    This blog is a mother--daughter endeavor!    

~About Sharon (The Daughter):

   My husband and I have two children, a boy and a girl. Teaching is one of my favorite things to do! I homeschool our kiddos and am thankful for my husband being our tech guy! I also enjoy working in ladies' ministry and have had the opportunity to co-teach in several ladies' retreats. 

    Teaching is wonderful, but I am mostly passionate about God's grace...in both the good and the bad times. This blog will hopefully be encouraging to Christian ladies, as its emphasis will be on God's goodness in life, no matter how bumpy it gets!

   I am writing a book (with a physical therapist) about this very topic! It is called "CORE: Biblical Principles for When Life Gets Bumpy." Details can be viewed by clicking on the "Upcoming Book" tab above.

~About Debbie (The Mom):

   Hello! I’m Debbie Christopher, and I’m so excited to be joining Sharon in this venture. It is our goal to challenge and encourage you as you travel along life’s journey.... and deal with the ‘bumps’ (and road construction zones!) along the way.   

   I have been married to my wonderful husband since 1977. We have been blessed with two children who have grown up to be be loving and godly adults with their awesome spouses, and they have blessed us with 5 most amazing grandkids!

   I am a retired educator and am currently grandmothering  and pursuing my writing dreams. I taught early elementary grades at Christian schools in Texas and Missouri for 27 years, served as Director of a childcare center, and served for 5 years as an instructor at Baptist Bible College (Springfield, Mo) in both the Education and Church Ministry departments. I have authored LightThoughts blog and have written and presented several Bible lessons and devotions to ladies from our churches in Springfield, and formerly, in Bolivar, Mo. I have also led Children’ ministries, prepared VBS materials, and served as an AWANA Commander.  

 

And, last, but not least, we, like you, have experienced ‘road construction zones’ and ‘speed bumps’ along the way...
