Denise is married to her husband of 19 years, a homeschooling mother of five, and grandmother of one. She is active in the church fellowship that she helped to get started (see Why Go to Church?). Denise also keeps busy with a home school co-op, her kids' athletic activities, enjoying the menagerie of animals (goats, horse, chickens, dogs, and cat) on her small farm in northern California, and writing.
In her words: "I started writing because I felt "led" to with little idea of what I would write about. I am continuing to write because I believe God has called me to do it and I have found that I enjoy it immensely. 2011 and 2012 have been difficult years for my family. Writing or reading what I have written has encouraged me in ways I never imagined. I hope that what I write will be encouraging and a blessing to my readers."
