My name is Elsa. I love Jesus. I am wife to Brian – and mama to eight beautiful children, three step, one bio, four adopted. They are my treasures: Sean, Jessica, Cassandra, Samantha, Wilna, Lovence, Laurentz and Savannah. Over the years I’ve also had the privilege of writing hundreds of articles, six books and a gazillion blogs. I’m a communicator at heart and love the chance to share how Jesus shows up in our every day world. I’ve also been able to do that as a retreat/conference speaker over the last 20 years or so – what a joy!

I’m grateful for the ways God lets me share about him.
