I am a Christ-follower who is not only learning to leave legalism behind, but is learning what it means to embrace GRACE while experiencing life’s changes. In the summer of 2016 my husband began the process of stepping down from a 30-year pastorate in Jackson, Michigan (That transition was completed in October 2017).  In December 2016, I learned that one of our beloved children identifies as lgbt and as a Christ-follower. The journey with my daughter has been the catalyst that finally has given me freedom from legalism and the ability to embrace God’s grace for my daughter and myself.

Along with being a growing Christian, I am the mom of three adult children, “Mimi” to five awesome grands, and wife to Phil. This blog is one of the ways in which I hope to work out what my ‘new normal’ will look like in the days ahead. By sharing here, I’m working out my journey and inviting you to join me.
