The Journey
Welcome to my website.  I'm so glad you stopped by.  I'm a former USC graduate who is now a Navy wife and home school mother currently stationed with my family in Virginia Beach, VA.  God has always been an important part of my life.  Having been raised in a Christian family and a Sunday School teacher for many years, God sent me on a new path in 2013.  That year, "The No-Homework Women's Bible Study: Group Hug" series was born.  When we started a Women's Bible Study at the military base chapel I was attending, the women were all in agreement they wanted to spend time in fellowship with other Christian women and grow in their walk with the Lord, but didn't have time for weekly homework.  Being a new group, we also wanted a light, fun Bible study that would help us get to know each other better and form strong Christian bonds between group members.  In response to that need, I wrote "The No-Homework Women's Bible Study: Group Hug".  We had a lot of fun "testing" this study in our small group.  So much so that I decided to publish the study as the first "Group Hug" book.  The response to that first book was so positive that I decided to expand it into a series.  The interest in the "Group Hug" series continues to grow and I have plans to further expand it again in 2015, so stay tuned for more fun!

As the series grows, I continue to test each lesson in real world environments with real women before the material is published.  This process has allowed me to meet many new Christian sisters and grow as Christian in my walk with the Lord.  I am so grateful for the women who have participated in my focus groups and helped me bring you the best possible lessons.  If you are ever in the Virginia Beach area and would like to participate in one of the focus groups, please feel free to contact me through this website to find out if there is a focus group happening that coincides with your schedule.

I hope you have just as much fun with your small group as we did with ours.  Even if your group is more established and everyone knows each other well, this study will add a new dimension to those relationships.  My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will be present in each and every group and guide both the group and the individuals within the group in the direction they need to go.  I truly hope you enjoy your small group experience with the "No-Homework Women's Bible Study: Group Hug" series as much as our small group enjoyed our journey.   May you grow in your walk with the Lord and develop lasting and supportive relationships with other Christian women.
