I am a follower of Christ. I am a 50-something year old mom of seven. I homeschooled my kids through high school and taught a seminar called “Home School for High School” across the country for fourteen years. I have been married to the same man for 33+ years. We live in North Texas. We enjoy traveling, cycling and playing with our pug Lyla and yellow lab Lady. We have three grandsons and one granddaughter. I enjoy leading Bible studies around my dining room table.
But those things are not why I started a blog.
On August 13, 2013, we found out one of our adult children had died in a car wreck. I began posting on Facebook about my life over the next few weeks. My posts were raw and honest. Friends recommended that I start a blog. So here it is.
I have never before been a writer. My posts continue to often be raw and honest. Sometimes they are funny. I simply blog about what is happening in my life and my walk with God.
In 2015, I published two books. What Bereaved Parents Want You to Know (but may not say) contains four articles from my blog. It is a great resource that can help you understand and love grieving families. My Journey through Grief into Grace reads like a diary of the first two years after The Accident.
In May 2016 I was asked by Precept Ministries International to write an inductive Bible study on grief. My husband Ron was quickly recruited to be co-author. The book is titled God’s Healing in Grief. A companion Journal was published by PMI. Both are available from www.precept.org and your local bookstore.
I am now an author and a speaker. Two things I hadn’t planned on. But God had a plan. He’s working in my life and through ugly thing to bring Himself glory and to conform us to the image of His Son.
My prayer is that my words honor my family, glorify my Lord, and help others heal. And maybe I can bring you a bit of joy and laughter along the way.
I welcome comments. I hope you will be encouraged and blessed by what I write.
In Christ, Kathleen
