Children's Ministry Leader

My Story

I feel blessed to have grown up in a relationship with Jesus Christ. From the time I was born (in the great state of Montana), being involved in a body of believers was my family’s weekly routine, and I grew to love and embrace that community. My parents and church family instilled in me a love for God’s Word and encouraged me to surrender my life to Christ and to know Him as my Lord and Savior, and then to serve Him - both in and out of church. As early as high school I served in children’s ministry and in college led singing for preschoolers as well as being a junior high, then high school leader. Later, I taught Sunday School and led worship for all ages. My degree in Elementary Education, and jobs within public schools has provided various experiences working with kids, but being able to teach others about God’s love, His Word and His plan for their lives is my passion! I am thrilled to be able to lead the youngest generation here at Grace in that direction - loving God, knowing His Word of Truth, fully surrendering their lives to Him, and living faithfully obedient for Him! It is also my desire to assist parents in the tremendous role of raising kids to know and love God and to help them navigate through the rapid (sometimes raging) waters of that journey!

My husband and I have 3 grown children, two who attend and serve along with us at Grace and one who is married and lives in Ohio. Besides being with my family, I also love to read, do Jazzercise, play pickle ball, and board games, read, get lunch with friends….oh, and read!!

My Hope for Grace

I desire that regardless of one’s age or past experiences, people (kids) would feel welcomed and loved in this place! From infants feeling safe and cared for, to preschoolers beginning to explore their world being pointed to its Creator, to school-age kids opening the Bible and discovering true stories of God’s amazing power and Jesus’ life-changing example - I pray they would hear, then read, and finally know the TRUTH of God’s Word and courageously live it out each day into adulthood, knowing they are supported by their faith community here at Grace.
