My Books

hope and humor for women in all walks of life

Since I started writing, I've written or co-written books about parenthood, marriage, women in scripture, getting older grace-fully and gratefully, and more. Through every project, I pray for God to be glorified and your load to be lightened. 

My co-author Tina Samples and I get it. We have our own stories of pain before healing--along with similar experiences from our families and friends. Instead of offering pat affirmations or vicarious shoulders to cry on, Tina and I delve deep into the shared emotions and injuries that women of all ages have in common--and move readers toward the recovery and healing that only God can provide.

No matter what hurts you've experienced, we pray this book and study prove that God understands--and that healing is not only His intention but His delight!

"The Biblical stories were truly brought to life by the authors. Some of their viewpoints were new thoughts to me and I found interesting and has helped my spiritual growth. Usually I give books away after reading, however, I still have this as I plan to read many more times."

Wounded Women touched my heart immensely!

It helped me find comfort and strength as I realized biblical women struggled with some of the same things I do.

Wounded Women of the Bible is an outstanding study.

If marriage is a font, then ours is a Wingding. My husband Carey and I have tried being something more respectable, like Times New Roman or Courier, but alas, some couples are destined for weirdness.
