My parents started taking me as a six-month-old to Christ Chapel in 1980, when the church met in the basement of the Texas Girls’ Choir Building on Camp Bowie. Around the age of 5, I placed my faith in Jesus at a Good News Club. I was also surrounded at CCBC with many kind and caring Sunday school teachers.
During my high school youth group days, I was taught what it means to walk with the Lord. I wouldn’t say my faith was mature at the time, but I knew I needed to rely on God and trust in His goodness and sovereignty. A few weeks before I headed to Texas A&M, my dad passed away unexpectedly. Though I knew he went to be with the Lord, the loss was devastating, and it took many years of working through not having an earthly father in my life. I now see my total dependence on my Heavenly Father.
My husband, Andy, and I met at Christ Chapel in 2002 and have made the “long” trek from Johnson County (where we live) ever since. I often wished that Christ Chapel could be closer to our home and was pleasantly surprised when I discovered CCBC had formed a South Campus and was holding its first Christmas Eve service in December 2018!
Our three children, Andrew, Amy and Joanna, have been blessed at CCBC with the same kind of loving Sunday school teachers I had growing up. I volunteered in the Children’s Ministry at CCBC, teaching kindergarten through third grade for about six years. I think telling children about Jesus is the best way to spend a Sunday. I am humbled to be serving on staff at the South Campus. I enjoy getting to know our wonderful volunteers and helping children learn that even at a young age they can come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior.
I also enjoy the outdoors, BBQ, being with my family and a good sense of humor.
