Sandy’s new book, 3 Messages From God, Read in an Hour – Remember for a Lifetime engages the reader in new ways to live in awe of God, live pleasing God and to live protected by God.
She is committed to sharing these 3 messages that God gave her, as they are not for her alone, she was a reluctant first-time author until God pinned her down so she could write. Now the impact the book is having on readers has made her a true believer in Trusting God’s plan not her own. Each morning for over a year, Sandy would have to pen these words on the top of her to-do list, in an act of trying to believe them: ‘TRUST God, made me a writer, entrusted with a message, to encourage others.’
Married in 1980, Sandy and Carl spent the first ten years together focused on raising children and running after careers. The Holy Spirit was generous in letting them both come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ within about six months of each other. The blessing of experiencing ‘life before Christ’ and now ‘life with Christ’ is that they can see the emptiness of what they had missed, and it gave them a heart tender to others who are also unknowingly searching. They realize most people just don’t know what they are missing.
Life has been an a great love story as they have been married 39 years, raised 3 adventure seeking, entrepreneurial kids, and have moved more than 28 times. Sandy loves it- Carl hates it. They are forever training their English Lab Brinkley as they split their time between Dallas TX and Boston MA where they own a company that proudly builds things that can carry the label ‘Made in the USA’. As often as they can they take weekend bike rides, hike the local trails, or gather friends around their table.
Their family mission statement coupled with Isaiah 43:10 has guided the last 30 years of their marriage. With a shared a passion to live their lives in a way that helps pre-believers see and know the active love of Christ.
“You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servants whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he.” Isaiah 43:10a
3 Messages From God, Read in an Hour Remember for a Lifetime, is just one way they are trusting God’s plan to be his witnesses.
