Welcome to My Website

I am so glad you are here!

My story began in 2013. Our daughter, Anna, was accidentally hit by a car and killed while riding her bicycle. It was her 34th birthday. She was an eight-year veteran, single mom with two young girls, and they all lived with my husband and me in our home. I am launching my site today, May 2, 2020, on our daughter’s birthday in her memory. This tragedy became the springboard for my family’s incredible journey and for this site.

Under the Blog page I will share how God worked in our family to forgive and become close friends with the driver and his family. This story has many layers and continues to unfold even today. Our prayer is that lives will be healed and restored through the power and the gift of God’s love and forgiveness.

My heart’s desire is to spark a movement of forgiveness. The ripple effect of the story God orchestrated is quiet and subtle, but it is changing hearts and affecting relationships. One by one the light is spreading. I am not often aware of the ripple effect because this is soul work between God and people. Sometimes, I catch a glimpse if someone communicates with me, like people in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, California, Kenya, Japan, Russia…

Forgiveness, a force so powerful, it could change our world and the next generation. Perhaps it could change and heal you.

I hope you will visit again as I tell the story. Please, feel free to share your thoughts also. I would love to hear from you.
