I was raised in the church and learned how to go through the motions of religion really well but I did not know much more than that! When I was in the 6th grade I finally understood my need for a personal relationship with Jesus. From that point on, I began to learn (and have continued to learn) how to develop that relationship through time spent in the word, in study, prayer, and in community with other believers. I continue to be in awe of His love for me and the grace that He shows me on a daily basis! I am thankful for the way our time at Coastal has grown our family spiritually and blessed us with a church family that we value greatly. I was baptized as an infant but chose to be baptized again as an adult as a symbol of my choice to follow Christ.
I grew up all over the United States but consider Colorado Springs to be my “hometown.” I joined the Navy in 2000 and met my husband very soon afterward! He has continued his Navy career while I have had the privilege of being a work from home mom for the last 15 years. I have played active roles in Family Readiness Groups for the Navy, PTA at the kids’ schools, women’s ministries at various duty stations, as well as building a home based business.
I am married to David and mother to Ian, Isabelle, and Isaac. I love being creative, family game nights, traveling, cooking, the Denver Broncos, and time with my family and friends.
