Hi friend! I’m glad you’re here.
Red Chair Moments is my place of rest, encouragement and hope in a weary world.
I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but God is holding me together. My mission is to encourage others as God encourages me so that “you and I will be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith” (Romans 1:12). ~April

I share life with these amazing people.
I’ve been married for 18 years to a patient man who loves me quirks and all. We have two children in middle school (pray for us) who are active in soccer, softball, and spending our money.
In 2016, I was diagnosed with Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis, a rare neuromuscular disease, characterized by severe muscle weakness and episodic paralysis. Suddenly, I stepped out of an active healthy life, into the world of chronic illness.
