“Journey Towards Maturity”
The Joys and Pains of Growing Both Emotionally and Spiritually

“That’s just the way I am. I don’t need to change!” Sadly, this is an extremely dangerous comment many individuals are guilty of saying. Our relationship with God and our relationships with people will suffer as a result of this...
For most of my life, I thought when I reached a certain age I would somehow magically achieve emotional and spiritual maturity. Later I discovered that in order to genuinely grow and put my childish ways behind, I had to learn how to love. ...
I’m a certified teacher, freelance artist, and writer. For three years, I’ve enjoyed working for Cameron Press LLC by taking photographs and writing articles for Fellowship Alliance Chapel’s Connection magazine. Each month I have the honor of interviewing pastors, leaders, and volunteers, and putting together Ministry Profiles for numerous groups and ministries. I also enjoy helping my husband with creative projects for clients who need services in graphic design, photography, website, video production, and even fun Art Camps for children at Josh Street Design .
In addition, I enjoy instructing various courses and workshops I’ve written for groups of women. After 18 years of teaching in various towns, I’ve discovered there is joy in creating and writing that can lead to healing, strength, peace, and maturity. Each class I create for women includes learning how to find healing and strength through creative expression and discovering how creating a piece of art is very similar to how God molds us. I’m also extremely grateful that God is continuously opening doors for me to speak to church groups and radio stations, too. I’ve had the privilege of sharing my testimony on KBWomen Radio, Christian Devotions Speak Up Radio, KPXQ 1360 AM Radio in Arizona, KBRITE 740 AM Radio in California, Tandem and Bridge Radio on 89.7 FM in New Jersey.
I created this website to allow us to share how we are growing both emotionally and spiritually. Writing and recording our journey towards maturity is very beneficial for us and others. Our words are a powerful way to encourage and inspire people to grow, and our stories give us a chance to reflect and see God in the midst of our joy and pain.
My desire for this website is to motivate and encourage individuals to take the continuous journey towards emotional and spiritual maturity. I have committed myself towards this goal and want to help us understand how we grow and why it is important we become the men/women God desires us to be. No one will reach perfection here on Earth, but I want to inspire others to mature and strive to be like Christ.
Join me on the journey towards growing into a mighty individual for God’s kingdom and “…become mature, attaining the whole measure of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13).
