I was born in Regina and came to know Jesus through my best friend in high school. Soon after, our family moved to Estevan, and I had the opportunity to meet new friends in a new high school. These soon to be best friends of mine encouraged me to get involved in the church we all were attending. Thus began my experiences in Children’s Ministry. Twenty years later, children of all ages still hold a part of my heart.
I met my husband at Canadian Bible College in 1993 and we welcomed our daughter into our lives in 2001. Since 2007, I share the care of my disabled brother with my mother, both of whom live with us. I enjoy reading (especially suspense novels), crafting, and volunteering at my daughter’s school on Thursday mornings and I manage to keep busy with our various activities.
I started as the Children’s Ministry Coordinator in the summer of 2007. I am often told that I have an abundance of energy, but I know it is God who provides it to me. The kids whom I interact with each week energize me. The smiles and laughter, jokes and stories that I get to hear from innocent little hearts encourages me to keep going. I desire for children to know Jesus, who loves them so very much. I feel it is important for kids today to know that children are important to God and that He has done many things through young lives. I am where I am today because a friend loved me enough to tell me about Jesus. My prayer is that I can help other children experience His love too!
