Starting Project Penny in 2004 was the beginning of a walk of faith and a true adventure that I want to share with you. My prayer partner Pam said, “You should write these down,” and so I did. “In God We Trust” is now my anthem! I long to bring good news, sprinkled with laughter and love, and to encourage women to take their broken hearts and put them in God’s capable hands for safe-keeping. As we do this, we allow Him to heal, restore, and renew us.
Studying and teaching God’s Word is my passion! I bring along a lifetime of answered prayer, with experiences of redemption and reconciliation. Mine is a story of the hope that is so desperately needed today. Born and raised in San Diego, California, I married Steve Bearden in 1978. We have two children and nine grandkids. God has provided many rich opportunities for me, including being a purchasing agent for a video game company, a teacher, a school administrator, and even working at an UGG store. What a ride!
