My kids tease me sometimes that my definition of a situation going well is often described as, “It was ‘life-giving’ ” — meaning, it may have had some conflicts or uneasy moments or stress but all in all , something about it breathed life into the situation and the people involved…something of the heart was moved in a good direction. I’m all about LIFE … life with my husband, life with 4 adult children, their spouses and 7 grandchildren (to date, that is :), life in our home and life in a wild adventure we tend to label “ministry”.   In reality , all of these categories mesh together to make up the “organic me”. Relational , redeeming and restoring are some of my favorite words and they give life to my soul as I walk it all out with Jesus Christ, the Giver of all life.
