Personal Testimony: I put my trust in Jesus Christ at Vacation Bible School when I was 5 years old. The teacher that prayed with me that day became a prayer warrior for me for many years, before the Lord brought her home. I am so grateful that I came to a saving knowledge of Him at an early age because I have had a lot of time to grow and love Him more everyday!  

Ministry Passion: I love serving my Lord in so many ways, but probably the main area is opening our home weekly for Bible study and fellowship with our Life Group.

Kodak Moment: Seeing Eric down the isle, waiting for me to become his wife & the birth of our two kids.
