Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 1993, at the age of 24, she's never let it hold her back. In face, rather than getting depressed about her diagnosis, she eagerly anticipated how God was going to use it! Her illness has continued to be active and degenerative and joint replacements are in her near future. But she feels blessed to have discovered God's purpose in the pain by reaching out to others who are hurting, as well as providing tools for churches who want to increase their awareness of chronic illness.
