Born again Christian who wants to bring honour and glory to the Lord through my devotions.
Interests: To grow daily in my relationship with the Lord, and in my prayer life, and to share with others what Jesus can do in their life. Family means a lot to us, so my husband Dan and I, do a lot of travelling, to visit our 4 married children and 17 grandchildren who live in Canada and the United States. God comes first, family second and business comes last.
