About me

Introduction Hello! My name is Denise Haynes. I’m 54 years old, the mother of two girls, Nana/mama of two spectacular grandchildren and happily married to my husband, Don, for 33 years. I’m a Christian, consider myself to be deeply spiritual but not religious, somewhat traditional but also socially progressive. I’ve been blessed beyond anything I deserve and feel grateful every day to have been gifted with such an idyllic life. I’m also a grieving mother whose heart has been broken beyond anything I could possibly describe. Losing my precious daughter to cancer has changed who I am on every level, but I choose joy despite my mourning because I believe the promise of Jeremiah 29:11 with every fiber of my being: “For I know the plans I have for you” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
