As a child, I grew up in a church-going family with the desire to know God better. I had always been drawn to my Children’s Bible and a life of prayer. However, it was in my later year of 31 that I can claim to know Jesus as alive and in the business of saving us and redeeming our lives in this world. Today, I have four young adult children and a marriage that has grown over the last 26 years. My faith, spritual journey, and constant seeking of the Lord led me into Seminary, Chaplain work, and service both local and abroad. All I know is that if I can continue in my obedience to His will, and daily seek his thoughts through His word, I will continue in a life that will be strengthened through difficulties and abounding in the joy I have come to know through my savior, Jesus Christ.
