I N S P I R A T I O N & G R A T I T U D E
First and foremost, I am grateful to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is the one who has planted a deep love for children and families into my heart. He has called me to serve in this area and for that I am so very grateful.
The second greatest blessing in my life was meeting and marrying Chris Osborne. We began our life together in 1974. Over the years…in good times and hard times…he has remained my steady companion, friend and soul mate. If I could have chosen any life…it would be the walk that we have walked as a couple— serving the Lord together in the ministry, raising our children and enjoying life and laughter in marriage. He has always taught me to find my passion, couple it with my gifts and go for it! He is the love of my life.
The third greatest blessing in my life has been the joy of my children, Stephen and Lauren. They have added a whole new dimension to my life that I did not know could even be experienced. Stephen brought Courtney into our family as the greatest daughter-in-love in the world. I feel so fortunate that now that they are grown…they have become our best friends. They will never know the depth of my love for them. Since 2009 we have added three grandchildren to the Osborne crew! Charis and Drew were born in December of 2009 and Wesley joined us in February of 2011! We are now officially, Honey and Pops, and we are loving it!
