I was born and raised in Southwest Pennsylvania, the fifth of seven children. Although we didn’t attend church on a regular basis, there was always a deep faith among all of us.
I was baptized in a small Methodist Church and my mother made sure that we always attended Vacation Bible School. In 1977, I moved to Northwest Pennsylvania where I met my husband, Ron. We were married in 1981 and I “inherited” three stepchildren whom I love as if they were my own biological children.
Ron and I are also the parents of a son, Ron (though not a junior). My three stepchildren are all married with wonderful life partners and have blessed Ron and I with five grandchildren.
Our son, Ron, has just become engaged to a wonderful young lady, Rachel.
One of my favorite Scriptures is from John 14:2, “In my Father's house are many mansions. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?” These Scriptures have strengthened my faith as our Lord promises that we will all be together again one day with Him and those that we have loved along our journey.
