Life is certainly an unexpected journey. As I look past over the years, I can’t say I could have ever guessed where I would be today.

I was born just outside Jerusalem, Israel and lived overseas much of my life, traveling throughout Europe and the Middle East. I’m the sixth of 14 children, and I love every one of my family members. We’ve been through some deep valleys together, but God has proved Himself faithful and steadfast in His love towards us as He has refined us and sanctified us all the while–even through the most painful of times.

When I’m not working as a Security Analyst, I spend most of my time with family. At this season in my life, I am blessed to be near them.

My life exists so that I may bring glory to my Creator. He paid the ransom for my life, and it is my joy to love and serve Him.

Yet I often fail to walk worthy of Him. This life I am living has been a growing experience–as I learn to lay aside my own desires and take up my cross and follow after Him.

I pray that this website may be an instrument of encouragement to you, dear reader. Perhaps in some small way, the testimonies of God’s grace that I share with you may build your own faith in Him.
