As a homeschooling mama to 7 precious blessings, the only super hero quality she truly possesses is her ability to leap tall laundry piles in a single bound. She is blessed with a strong, hardworking, and adventurous husband who isn’t afraid of the chaos and dives right into this crazy life with her. Together, through all of life’s ups and downs, their love for Jesus and faith have been their guide. Brandy has a passion to share that faith driven life with others. For years, she ministered to a moms’ ministry and parents’ ministry at a mega church, leading families to put Christ at the center of their journey. Her love of the written word and her call to encourage families has led her to minister through writing as well. Her favorite place to be is at her kitchen table with her people, breaking bread, sharing stories, or playing rummy 500.
