God really CAN heal your heartbreak from sexual abuse

I understand the pain of sexual trauma. After a long journey of healing with God's help, He called me to write Heartmending to offer hope to other survivors. Discover how God can lead you through a process of telling your story, learning healthy coping skills, lamenting, caring for your soul, forgiving, and being restored to joy and wholeness.

About me

Nancy leaf.png

I fell in love with Jesus forty years ago while on my honeymoon in Europe when Tom and I went to L'Abri. I've been in pursuit of His transformative truth ever since.


I thrive on Earl Grey tea, green smoothies, sourdough, and chocolate. After sixty years in Southern California, we relocated to the breathtaking Pacific Northwest to be near our daughters and six grandchildren.


When I'm not writing, I'm hiking in the forest, playing with my Northwest Farm Terrier Rosie, hanging out with grandchildren, or laughing my head off with Tom.

Listen to my interview on the Find Hope Here podcast!

I'm here for you.                Let's connect.
