About Me
100% Complete Bio
I am a firm believer that every single person is special, none more than another. We all have many wonderful things about ourselves that cannot possibly be covered in short profile. We are creatures wonderfully and magnificently made.

I used to think that winning was the most important thing but I have since changed my thinking. If I can be a light and encouragement to others, I have accomplished the mission that has been mandated to me.

That being said, here is a summary of who I am:

I am married to a wonderful guy who shares my passion for God, life and NASCAR. The last 8 months has truly been a character building time. We are preparing for another transition right now. We don’t know what tomorrow holds but we know who holds tomorrow.

We pray for our Military men and women everyday.

We ride Harleys, have 2 “fru-fru” dogs (not a Lab, the Cadillac of dogs) and Billy drives a Pickup. I’m a city girl married to a “simple, country boy from Okie…” Yes people, those are the husbands words, not mine.

Born and raised in Chicago. Moved to Michigan in 1975. My 5 kids raised me, then they had kids. Married this guy in 1999. He has 4 kids. We have 24 grand-kids and 3 great grand-kids.

And lastly, I hope I am always able to be amazed at the greatness of people’s actions. At the same time, I wish people would stop attempting to astound me with the stupid things they say and do.

My Mission Statement: Honor the integrity of my calling. Follow God’s plan and purpose for my life. Resign the position of playing God. Continue on this journey of being a recovering “Know It All”. Pray for those who don’t know they need it and be a blessing to everyone who crosses my path.
