I was raised by wonderful parents in bilingual Montreal, Canada.  My older sister was a dwarf, which colored my understanding from early on.  The political landscape in Quebec, when I was a teen, erupted into martial law and separatism.  Without a Biblical worldview, I assimilated that chaos in with the 60’s mantras.  While in university and as a young married in Boston, I was involved in various forms of rebellion and anarchy.  During that time I taught secondary grades and then trained in New York for the theater, where I spent decade acting on stage and in film.  I had attended church while growing up, but chose to discard it—until at thirty-one I found myself unable to control circumstances or people.  It was then that I called to God for His help, which He has given me from that day to this.

My early years walking with Jesus took me to upstate New York, working as a counselor in a home for troubled women.  Then came a communication degree at Regent University, where I met and married my wonderful husband Chris.  We celebrated our 22nd anniversary in February, and our son Joshua is graduating this month from GMU.  When Josh was a toddler, I became the regional coordinator for Prison Fellowship.  For several years, I taught life skills and Bible studies to incarcerated men and women.  My husband and I then became members of Calvary Revival in Hampton Roads, and I was able to help establish their Christian Academy over seven years.  God’s next assignment was to help start The Virginia Chronicle, a weekly newspaper.  I spent about five years as editor, endeavoring to infuse every section with God’s perspective.  More recently I was asked to be the Director of a Crisis Pregnancy Center.  I did this until my mother’s Alzheimer illness in Montreal required my time and traveling.  I remain very involved with the Virginia Coalition for Life, and am a co-host of a weekly pro life radio show.  God is good, all the time, and He is faithful.

About Virginia Christian Alliance

The mission of the VIRGINIA CHRISTIAN ALLIANCE is to promote moral, social and scientific issues we face today from a Biblical point of view. In addition we will refute and oppose, not with hate, but with facts and humor, the secular cultural abuses that have overridden laws and standards of conduct of the past. We will encourage Christians to participate in these efforts through conferences, development of position papers, booklets and tracts, radio/TV spots, newspaper ads and articles and letters-to-the editor, web sites, newsletters and providing speakers for church and civic meetings.
