I’m Patty – the girl who lives in the boys locker room, or who is a “den mom” in my own private boy-scout troop …
The Love of My Life
I’ve been married to my dear, surfer husband for over 20 years. He has a heart of gold. In life, I’m like the kite and he’s the steady hand holding the string. God brought us together to balance and support one another. I’ve learned a lot about slowing down, patience and humility from my husband. We’ve weathered many tough times. What hasn’t killed us made us stronger. When I grow up, I want to be just like him.
I have two boys – a sixth grader and a college student. My oldest thinks like a philosopher and contends like a lawyer. He has a heart for the underdog and a sense of justice a mile long. He also has a will of steel. My youngest dreams his way through life. He’d rather be creating, crafting, or hosting ten of his closest friends for a day of Legos and playing board games. We have home educated, attended public school, … and currently use a charter school for support.
I am passionate about writing. It has been my privilege to co-author a book entitled, Help! I’m a Parent. Collaborating on that book gave me the courage to write my own. I published Parenting Your Teen Through Chaos and Crisis in February 2018. In September of that same year, I published, Slow Down, Mama: Intentional Living in a Hurried World. The accompanying devotional, Slow Down, Mama: Thirty-One Days to Help You Slow and Savor released in March 2019.
In April 2020 I took a big leap and started writing fiction. I didn’t know if I could, but some writer friends encouraged me. I LOVE IT! Now writing sweet-clean romance has become the joy of my life. I hope you enjoy these engaging, swoon-worthy stories with happily ever afters.
My walk with God is a story of fits and starts, stumbling and soaring. The more beautiful thing is His walk with me. If you want to read my testimony, go here. Life with Him has led me to supporting women overcoming addiction and life on the streets; mentoring women who have been through traumatic childhood experiences; ministering to moms; and coaching women to become all they can be. Jesus lit a fire in me to see people walk into increasing freedom and intimacy with Him.
