Previous Employment: Church Administrative Assistant, before that I worked as a press operator at Center Manufacturing
A book that has inspired you and why: "Not a Fan" The book and the small group helped me learn to grow and walk in my faith.
Verse in the Bible that has been significant: It is not just 1 verse but the whole chapter of 1 Corinthians 13. Love is patient, love is kind. I look at my husband and I realize just how patient and kind he is to me. Then I look at my children, and I can't help but being filled with Love and peace.
A truth about God that amazes you: He knew me before I even existed
The reason you love Voice of Hope: I was given the chance to grow as a christian. To be what Christ wants me to be.
When did God open your eyes to Him: I was 16 years old when I lost my girlfriend in a car accident. She and her sisters were so excited for some skit they were doing in their church. I told them I would come watch the rehearsal. Before they could pick me up I was called into work. I remember hearing the accident come over the scanner. I froze, I knew she was gone, only later did I find out her sister also passed away, along with a little girl who took my place. That little girl passed away that night. I knew in that moment, There was a reason for me to be alive, I had a purpose, I just did not know what that was until 8 years ago.
If everyone would just love each other as Christ loved the church the world would be a better place.
