God has graciously allowed me to be a wife to Brian, my best friend and wonderful husband of 14 years. We have been involved in youth ministry for the majority of our marriage, and this shared love for young people is one of the things that define us as a couple. The Lord has also gifted to us two amazing children, Jonah and Rachel. I am first and foremost a sinner saved by grace, and am daily faced with the reality of my need for the gospel of Jesus Christ. As a wife and mother, God has shown me much of His own heart as my eternal heavenly Father. Our family enjoys playing games, reading, creative activities, and just drinking in the beauty of God’s creation in various ways.
