It’s always a pick-me-up spending time with a friend.
Grab your favorite drink and settle into a comfy chair as we talk about . . .
What inspires us.
How we’re growing in Christ.
And what it means to be a Christian today.
I look forward to interacting with you!
My Favorite Things
What I love? A steaming cup of Mexican Mocha, hold the whip cream, please! But also things like cooking breakfast, gourmet chocolate, Kombucha, playing piano, losing myself in a book, dabbling in watercolor, travel, and all things Israel! Walking, hiking, biking, water aerobics—doing anything out in nature is totally my thing. I love humor and am even known to play an occasional prank. I cherish my girlfriends, and of course, what better place to meet than at a coffee shop!
Random Facts About Me
I’ve lived in Oregon all my life, but my parents immigrated from Switzerland and Germany, and I spoke German before learning English. I met my hubby at Multnomah School of the Bible over 35 years ago, and here we already have two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and one “grand-cat!” When the children lived at home I taught piano, but as an empty nester I returned to school for my Master’s degree, graduating in 2014. I now enjoy working as a Licensed Professional Counselor.
When I was ten years old, I went forward at a Billy Graham Crusade and have followed Jesus ever since. He has been my comfort, my hope, and my strength through all the messies of life. I want more and more of Him, more and more single-minded focus, and more and more passion to share my faith. Lately the Lord has been teaching me new things about love, trust . . . and joy! I Thessalonians 5:16-18 is my current motto, “Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
