I am a Christian wife, mom and entrepreneur. My entire life has been an adventure in personal growth – always seeking to become my best self as a wife, mother and businesswoman.
As a member of a military family, I was born into a life of adventure, moving around the country several times and even spending a year in Guam. My family eventually settled in New Jersey, so I lived in South Jersey for most of my schooling and early working years. Marrying Bob Hastings in 1965 kept the adventure in my life going. Bob is a skier, SCUBA diver and lover of travel who taught me to enjoy his favorite activities and share in his love of nature.
While being a stay-at-home mom, I found a way into entrepreneurship that enabled me to maintain my values of God, marriage and family. My direct sales career has enabled me and my family to travel to several exotic locations where we have enjoyed SCUBA diving, skiing and other exciting adventures together. Bob and I are extremely proud of our two entrepreneurial sons and enjoy spending time with our family often.
In my book “Happy as 2 Pigs in a Blanket: Lessons Learned From 50 Years of Marriage”, I share how my faith and growing relationship with God brought about our happy life as a family. You will find yourself in the down-to-earth stories. Our book is not just about marriage but how we grew in body, mind and spirit through the years.
I am right here today because I know my life has not been in vain. I have asked God to show me how I can serve Him through mentoring others as a way of giving back and passing on the wisdom He has entrusted to me.
