“She laughs without fear of the future.”

In fifth grade, Sandy’s teacher gave the class a writing assignment that would eventually change the trajectory of her life. After turning hers in, Sandy’s teacher requested to speak with her privately, asking from where she had copied the story. Sandy said she had not copied it, and, in fact, shared how she got the idea for the story. The teacher’s face lit up and responded, “Sandy, you’re a writer!”

The seed of a dream was planted that day, but Sandy doubted her dreams of writing while she and her husband raised five children, three with extra challenges. But those forty years of having kids under their roof was a treasure trove of many heart-touching and often humorous stories. She’s shared a few of those stories in the multiple anthologies she’s contributed to over the years. In spring of 2022, her long-awaited book Some Miracles Need a Mom releases.

Sandy also uses her storytelling skills as a public speaker and continues to pursue her passion for mentoring women, helping others discover that raising children and keeping their marriages strong simultaneously is possible. The story of how Sandy has accomplished much for her family despite her many weaknesses is an extraordinary example for all.

And he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses,
so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
[2 Corinthians 12:9]
