Hi I am the director of children's ministry. When I was a young girl church was not a priority it was usually a holiday event, so when I was old enough to decide for myself it was not a priority to me either. My husband Steve and I were dating and both found we had a yearning to get back to church, but we did not attend anywhere faithfully until after several invites to this church by my friend and then co-worker Terri Dakin to a ladies night event. I have attended church here since 1998. I am excited to minister to children in the very same church where I was saved in 1998. I have volunteered in every area in the children’s department from babies to children’s church of elementary ages since my first month attending here. I volunteered at many children’s events and have volunteered in some way at each VBS we have had. I had the opportunity to work alongside Pastor Susan in JAM for 2 years, and co-led VBS, Christmas Musicals, and community events with her. She has taught me so much about ministering to families and helped me learn different ways to teach and lead children in their spiritual formation. I am grateful for her leadership and encouragement because it lead me to where I am now. I truly enjoy sharing Jesus with children and seeing them grow spiritually.
I have been married to my husband Steve since 1996. We were so blessed through our marriage with encouragement and love from WCC community. We have grown spiritually together here at WCC and love serving God in this place.
We have 2 boys both of which are miracles after being born very early. Levi the oldest has been saved and was baptized at WCC. He is growing in the Lord here and enjoys attending church and church camp in the summer. His hobby's are reading comic books, non-fiction novels, riding his bike, and playing video games with friends and with his dad. He is comical, sweet and loving! Hudson the youngest and he has also has had the privilege of attending here since birth. He has a sweet, fun spirit about him and I am excited to see how he will grow in the Lord also becuase he already loves coming to church. Hudson the youngest is full of crazy, fun excitable energy and is just learning who God is. He loves being outside and also at church with his friends.
I enjoy reading Christian education books and Christian novels
I enjoy the mystery series like NCIS, and Blue Bloods
I enjoy Christian rock, and worship music. Some of my favorite artists are Chris Tomlin, Lincoln Brewster, Point of Grace, and Fracessca Battastali
