Where do you go when life as you know it is turned completely upside down? It happened to me. The life I knew and loved vanished on August 7, 2013 when my college sweetheart and husband of 33 years chose to end his life. There are not words to describe my shock and devastation. Though I was surrounded with wonderful, loving people, none of them could restore the half of me that died that day. This was a God-sized task! This is my journey through shock, grief, mourning and healing. It is the very personal and profound journey I took to ultimately discover that no matter how deep your pain…God is always there and He is enough. If you are grieving, God Is Enough will give you hope. I understand what you are going through, and I am here to share my message of hope, healing and faith.

I would like to invite you to read this book. The book starts out with details on the day when I discovered my husband Bob was hanging from a tree on August 7, 2013. The book is entitled God is enough. I discovered for myself that God was enough to help me process this horrific, unbelievable event. I was angry at God and wanted Him to stop the suicide. God did not give me an answer but I knew only He could put me back together. After all, "I am the LORD, and there is no other."-Isaiah 45:5. And He did so three years later. It was a long painful journey but the benefits were worth the wait! If God can restore me He can restore anyone.
God is Enough
In the midst of the most horrific event of my life, God showed me that HE IS ENOUGH. He met me where I was. “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18 ESV) He loved me enough to not let me stay brokenhearted. “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.” (Psalm 40:2 NIV)
