ABOUT

I grew up in a Christian home with awesome parents.  They faithfully took me to church at FBC Muskogee. At a young age, I decided to follow Jesus.  I was a leader in my youth group and worked at the church during the summer as a Day Camp counselor and an intern. Upon graduating from high school, I attended OBU.  There, I met my husband Bart and studied psychology.  It was also at OBU that I had a strong conviction that much of my walk with the Lord thus far had been about works- the good I was doing and the bad I was avoiding.  God impressed upon me that there is no amount of good that I could do to pay for my sin, but that He had paid it all. My relationship with Him moved from a lot of head knowledge to heart knowledge, relying completely on His mercy and grace.

After graduating from OBU, I married Bart.  We have been married for 20 years and have three children. I have worked for over 10 years as a teacher or teacher assistant in several Mother’s Day Out and Church Weekday programs.   Most recently, I was a teacher assistant in a 3 year old class at QSBC Weekday. Our family moved to Edmond three years ago and have been members of QSBC ever since. We love this church, and I am excited to serve here in a new capacity.

I am an avid reader, dessert eater, and shopper.  I also enjoy travelling and exploring new places with family and friends.

HOPE FOR MY MINISTRY

My hope for my ministry is that through the love God has for me, I am able to love Him and love people. I pray that in every encounter and interaction, people see Jesus in me.  As I serve, I pray I can meet the needs of others with compassion, extending the same mercy and grace that God has so richly given me.
