Wife, mother, motivational speaker, author, counselor and teacher. I have 3 adult children and a husband of 27 years. For the past 13 years I have served the youth and their parents at Liberty Church in Marietta Georgia. I loved everything about being a mom: I loved the terrible twos and the terrifying teens, and the cake in my hair, and the spilled punch, I loved the chaos, the noise, the craziness of tons of kids, it was everything I wanted in my life. I loved that constant overwhelming feeling of someone being completely dependant on me as well as that joyful aweful feeling of watching that same someone, just 18 years later leave me and go off in the world on their own.
