About Me

    I am just a small town country girl from Erwin, NC. I moved away at the end of middle school to Mooresville but moved back 3 years later. I DO have the 4 most beautiful children. I was married until August of 2006, which was not the best by far. Yes, I have made some bad decisions but we all have from time to time... just to different degrees. I, myself, chose to give my life to the Lord. I am devoted to God and have placed my life in His hands. I spend my time with my amazing children, Kayla, Kiersten, Gage and my stepson John, and my fiance, Michael Todd Furr, who is the most wonderful, kind, compassionate man I have ever met. He truly saved my life, in every way you can imagine. He helped lead me to Christ and has been beside me in my LONG journey in becoming the woman I am today. I am a stay at home mom and my family is my life!

    My son Gage has been diagnosed with a rare disease known as PANDAS, (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Strept...), and it has really changed our lives. It is very hard to watch your child suffer and not be able to do anything about it. It is not a booboo I can kiss and make better, or just a cold I can give him a medicine to make it go away. It is listening to him wake up screaming in terror sometimes 4 to 5 times a night in fear of his life, or him ripping his clothes off in horror because he FEELS or SEES something crawling on him! Repetitive behaviors that he can't stop or he doesn't understand... His childhood has been taken from him and replaced with routines and fears... and I can't find the way to give that back. It has changed our whole reality. Something I never dreamt I would have to go through.... and would never wish upon my worst enemy!  

    I am honest and to the point. So if you ask, be prepared, but you never have to wonder if I lied. I don't! I am as true of a friend as they come. I DON'T DO DRAMA and gossip is for teenagers. If you want someone to be there when no one else will and even when everyone is... Im Always Right Here! I have learned a lot of things about myself. I have had some deep rooted resentments and anger for a lot of years. I have learned to forgive... not to forget but to truly forgive, for the only person suffering from that pain was me... and I'm finally FREE! I am really insecure, not just due to what I have gone through as an adult, but in childhood as well. I have a wonderful man and a loving God that is helping me with that! God has a plan for everyone. I believe everything happens for a reason. Even though I have some major emotional scars, you ask me "IF I knew then what I know now, would I still do it again?". That's a hard question seeing how I have made some really bad choices, but it wouldn't take me a second to tell you yes.I wouldn't be who I am or where I'm at today, a mother, a wife, a friend and a servant of God! Who would want to change that? God Bless You All!
