Cathy was "raised in church" all of her life, but tried to abandon her faith in college. Unable to convince herself that God did not exist, she returned to full faith in Christ in 1974. After more than a decade of serving in youth and college ministry, Cathy had what she now calls a “grace awakening” in 1987 which helped her to rediscover her first love in Christ and abandon law-based Christianity. Later she and her husband David founded a church-based Bible institute and were re-ordained by their denomination. In 2009, she and David began a teaching ministry called Studies in Grace and Faith which is dedicated to sharing “the good news about good things from our good God” (www.graceandfaithministries.org). Her first book, ARE WE PREACHING "ANOTHER" GOSPEL? was written to help the church rediscover the gospel of God’s grace, and recently, she published OVERCOMING THE OVERWHELMING to encourage believers to rediscover faith in God, especially in circumstances that seem impossible. Today, she and her husband continue to focus on sharing good news with God’s beloved people through their teaching ministry in Chico and Vacaville, California.
