I am married to my best friend, Rick. I have two beautiful children, Sean, who is in seminary and Tonia who is waiting for us in Heaven. I love to sing, read, and just be with people. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. My blog about our daughter’s murder can be found at http://www.rememberingtonia.com. This blog is about the lessons and experiences that I have learned and want to pass on to others. Titus 2:4 says “so train the young women to love their husbands and children”. I want to share what God has taught me and continues to teach me. I am willing to speak at retreats or weekends and I am writing a book. I am passionate about marriages and teenagers so I will be writing about both! Join me in my Journey of Faith!
We have “beat the odds” in our marriage. In May, 2013. we will celebrate 27 years. I was married at 19, divorced at 22 and I was a single mother to my beautiful daughter. Rick and I met and neither one of us had a relationship with God. We lived together for 2 years before getting married. He adopted my daughter the month after the marriage and our son was born the following year. After being married for 11 years we both accepted Christ as Savior within a few months of each other. First my husband and then myself. That was in 1997. God granted us 10 years of growing with him and preparing us for an event that changed our life forever. Our daughter, at 25 years old, was murdered by her husband on July 1, 2007. Once again, with God’s grace and mercy, we beat the odds. Not only did we stay together, we are closer to God and to each other. We renewed our vows in 2011, in front of family and friends as we committed our marriage to God for the first time and recommitted our marriage to each other for the second time! God is so good!
