Areas of Ministry: Loving and Encouraging Others
Family: Happily married to my hunky best friend since 2004. We have four handsome, smart and sweet boys - Devin, Corbin, Westin and Halstin. I absolutely love being the queen of the castle surrounded by all of my men!
Saved: I grew up in a wonderful Christian home but there was a disconnect between my head and heart. I never fully grasped what God's love was all about. As an adult, I began searching and through an amazing freedom class at Gateway Church, I finally found HIM! I am desperately in love with my Savior!
