Their life struggles led her to Jesus Christ in 1989. Subsequently both her husband and son were saved. In 1995, she put her software management career aside to become a stay-at-home mom, but the Lord changed her life work to helping hurting families like hers. Their adult ABC son and his wife are parents of one girl and two boys.
