Bio: Born in Broken Bow, Nebraska, I grew up in a Godly home with the best of parents and a great brother. Since then I have lived in three Texas towns, attended Bible school in Canada, and gone on two missions trips to Mexico and Italy. I've enjoyed employment as a secretary, receptionist, and office manager. For years I've worked with kids in children's ministry and Christian education. Right now I am the secretary at our church. However, my favorite "Job" is being a happy wife to Michael Madrid, and mother to our daughter Amaris. I believe encouraging this generation through my writing is part of my ministry calling. Our culture pressures us to conform to something God never designed us to be. I pray this blog inspires this generation to rise up and be more like Jesus. As sons and daughters of the King, we are truly called to be "living royalty" to our world.
