ABOUT ME

I love kids, families, and all the craziness that comes with it both personally and professionally. When not at work there are few things that invigorate me more than learning a new bible fact, going for a long run in the forest, or simply laughing with close friends. Leisure time for me often includes reading a good book, doing a puzzle, building a new house project, or calling my mom or sisters.

ABOUT ME

From very early on, God gave me a love for kids...when I grew up, I wanted to be a wife and mom. I sometimes wondered if our decision to homeschool was a selfish one on my part so I could spend more time the fam! I've loved being a mom to my kids and now Grammie to my grandson. I think my favorite thing about being a preschool teacher is that I get to hang out with kids...they are my people. I love seeing how God has gifted them in unique ways and how God uses those gifts to minister to others. Another passion that has developed over the past 20 years or so is a result of God impressing upon me His heart towards kids who have had a rough start in life. Every summer,it is my privilege to serve alongside my family at camp for foster kids called Royal Family Kids camp. If you want to know anything about it, ask me...I love talking about it! I also enjoy cooking, reading a good book, coffee with friends and hanging out with my growing family.
