I came to Christ through some wonderful Sunday School teachers as a child, but was raised in a denomination where anything beyond salvation (i.e., a personal relationship) wasn’t really taught. When I moved to Texas, God planted me in a dynamic Sunday School class where the teacher and members introduced me to a whole new concept in walking with Christ … a daily, intense, personal, loving relationship. That’s when I began to grow in hunger for the Word and in depth and breadth of faith as I learned to spend time with Him daily at the age of 22.
I have three children, one girl and two boys (Heather, Rob and Jon), one son-in-law (Douglas) and seven grandchildren (six boys and one girl). My hobbies and favorite activities are gardening, crochet, piano, cooking, exercise (to make up for the love of cooking), singing in the choir and working on backstage crew with our community outreach productions.
