I]’m a simple woman who struggles each day to live her best life and serve God’s purposes. I am a mother who lives each day to inspire and encourage her children to live out their true purposes in life. I am part of a larger family….those related to me by blood and those connected to me at heart. I attempt to encourage and inspire them too. I am the grateful recipient of encouragement and inspiration from those around me who generously offer me their friendship. I share here a little bit of my beautiful life. I hope something here encourages you on your journey through life….beauty is all around.
That is the philosophical….now a bit about my daily life. I am mom to two young adults. Elizabeth is 24 and Andrés is 25. Elizabeth is a graduate of Concordia University in business and marketing and works at a local media company. Andres is a graduate of San Diego Christian College in Music with an emphasis in worship leading. Andres also is Concordia’s worship music leader. He gives guitar and drum lessons (his youngest student is 4 and his oldest is probably near 70….I am told he is a very patient teacher!) I also help care for my mother who lives with us. My family keeps me grounded and helps me live out my call to love. They are sweet recipients and givers of love.
I was an attorney before being asked to serve in Mexico in a ministry which seeks to raise a new generation that follows Jesus and change the world. You can check out our mexico ministry blog at http://www.edificandogeneraciones.org and yes, I travel across the border to Tijuana every week.
I am also privileged to help people connect with each other and with service opportunities with Concordia Church in Chula Vista, California (www.concordiachurch.com). I love it there because it is a place for real people and serious faith. Over the last year four years, my time has been absorbed by being part of a mission planting team with our church serving a new community by launching a preschool which opened on August 3, 2009.
This beautiful life is quite an adventure. I am glad to be able to share a bit of it here with you.
