My husband, Bill, and I are the authors of Men Are Like Waffles—Women Are Like Spaghetti (more than 300,000 copies sold) and Red-Hot Monogamy. In addition, I've written 52 Ways to Wow Your Husband and The 10 Best Decisions a Woman Can Make. We're co-founders and co-directors of Love-Wise, an organization to help people connect love and wisdom and bring practical insights to their personal relationships.
I started teaching the Bible and leading small group discussions as a senior in high school. I'm a contributing writer for Crosswalk.com and a member of the International Society for Women Apologists. I've written articles for Today’s Christian Woman and Home Life. I'm happily married to my high school sweetheart, Clay, a Christian apologetics professor at Biola University. We've both lived in Southern California our entire lives, and we were foster parents to three preteen/teen girls at once. I enjoy exotic foods, like the rooster claws and century eggs we had in Asia.
I started painting at the age of 40, after surrendering to God’s call to live and thrive in the city. My art has been featured in multiple gift books and adult coloring books. My husband, Michael, and I make our home in Washington State.
