I lived on a farm in Dayton, Ohio for the majority of my grade school and high school years.
I have a biology degree and have worked with marine animals in theme parks and medical labs and research. (Not all at the same time…). My husband Mike and I live in Stow, OH now.
A few years ago, we wanted to create a homestead on our four-and-a-half acres for various reasons: one of those being to know where our food was coming from and what went into it to get it.
So, we bought a couple of dairy goats, a dozen chickens and jumped right into it! Seven years later, we have a dozen goats (we have had up to 14!), more chickens and two dogs. Little did I know that the vet I wanted to be growing up, I would become to my animals. (I’m not a vet; I just act like one…) I had delivered many goat kids, treated their cuts, stayed up with them during the night when they were sick, and sat with them as they died. It has been an adventure.
Mike and I have three college kids as well. I homeschooled them on and off (mostly on) from kindergarten to about 10th or 11th grade.
I have written and taught Bible studies (including spiritual warfare and the books of Revelation, Daniel, and Ephesians) to college students and adults. In my spare time, I enjoy studying the original languages of the Bible through word studies, commentaries, and classes.
I speak at women’s events, too.
I am under contract with Mt. Zion Ridge Press to publish my Bible study on the book of Hebrews. It will be called The Jewels of Hebrews.
I am leader of the Thursday night Twitter chat called #HealthyFaith.
Recently, I was ordained by Messenger Fellowship in Franklin, TN in the ministry of the Gospel.
I am part of BESORAH Institute for Judaic-Christian Studies & Biblical Research in which I work in Student Services. You can visit them at http://www.besorahinstitute.org/home.
“The vision and mission of the Besorah Institute is to help increase understanding among the members of the Body of Christ (The Church) of their Jewish roots, to train individuals for lay ministry to share the Gospel message with non-believers from a Judaic-Christian perspective, and to add to the literature on Biblical research.”
