My Life Story(905) 827-4888 ext. 224
How patient our God is! Even as a baby I attended church at least every week, often more frequently, knew all the great stories of the Bible and spent time learning about Jesus Christ. All through elementary school, high school and both undergraduate and graduate school, I “talked the talk and walked the walk”. All on my own strength. I entered into a very successful career in sales and marketing and for nearly twenty years my life focused on living the good life, work, travel and entertainment. It wasn’t until my mid-thirties that I realized that although I had found great worldly success I hadn’t really found happiness or contentment. I was very alone. I always felt like I was waiting for something to happen, but I didn’t know what. The church I was attending wasn’t feeding me what I needed to be fed so I briefly backed away from all things spiritual. I was so close to grasping the truth but was so far away.
In 1997, I quit my high-powered job and took some time off to play, spend time with friends and travel some more…still looking for happiness and contentment. It wasn’t until a new friend (now my husband Bob) invited me on a date to Harvest Bible Chapel in Rolling Meadows that I began to realize that I wasn’t going to find happiness or contentment on my own. In an evolving personal relationship with Jesus Christ, I quickly grew in my happiness and my contentment continues to grow everyday. And it’s all because of the patience of God… no matter how many times He whispered to me I closed my ears. Now everyday I open my ears, my eyes and my heart to what He wants to do and teach me.
After moving to Ontario from Wisconsin in the summer of 2011, Bob and I have fallen in love with everything Canadian. We have two adult daughters, one currently in France, the other in Wisconsin. Bob and I live in Burlington with our two pups, Bogie Putt and Chip Shot. As you might guess, I love golf, cooking, watching cooking shows, eating, reading and the Green Bay Packers. Both Bob and I are humbled that everyday He faithfully provides for us in ways that we can’t even comprehend and certainly don’t deserve.
My hope for Harvest
My life verse is Psalm 118:24. This is the day the Lord has made, let us be rejoice and be glad in it. My hope for Harvest is that we look at every day, no matter what the circumstances and can always step back and know that the Lord has given us this day to be content and happy and to work with it for His greater honor and glory. Rejoice!
