At age 60, Fleda learned to ride a motorcycle and spends many hours singing, worshipping and rejoicing over God's beauty as she rides. She keeps busy by riding her motorcycle with friends and family - communing with God and learning what it means to walk through the valley of the shadow of death, finding the grace, beauty, light and life that is there. After the loss of her husband, she continues forward in the calling of God and believes in the message and ministry of Lanyap Life Services, joining the Sorensons and Gaupps in helping people through their Journey to Wholeness. Her life has been a story of trial and triumph and through it all worship has been a force for victory.
