My husband Bill and I have been married 25 years. I have two children and two step-children. Together we have eleven grandchildren. We also have two great grandchildren.

Bill and I were in a denominational church for many years when the Lord told us it was time to leave. We had gone to many churches, searching for the place where God wanted us to set down roots. In November, 1993, a man we knew from the Gideon’s invited us to come to a “Big Day” event at Gateway Believers Fellowship. We didn’t attend the event, but after another month of searching, we finally decided we would visit Gateway and we have been here ever since!

I enjoy being in the presence of the Lord and being united with a church family that really cares. I enjoy sports, hiking, walking, and being with our own family as time allows. Working with children and seeing them mature and grow in the Lord is one of the greatest joys of my life!
