unique accounts that centered around a heart warming cup of coffee. I was amazed and privileged to be able to share these stories with my readers. The adventure continues to grow and change as I listen to more of your narratives of how God is working in the pages of your lives. I continue writing and speaking at church and community events to encourage you in your relationship with God and with others.
My heart's desire is that you will learn and grow from these chronicles. More so, I pray that you will see the value in giving God the pen and letting Him create His masterpiece in you.

May the God of hope fill [your cup] with all joy and peace as you trust in him.

Romans 15:13
