I first heard the gospel from a persistent friend in one of my high school science classes.  After attending an apologetics Bible study at a small, local church, I came face to face with my hopeless existence without God. The truth of who this God was and how much He loved me penetrated my heart and mind.

My rock-star hubby, Mike, and I have been married for nearly 30 years and we have 3 children: Abi-25, Joshua-20 and Hannah-17. Our family has attended Redemption Gateway since 2011 and we enjoy being involved in a variety of ways here at our church home.

Before becoming a stay-at-home mom I taught at a Christian preschool. I have a heart for kids and their families to hear, and be changed by, the Gospel. Homeschooling for the past 20 years and coaching a local speech and debate club for the past 9 years, has taught me a great deal about life and the Lord. I am passionate about encouraging and empowering the families and volunteers who are a part of our Kids Ministry to walk in the power and freedom of God’s great love!
