I have been serving in music ministries for most of my life, starting at age 12 when I played the piano in our tiny, country church. From that time on, the Lord has grown in me a love for service and for people. In 2021, I felt a call by God to dedicate my life to ministry, and I am currently taking classes in pursuit of ordination in the Church of the Nazarene.
Jesus is my first love, but my husband, Jim, is my very best friend, and my children “make my heart happy every day,” as I often tell them! When I am not working on ministry tasks, I can be found home-educating my own kids or teaching children and teens in my community. Trying new recipes at home, hosting meals and events for my friends, and bundling up on the couch with my family always bring me a smile. Above all, I love the Lord and people, and I hope to spend eternity with YOU!
Here are a few things you may or may not know about me:
Favorite foods: Sushi, Pizza, Tacos, Burgers, Salads
Favorite Book: The Bible of course! I also enjoy humorous children’s books; one of my favorites is Lafcadio by Shel Silverstein.
Favorite movies: Historical fiction and documentaries are my favorite genres, but I don’t have a favorite individual movie.
Favorite hymns: How Great Thou Art
Favorite scripture passage: “You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (NIV Romans 5:6-8).
Pet Peeve: Lack of integrity and lack of manners
Hobbies: Who has time for those?? Ha! While this is true in my current season, I do enjoy art projects and seasonal decorating.
