About Me

About Me

Hello sweet sisters! I’m Stephanie — a woman who has been healed from debilitating depression, healed from cancer (twice) and made completely new through a relationship with Jesus. And I can’t help myself but shout it from the rooftops for all the world to hear and know!

I spend most of my days in Amarillo, Texas with my husband, Ron of 29 years. We have an empty nest, but enjoy hanging out with our adult children, Madelyn & her husband Chris and Thomas & his special girl, Amanda. We adore our sweet grand babies, Dayton, Daniel and Nadine.

I really enjoy coffee, but only in the mornings. My idea of stress relief is a good walk in the sun, playing the piano or reading a book on my back patio. I love the ocean…everything about it brings me joy and peace…and the nearest one is over 1,000 miles away, so I don’t get there as often as I would like. Music speaks to the deep parts of my soul. My biggest dream is to know and love Jesus more, I could get lost in His Word for hours and hours every day if time permitted. I often wonder if there will be a need to study the Bible and teach Bible study in heaven…I’m hoping we still will. 🙂

About Living in Freedom Today (LIFT)

This ministry was birthed in my heart by God so many years ago that I honestly can’t even remember when He gave me the idea. I’m a procrastinator and though I’m sure not proud of that fact, God never gave up on me or the LIFT ministry.

I became a Jesus follower in my middle 20’s and although He made me a new creation at that time, I still continued to struggle with terrible depression. The kind that would keep me from getting out of bed for days. Through a journey of years, God taught me and guided me out of the depths of depression and I have been completely healed since 2005.

Healing — it’s a theme you will find here. And freedom. Through God’s healing in my life, I have found a freedom that I could not have even imagined years ago. And my heart’s desire is that you experience that healing and freedom too. That’s why I am spending my time, setting aside my fears, and sharing my life openly and honestly on these pages.

Please join me on this journey.  Let’s walk this path together and get to know the Creator of the universe in such an intimate way that we will forever be changed!
