The True Intimacy of Becoming a Water Walker is a devotional book inspired by Angel’s son, Joshua. This book is all about stretching your faith to be a person who steps out of their comfort... More > zone to meet God who is waiting on the waters of life which are often uncertain. Waiting for you to not only walk to Him, but walk with Him. At the end of each devotion is an "Intimate Moment with Christ",a section to reflect on areas of your journey and walk with Christ. Most of the devotions you will read have been inspired by her son who lives with Autism every day. As she watches him and his grasp of Christ, it has challenged her in her own walk with the Lord and what it means to truly become a water walker. Angel's prayer is that God will use her books as an avenue to draw you into a deeper relationship with the Lord that is truly intimate as you choose to leave the boat and walk on the waters of uncertainty into His safe embrace.< Less
We all have a plan in our heads of how we “think” life ought to be when we marry and have children. When those plans are shattered, it is like someone came up to your card table while you... More > were putting together a jigsaw puzzle and the pieces went everywhere. Yet, your puzzle did not just hit the floor, it scattered to the winds and you now stand there with an empty box.
Life Inside the Box of a Jigsaw Puzzle is a book about finding God’s Grace, Strength, Hope and Understanding inside the Spectrum of Autism.
I am a parent who is inspired daily by our son who was born and blessed with Autism. May you find blessing, hope...and a new look within the puzzle of Autism.< Less

More > There is something funny about BOOGERS no matter what age you are and to share imagination with children over something that everyone has...well, it is fun! May you enjoy!

For most of us, we grew up during a time where there was not a lot to do but play outside. Today our kids are bombarded with video games and movies. IPods and texting. Computers and video cams. ... More > However, with all the technology out there, we have found one thing that never “bores” a kid…sports! So, we decided to try a 3 Day Sport Camp instead of a traditional VBS. 3 jam packed days filled with sport prizes and learning basic soccer skills all wrapped around life energizing lessons from the GOD’S WORD. No, this did not come in a box filled with CD’s, DVD’s, posters and gimmicks. We worked on a shoe string budget, wrote our own curriculum and purchased prizes from oriental trading. At the end, we had our kids bring a white t-shirt and we ironed on the SC3 logo so they could remember the life altering sport camp of the summer! We know that if our community of kids thought SC3 rocked, your community will also!< Less
In 2008 I finished a manual that I use to train teachers and parents regarding working together for the benefit of our children on the Autism Spectrum. In 2010 I was asked to speak at a Leadership... More > Retreat regarding Special Needs in the church and teamwork. This book is a manual, a starting point to help churches navigate special needs within their church. What that looks like and what must happen. When I pondered writing this, I sat back and thought about what it is that I desire most as a parent, professional and the wife of a pastor in the smaller church when it comes to special needs? Three things came to mind and it is truly amazing how they actually link together and UNIFY. From experience with our own son who has Autism and the wife of a pastor, I can honestly say I have seen this work and open doors to a group of families who often times feel they have nowhere to go for support, encouragement and acceptance.< Less
