"We can’t change anything about someone else (or what has happened), but we can choose to turn them over to God and walk forward in freedom in our own lives by forgiving." — Karen Jensen
Raise your hand if you’ve ever made a wrong decision. Hello! We all have our hands up right now – some of us have two hands! Let’s face it – we’ve all made a wrong decision (or two…or more!) in our lifetime. Welcome to the human race.

We also traveled to Oregon for my mom's funeral, where I delivered the eulogy. It was an honor to be part of celebrating her wonderful life, and a blessing to see so many family members.
Lots of people have asked me how Bob & I met, so here’s the story:
In June 2012 I was writing Why God Why? and I “just happened” to be writing about the grief process – how there are stages to go through if you’ve suffered loss, but how no one else can dictate how fast or slow, easy or hard, you go through each stage....
We just finished your Parenting DVD series in our church. I am so grateful for this teaching! The timing was perfect for my husband and me. At the end of each session I felt more encouraged and equipped in my role as a parent. I can do this! Having the worksheets that went along with the videos will be invaluable reminders of what was taught.
