Throw me to the wolves and I will come back leading the pack!

I have had many people ask me how I came up with the name "Conquered Wolf" for my website and contact.  Honestly, for me, the answer is quite simple...  

Being diagnosed with Systemic Lupus in February of 2007, my world was turned upside down.  I quickly learned that Lupus is the Latin word for "wolf".  Lupus is an auto-immune disease that has no cure, but is capable of remission.  The problem being that it is always "lurking" in my system, making me uncertain of when it will strike again or what complications will arise.  The conquered part arose by me still being alive and overcoming the odds set against me from the start.  Three times, within the first year of diagnosis, my parents were told to prepare for the worst.  Now, over ten years later, by the Grace of God, I am still alive today and proving my doctors wrong each day.

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, 
to give you a future and a hope."

Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
